The Campaign to Retire Jim Washington sign now

Jim Washington was an all-time great during his years playing at Villanova.

Jumpin Jimmy Washington played for Villanova during Jack Krafts tenure as coach before entering the NBA in the 1965 draft. Washington was a 6′6″ forward who collected 1194 career rebounds at Villanova, making him second all-time in that category at Villanova. He averaged about 14 rebounds per game and scored 1146 points in his college career, averaging 13.5 per game.

Washington also holds Villanova records for the highest single season rebounding average (15.8 in 28 games). He is tied with Easy Ed Pinckney and Howard Porter for the 9th-best single-game rebound total in team history (22 rebounds vs. LaSalle in 1963). He holds two of the top-10 highest single-season rebounding performances (as well as #11) in school history, the only player to match or beat that was Howard Porter. His 1964 NCAA tournament featured the best rebounding performance in tournament history for Villanova when he pulled down 19 rebounds against Providence.

Villanova has retired 18 Jerseys to this date, but Jim Washington is not among them. It is time that Jim Washington's Alma Mater recognized his achievements and hung his jersey above the student section in the Pavilion.
