Jerseys Retired for Three Heathwood Basketball Legends
On Friday, January 12, former Heathwood basketball greats Brionna Dickerson, '05, Corey Littlejohn, '11, and A'ja Wilson, '14, returned to campus to have their jerseys formally retired.
Dickerson is Heathwood’s all-time leading scorer, amassing more than 3,000 points without playing her senior season, before going on to a stellar career at South Carolina, where she was 8th all-time in career 3-point percentage at the time of her graduation.
Littlejohn collected more than 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds, while leading the Highlanders to the 2011 State Championship, before a four-year career at UNC Asheville, including a trip to the NCAA Tournament.
Wilson earned the Naismith Trophy as the nation’s top high school basketball player in 2014, a season where she led the Lady Highlanders to the State Championship. At South Carolina, she is the two-time reigning SEC Player of the Year and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four in the Lady Gamecocks' National Championship run.
All three were be joined on the floor by their families and Heathwood coaches and administrators for the ceremony.
