SMU will honor the jersey of the Mustang legend during a halftime ceremony on January 12 at Moody Coliseum. Ira Terrell ’76 wore No. 32 during his Mustang basketball career, 1972–76.
His jersey will join those of Mustang basketball legends Jim Krebs ’57, Jon Koncak ’85 and Gene Phillips ’71 in being recognized by SMU. Terrell was inducted into the SMU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2011.
Terrell was the 1976 Southwest Conference Player of the Year and was a three-time All-SWC first team honoree. He is the only Mustang to average a double-double for three seasons. He finished his career as the SMU leader and now ranks second all-time in rebounds (1,077).
