McGair: New London High to retire number of PC's Kris Dunn

After this Thursday night, no one will be allowed to wear the No. 3 jersey for the New London (Conn.) High boys’ basketball any more.

Prior to the Whalers’ 7 p.m. home contest against Hamden High, the program will retire Kris Dunn’s number. Dunn earned McDonald’s All-American honors as a senior at New London High before coming to Providence College in the fall of 2012.

“At New London, we have two policies. We have a jersey retirement and a number retirement,” explained Craig Parker, head coach at New London High. “A jersey retirement implies that you can retire a jersey but someone can wear that number. We’re actually doing a number retirement for Kris. No one will wear his number again.”

Back in December, Parker mentioned the idea of properly honoring Dunn’s contributions to New London basketball. At the time, the only detail left to iron out was to find a convenient date for the PC sophomore to come down. With the Friars in the area leading up to Saturday’s crucial game at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center against DePaul, this week seemed as good a time as any to set everything in stone.
