UK hung a banner in honor of that team and that Senior class, but none of those players had their jerseys/numbers retired individually. For the record, many UK fans at the time (and even more now) disagreed with that banner being hung in the first place. It was Pitino's idea at the time, and a poor one, IMO. The process for retiring great UK players jerseys' has been screwed up ever since. I think Pitino just felt the need to hang a banner, since we hadn't hung one since the '84 Final Four.
