The ultimate honor for greatness is still to have a number retired. Only three numbers in football and two in men\u2019s basketball have been retired.\r\n\r\n<strong>Women\u2019s basketball<\/strong>\r\n\r\nWVU will host Missouri on Dec. 2 as part of the Big 12\/SEC Challenge.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers went 24-8 overall and 11-5 in league action to finish third in the SEC. They made their third straight NCAA tournament appearance.\r\n\r\nGame time and coverage will be announced.
