Landrum has jersey retired by La Vega

BELLMEAD, Texas (KWTX) One of the Baylor Lady Bears' national champions from the 2018-19 season can now look at May 22 on the calendar and remember that that day will be known as Calveion "Juicy" Landrum Day in Bellmead.

Landrum, who helped La Vega High School to three-consecutive state championship appearances from 2014-16, had her No. 5 jersey retired by the school Wednesday.

"I didn't think this day would actually come," Landrum said. "I'm happy that it did. Just to know someday, if I come back and coach, my number won't ever be worn."

"It's just a special honor to be able to go back to your alma mater and coach there," said Baylor women's basketball associate head coach Bill Brock. "Don't doubt it, now. Juicy has set some high goals for herself. The next thing she wants to do is have a great senior year and see if she can get us back to the Final Four."

Landrum's future is far from decided, but the coaching route is one she's very interested in taking.

The 2016 La Vega graduate averaged nearly 23 points and four steals per game during her senior season for the Lady Pirates.
