Sabre Proctor entered yesterday's game against New Hampshire two points shy of 1,000 for her career at Stony Brook.
It didn't take her long to reach the milestone. The senior hit two free throws just over 31/2 minutes into Stony Brook's 60-52 loss, becoming the 14th player in school history to reach the milestone and only the seventh to do it in three seasons (she also scored 139 points for North Carolina A&T in the 2010-11 season).
"She got it at the free-throw line, and she is an excellent free-throw shooter [78.4 percent career, 82.2 percent this season]," coach Caroline McCombs said. "I'm proud of her for her career and that she reached this milestone in three years at Stony Brook."
Proctor, who had seven rebounds, scored six points Saturday to reach 1,004 at Stony Brook and 1,143 for her career. In her three years at SBU, she has averaged 10.9, 14.4 and now 16.4 points this season.
"I thought it was great to do it on our home court in front of our fans," Proctor said. "It's a great accomplishment, and I give credit to my coaches, teammates and family."
Brittany Snow had 16 points and Kori Bayne-Walker and Christa Scongamiglio added 11 points each for SBU (7-7, 0-1 America East) against UNH (9-4, 1-0), which shot 48.1 percent and had only six turnovers.
