ortable in the mask since he was injure

STANFORD, Calif. -- The Denver Broncos retired John Elways No. 7 jersey four months after he announced his playing career was over in 1999. The following year, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. And the Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed the quarterback in his first year of eligibility. The one honour Elway never thought would come will take place Thursday night. Thirty years after he graduated from the university, Stanford will finally retire Elways iconic No. 7 jersey at halftime of its game against second-ranked Oregon. Hell join Jim Plunkett (No. 16) and Ernie Nevers (No. 1) as the only players whose jerseys have been enshrined by the program. "Realizing the history, it wasnt something that happened a whole lot at Stanford. And thats why it was a great surprise and thrill to learn when coach David Shaw called me a few months ago and told me that they were going to retire the number," Elway said by phone this week. "I think that makes it so much more special now than if theyd done it earlier." Stanford always has been selective with bestowing such an honour. Nevers jersey was retired in 1970, some 45 years after he led Stanford to a Rose Bowl victory over Notre Dame. Nearly 21 years after he became Stanfords only Heisman Trophy winner, Plunketts jersey was retired by the school in November 1991. Nobody at Stanford really knows why it took so long for Elways jersey to be retired. The Cardinal quarterback was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1983 NFL draft and one of the most celebrated athletes in school history. Shaw said he started asking the question when he was a wide receiver at Stanford in the early 1990s and asked again after he was promoted from offensive co-ordinator to head coach in January 2011. In the past year, after Bernard Muir took over as athletic director, those conversations escalated. "I remember thinking about when I was here. I came in, one of my friends, (quarterback) Mark Butterfield, was wearing No. 7. I said, Why the hell are you wearing No. 7?" Shaw said. "Mark had a great senior year and was great and I just kept thinking, Nobody should be wearing No. 7. "And I came back as a coach, Toby (Gerhart), great player, Why is he wearing No. 7? The last couple years I kept going around and I talked to some of our historian people, I talked to Bernard and I said, We have to do this. He was completely on board. And everybody I talked to said, Yeah, why havent we done that? There was no malicious intent. I think it was just one of those things." Shaw said he has spoken to Muir about developing a standard for future numbers to be retired. Muir declined to discuss what the process might entail. Wide receiver Ty Montgomery and defensive end Aziz Shittu both wear No. 7 currently. Whenever they graduate or if they decide to switch numbers next season, nobody at Stanford will ever wear No. 7 again. The irony is that Elway, now the executive vice-president of the Broncos, never intended to wear that number. He wore No. 11 in high school and, in a story he has told many times over the years, a defensive back at Stanford already had taken that number there. Elway said he chose No. 7 over No. 12, which were the only numbers available, "because few athletes wore the number." Now quarterbacks at every level, including Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wear that number in Elways honour. Elway threw for 9,349 yards and 77 touchdowns while completing 62 per cent of his passes at Stanford. He held nearly every major passing record -- most of them since shattered by Andrew Luck -- when he left school. Elway still owns the single-game record with six touchdown passes in a 54-13 win against Oregon State on Nov. 1, 1980. Elway was the Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year in 1980 and 1982, when he also was a consensus All-American. After the Cardinal lost at rival California on the infamous lateral play in his final collegiate game, Elway finished second to Herschel Walker in the 1982 Heisman Trophy voting. "We had the highs and lows when I was at Stanford," said Elway, who led the Broncos to five Super Bowl appearances and two titles during his NFL career. Stanford footballs recent renaissance, which includes three straight BCS bowl appearances, surely helped bring more attention to Elways cause -- and it could help others soon. Stanford greats such as Bobby Garrett, Frankie Albert, John Brodie, Gerhart and Luck are among the top candidates to have their jerseys retired. Shaw said he already has spoken with Gerhart about entering the schools hall of fame, though he wouldnt commit to a similar jersey retirement. He has not allowed any player to wear Lucks No. 12 since the quarterback graduated after the 2011 season. "I dont know what their plans are," Elway said. "Maybe this one opens the door for others to be retired."

It paid off big time Tuesday night. Miller scored a season-high 19 points, and made a wide-open 3-pointer with 45.9 seconds remaining to help carry the Grizzlies to a 98-93 victory over the New York Knicks. "Thats what we got him for," said Memphis guard Mike Conley, who led the Grizzlies with 22 points. "Hes going to win us four or five, six games throughout the year himself, just from making big plays down the stretch. Tonight was one of those games." Miller shot 7 for 11 from the field, including 5 of 7 on 3-pointers, to help Memphis win its third straight. Millers last-minute 3 gave the Grizzlies the lead for good as they scored the games final seven points. "Ive been in a lot of these situations, and I was able to make some shots when we needed them," Miller said. For the Knicks, Millers late 3-pointer was frustrating not only from the sense that it caused New York to squander a comeback from 18 points down in the first half, but also cost them a key game as the Knicks fight for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. New Yorks Carmelo Anthony, who finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds, couldnt believe his team failed to close the game, particularly when seeing Miller uncontested for the 3-pointer that put Memphis ahead. "All I saw was Mike Miller wide open and the ball was going," Anthony said before adding: "Once the ball was up, my thing was to just hope that he didnt keep his follow through up or something and the ball was going to miss. But he was wide open." Zach Randolph scored 13 points for Memphis, Nick Calathes had 11 and Tayshaun Prince added 10. Conley, who had missed the seven games before the All-Star break with a sprained right ankle, couldnt find a rhythm after the layoff and struggled in the first half before scoring 16 in the second half, including getting to the free throw line 10 times after intermission. "I was real upset and frustrated at times," Conley said of the first half. &quoot;I was missing shots I normally make.dddddddddddd. I missed a couple of free throws, but I was happy with the way my body held up. "I started getting a little bit of a rhythm (in the second half). I was able to get to the free throw line and able to get to my floater. I got in a comfort zone." Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 23 points to lead the Knicks, including 14 during the Knicks fourth-quarter push. Amare Stoudemire added 12 points. "We played great in the second half," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "We fought back. We were 18 down and kept chipping away." Memphis saw its 50-37 halftime lead evaporate in the third quarter when New York outscored the Grizzlies 27-16. Much of that came as New York turned up the defensive pressure, allowing Memphis to hit only three of its first 11 shots in the third. Meanwhile, the Knicks made six of their first eight shots in the quarter. The Knicks werent able to maintain that pace, finishing 10 for 21 in the period to pull to 66-64 entering the fourth. When Stoudemire scored the opening basket of the fourth, the teams were tied at 66. The Knicks eventually held a seven-point advantage in the fourth. However, the Grizzlies had the final run. Hardaways 3-pointer with 1:04 left gave New York a 93-91 lead. Miller answered with the open 3-pointer to take the lead back for Memphis, then Conley and Courtney Lee each hit two free throws in the final 21.4 seconds for the final margin. "Its very disappointing," Anthony said. "To fight our way back and be up 5, 6 with a couple of minutes on the clock, and give it away is very disappointing. But we have to put this one behind us." NOTES: The Grizzlies were 4-3 while Conley sat out with a sprained ankle. ... The Knicks J.R. Smith was still in the plastic mask from his fractured cheekbone. He has been uncomfortable in the mask since he was injured Feb. 9 at Oklahoma City. ... Millers previous season high was 16 against Golden State on Dec. 7. .The game marked only the fourth time this season New York has lost while holding the opponent under 100 points.
