Trevor Cooney surpasses 1,000 career points

In the first half of Wednesday's victory over Charlotte, Trevor Cooney surpassed 1,000 points for his career.

Trevor Cooney has had a memorable career at Syracuse. He's played in a Final Four, the Big East Tournament and the ACC Tournament. He won the Maui Invitational two years ago, and is now playing in the Battle 4 Atlantis. He's been in the middle, although not at fault, of an NCAA investigation. He was also the starting shooting guard on a Syracuse team that started 25-0 two years ago. 

His career record at Syracuse is 80-29 (.734). 

Those are all team accomplishments.

Today, he accomplished something that only 58 others in program history have: 1,000 career points. In the first half of Wednesday's victory over Charlotte, Cooney hit a 3-pointer, giving him 1,002 points in his career. 

After the game, he kept it short and sweet when asked about the accomplishment, "It's an honor to be apart of the list, especially at a program like Syracuse."

Rakeem Christmas, who now plays in the Indiana Pacers organization, reached the 1,000 career points plateau last season. He congratulated Trevor during the game:

Cooney finished the game with a season-high 19 points on 8-of-17 shooting as the Orange defeated the 49ers, 83-70.
