D'Angelo Harrison passes Felipe Lopez

1/15/2015

In case you missed it, D'Angelo Harrison reached a major milestone in St. John's 83-70 win over Providence on Wednesday.

Harrison (1,930 points) passed Felipe Lopez (1,927) to become the third-leading scorer in St. John's history -- rarefied air indeed.

He now trails only NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin (2,440) and the late Malik Sealy (2,402), who will probably remain No. 1 and No. 2. Harrison began the season at 1,601 career points, meaning he would have to score 802 points this season to pass Sealy, and 840 to pass Mullin. Harrison's career-high, in terms of points in a single season, is 576, set last year.

Also on Wednesday, Harrison was one of 25 players named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 list. The Wooden Award is one of college basketball's player of the year awards. Harrison was the only Big East player on the list.

Fellow senior Phil Greene IV also reached a milestone Wednesday, becoming the 49th player in St. John's history to score 1,000 career points.

Greene now stands at 1,110, which puts him past Justin Burrell (1,006) into 48th place. Next up is Bill Wennington (1,021).
