Vermont athletics announced on Wednesday that the jerseys of Taylor Coppenrath No. 22 and T.J. Sorrentine No. 11 will be retired in the men’s basketball program.
Both graduated in 2005 and helped Vermont earn its first ever NCAA Tournament win over No. 4 Syracuse in the 2005 Tournament.
Coppenrath and Sorrentine were both inducted into the UVM athletic hall of fame a decade later.
Coppenrath led Vermont to three straight America East Conference titles during his four-year career. He ranks second among the Catamounts all-time leading scorers with 2,442 career points.
Sorrentine tallied in multiple accolades, America East Rookie of the Year, America East Player of the Year, and a three-time America East All-Conference First Team player. Sorrentine sits third among the leading scorers at Vermont with 2,013 points and graduated second with 548 assists and third with 164 steals.
The two UVM legends will be honored on Oct. 26th as Vermont hosts Brown University for an exhibition game at Patrick Gym at 7 p.m. Sorrentine is the associate head coach of the Brown men’s basketball team.
