1,000-point club redux

All right, this is what I should have done in the first place when I mentioned that Bobby Jones is 12 points away from reaching 1,000-career points.
With some help from the UW sports information department, here’s the complete list of 1,000-point scorers at UW with Jones and Brandon Roy at the bottom.

Brandon Roy    2003-present    78    12.1     940

And for the guy who had the question about Bob Fronk, he just missed it, scoring 965 points from 1978-81.
The Pac-10, meanwhile, uses 1,500 career points as its cutoff in its record book. Entering this year, there were 80 players on that list with Louie Nelson being the last name. The UW has seven players on that list. I counted 15 from UCLA including four of the top eight – leader Don MacLean (2,608), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (fourth with 2,319), and Reggie Miller and Jason Kapono tied at seventh (2,095).
And is it just me or does it seem like MacLean – while a nice player – is a little out of place as the all-time leading scorer in Pac-10 history? But obviously, Kareem and some guys from the earlier era could only play three years due to freshman ineligibility. And anybody really good now leaves after just a year or two. So MacLean could stay there a long time. He averaged 20.5 points per game throughout his four years at UCLA.
ODDS AND ENDS
The Huskies began practice at 7 a.m. Thursday to allow players a little extra rest before playing Friday and also because some players had to take finals in the afternoon.
Bobby Jones, bothered by a sprained ankle, didn’t practice Tuesday but did a little bit of work Wednesday and Thursday. He is still expected to start but may not play as much as usual. Obviously, the best-case scenario there is another rout which allows him as much rest as he needs.
Asked this week what the Huskies need to work on, Lorenzo Romar mostly mentioned pretty subtle things such as better spacing on offense, rotating more efficiently on defense, boxing out on rebounds, etc.
That he didn’t say “we need to find a new point guard” or something I think speaks to the fact that they believe the team may really be as good as it is being ranked right now.
Here’s an update on Will Conroy – he scored eight points with seven assists for the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Developmental League in their most recent game against the Roanoke Dazzle. He’s averaging 9.4 points and 2.8 assists for Tulsa, which is 4-5.
