BREAKING NEWS: Trojan basketball great Dumas to have jersey retired Nov. 20

Star Staff Reports

Dumas grphicOn Nov. 20, Millington Central High School will retire the jersey of alumni Tony Dumas.

The ceremony will be held between the girls’ and boys’ game in the William Osteen Gymnasium.

Dumas is arguably the best player to ever wear a Millington Trojan Basketball uniform. His athleticism and quickness made him a threat on both offense and defense.

After high school, he electrified fans at the University of Missouri-Kansas City from 1990-94. Dumas made an immediate impact as a freshman averaging 16.5 points a game. He went on to average 22 points a game in his career with the Roos.

In 1994, Dumas was selected by the Dallas Mavericks as the 19th pick in the first round of the NBA Draft. During his four years in the NBA, Dumas produced multiple 20-plus point performances, including a career-high 39 points against the Phoenix Suns.

The night will begin with game one of the Hall of Fame doubleheader with the St. Benedict Lady Eagles against the Millington Lady Trojans at 6 p.m.

Then the ceremony to retire Dumas’ No. 23 jersey will take place prior to the tipoff between the Eagles and Trojans.
