SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - University of Utah officials will honor the legacy of Rick Majerus by hanging his trademark white sweater from the rafters at the basketball arena where he coached 14 seasons and regularly led the Utes to the NCAA tournament.
Utah athletic director Chris Hill says there will be a moment of silence at Utah's next game and players will wear black patches in honor of a man he called a ``basketball savant.' The 64-year-old Majerus died Saturday in Los Angeles while awaiting a heart transplant.
Hill made the announcement Monday on campus.
Majerus had been invited back previously to be inducted into Utah's Hall of Fame. The induction is still planned.
