It’s the weekend, Florida State fans.
As you make your big plans, see what’s in The Daily Sauce.
Florida State basketball will be missing some key players on Saturday, but there will be a new addition to the Donald L. Tucker Center. That will be the jersey of FSU legend George McCloud.
McCloud’s No. 21 jersey will reportedly be retired during halftime of the contest against Wake Forest. It will be part of Alumni Weekend.
A 6-foot-8 native of Daytona Beach, McCloud played at FSU from 1985 to 1989. McCloud averaged 13.5 points per game for his career, including nearly 23 as a senior during the 1988-89 campaign. That season, he was named the Metro Player of the Year and an All-American by multiple publications. He was a 2-time first-team all-conference performer.
McCloud still ranks in the top 10 in program history in points and made 3-pointers. Known as a marksman, McCloud was selected seventh overall by the Indiana Pacers in the 1989 NBA Draft. McCloud spent 12 seasons in the NBA with the Pacers, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets.
