ASU stops number of former All-American Briann in January

Briann January of the Connecticut Sun dodges Skylar Diggins-Smith, Kia Nurse and Brittney Griner during a Phoenix Mercury game at the Footprint Center on September 11, 2021.

The Arizona State basketball program will retire the number 20 jersey of former All-American Briann January, who has gone and excelled in the WNBA.

Festivities will take place on November 12 at Desert Financial Arena when the Sun Devils take on Minnesota.

January will be only the third Sun Devil women’s basketball player to honor her jersey number, 20, along with Ryneldi Becenti (No. 21) and Kym Hampton (No. 32).

“I’m incredibly excited that we can finally honor Briann January’s jersey at Desert Financial Arena,” said ASU head coach Charli Turner Thorne of January, who later joined Turner Thorne’s staff as an assistant coach for two seasons. “Briann is one of the most decorated players to come out of this program, and she no longer deserves this honor. During her time as Sun Devil, she helped elevate our program to the elite and helped score incredible runs in the NCAA tournament .
