Iowa State doesn’t often retire jerseys, doing so just seven times for men’s basketball, four times for women’s basketball, and once for football. What goes into retiring a jersey?

From an e-mail with Athletic Director Jamie Pollard,

“We have two minimum requirements:

1. Have to be in the Athletics Hall of Fame.

2. Have to have graduated from Iowa State.”

That settles why Fizer isn’t in the rafters, however, why not remember one of his best achievements as a Cyclone?

Via Kirk Haaland on Twitter: “Over a six game stretch in 2000 where 5 games were to clinch the B12 title, Marcus Fizer averaged 33.5 points per game.”

Enjoy his highlights below.

While we’re on the topic of retiring jerseys, I think we should #Hang4AtHilton.
