MORAGA -- Less than a year after graduating from Saint Mary's College, Matthew Dellavedova will have his number retired.
The Gaels' all-time leader in numerous categories, including career scoring, Dellavedova is just the second men's basketball player in Saint Mary's history earn the honor, joining Tom Meschery.
Dellavedova wore No. 4 during a decorated four-year career in Moraga.
Now a rookie with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Australia native will be present for a pregame ceremony Feb. 15 when the Gaels play BYU.
Coach Randy Bennett first announced plans to retire Dellavedova's jersey number during the Presesaon Tipoff Dinner.
But the ceremony date was only recently finalized. It will take place during the NBA's All-Star break.
One of Dellavedova's most memorable moments as a Gael came last season against BYU when he hit a running 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Saint Mary's a 70-69 win at the Marriott Center.
Dellavedova was also a three-time All-West Coast Conference pick and set school records in career 3-pointers, assists, free throw percentage, games played and games started.
He excelled in the classroom, as well, and was school's first-ever male first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American.
