Cheryl Miller is one of the most legendary women's basketball players of all time. An enshrined member of both the Basketball Hall of Fame AND the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, Miller scored 3,018 points during her storied career at USC, as well as being named the three-time winner of the Naismith College Player of the Year award. She went on to help lead Team USA to Olympic gold, before eventually hanging up her sneakers and focusing on broadcasting and coaching careers.
She remains one of the most legendary figures in women's basketball history, and her number was retired by her alma mater in 1986 -- the first basketball player at the school to receive such an honor.
That said, her brother Reggie (heard of him?) was filming a commercial at USC on Tuesday, and he noticed his sister's retired number hanging from the rafters. Well, sort of. He noticed her number SHARING A BANNER with several other female greats, whereas the men with retired numbers each had their own banner.
Understandably, he wasn't too pleased by what he was seeing.
Preach it, Reggie. PREACH. Now let's all hope USC listens to what he's saying here.
UPDATE: USC reached out to comment, via Twitter, and explained why Gus Williams currently has his own jersey, and why Miller does not.
@darcymaine_espn Your story is missing some important facts. First, like the Celtics, we put all the greats in each sport on one banner.— USC Trojans (@USC_Athletics) February 24, 2016
@darcymaine_espn Second, Gus Williams' jersey was retired this year, so it stands alone for now and will join the group next year.— USC Trojans (@USC_Athletics) February 24, 2016
