The Jan. 29 honoring of basketball great James Cash was a long time coming.
It is fun to have had a part in James Cash's TCU jersey retirement. When I was a student at TCU from 1972-76, my father was friends with then-head basketball coach Johnny Swaim. One day I asked Coach Swaim if he had any old jerseys around that he would let me have.
He ended up cleaning out the closet of over 50 sets of uniforms from three different uniform styles. I hauled them back to my dorm room in three big trash sacks.
