Jonesing for points

I wrote a note today about Bobby Jones needing 12 points to become the 30th Husky in school history to hit 1,000 for his career.
The milestone speaks to the massive progression in Jones’ game since he came to UW as Lorenzo Romar’s first recruit in 2002, billed then as a defense-and-rebounding type of guy.
Asked Tuesday about hitting 1,000, however, Jones said he didn’t know he was that close. “I guess that will be pretty big,” he said. “I can look back on it and tell my kids and grandkids someday.”
But Jones also downplayed it, saying that he thinks anyone who spends four years playing for a college team ought to be able to score 1,000 points.
Told that a lot of guys play four years and don’t score 1,000, Jones laughed. “And you see where they are at, just chilling out,” he said.
The list of 1,000-point scorers includes many obvious names, beginning with Chris Welp, Bob Houbregs and Todd MacCulloch at the top with Dion Brown, Gordy Harris and Bryant Boston at the bottom.
Brandon Roy will get to 1,000 soon, as well. He needs 60 points.
But there were some pretty good players who didn’t do it:
Chester Dorsey, obviously more of an assists guy;
Curtis Allen scored 971 points;
Doug Wrenn scored 880 points in just two years;
Jamie Booker, 866 in four years.
Brad Watson, late-bloomer but was big scorer on the 1983 team.
Those are just guys off the top of my head. Let me know if you have someone in mind and I can tell you if they reached that milestone or not.
INJURY UPDATE
Pretty much the same as it has been other than Jones, who hurt his ankle against New Mexico but should be fine for Eastern Washington.
Harvey Perry is status quo and Mike Jensen is due back for the Lehigh game Dec. 23. He says he’s ready to play now but the doctors want to be cautious.
