PC Could Join Marquette & UNC With Four 1,000 Point Scorers

Once Sharaud Curry & Randall Hanke get to 1,000 points this season, PC will join Marquette and North Carolina as the only schools with four 1,000 point scorers on their squad, via ProJo Sports:

Providence College’s 1,000-point Club is on the verge of growing once again.

Senior center Randall Hanke did not score Wednesday night and is stuck at 999 points but he’ll eventually eclipse the threshold this season. He’ll be the 41st player in school history to score 1,000 or more points and the third this season.

Both Weyinmi Efejuku (1,257) and Geoff McDermott (1,040) cracked the milestone earlier this season. They joined guard Jeff Xavier who has 1,315 points to his credit in a four-year career that’s been split between Manhattan College and PC.

Hanke has continued the torrid shooting pace that’s made him the highest percentage scorer in PC history. He set the school record for field goal percentage (.722) back in his freshman season and came into Wednesday night with a career mark of (.680), also the best in school history and well ahead of Herbert Hill’s .614.

PC has never had a team with four 1,000-point scorers at the same time and it’s only a matter of time before a fifth player joins the club. Sharaud Curry now has 976 career points after scoring 25 last night.

The only other college teams with four 1,000-point scorers on the current roster are Marquette with its quartet of Dominic James, Jerel McNeal, Wesley Matthews and Lazar Hayward and North Carolina, which boasts big scorers in Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington, Ty Lawson and Danny Green. Hansbrough (2,572 career points) is on target to become the all-time leading scorer in the ACC.
Quite a feat for the Friars, who are definitely a quality offensive team, now only if they could get their defense in gear after giving up 93 points or more in 4 straight games.
