WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Sean Kilpatrick, a Yonkers native who graduated from White Plains, is receiving the highest honor from his alma mater.
Kilpatrick, who stars on the Brooklyn Nets, announced on Twitter Sunday the school is retiring his #23 jersey.
"Just received word from Coach Spencer Mayfield that my jersey will be the first jersey ever in White Plains High School history to be retired," Kilpatrick tweeted. "God is so good man."
At White Plains, Kilpatrick averaged 28.4 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists, finishing as the second-leading scorer in the school's history. He was a three-time all-state, all-section, all-league, and all-county selection. He later starred at the University of Cincinnati.
