Hollins and Williams Reach 1,000 Career Points
PORTLAND, Ore. - The Lewis & Clark men's and women's basketball programs had two players score their 1,000th career points last weekend. Junior James Hollins knocked down his 1,000th career point on Tuesday in the Pios 75-56 win over George Fox, while junior Kristina Williams scored hers on Friday in the women's 57-46 win over Linfield.
Hollins becomes the 11th player to score 1,000+ points for the men's program. The 6-3 junior is the fastest player in team history to score his 1,000+ points, scoring 1,025 points in 74 games. Against George Fox, Hollins ended his night with a double-double, scoring 17 points and pulling down 12 boards. The last Pioneer to score 1,000 points for the Pioneers was Colin Oriard who knocked down 1,587 points during his four-year (1999-2003) career.
During the course of the Linfield game, Williams scored her 1000th career point becoming the ninth player in program history to score 1000+ points. The El Dorado Hills, Calif. native becomes the fastest player to reach the milestone, scoring her 1,007 points in 67 games. Williams scored in double figures for the 11th time this season against the Wildcats, knocking down a team-high 14 points. The last time the women's program had a player score 1,000+ points was in 2007 when both Crystal Castle (2004-2007) and Alison Farr (2004-2007) reached the milestone. Castle ended her career with 1,287 points, while Farr finished with 1,129.
Both teams return to action on Friday, Jan. 13 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. when they travel to take on Pacific Lutheran in Northwest Conference action.
