There have been a plethora of tremendous Chico State men's basketball players over the year. The likes of George Maderos, Ken Piercy, Tim Taylor, Scott Land, Justin Argenal, Jay Flores, and on and on and on.
But, current Chico State point guard Jalen McFerren is in a class by himself.
On Saturday night, in a 74-36 victory over Humboldt State, McFerren scored 19 points to eclipse 1,000 in his collegiate career.
By reaching the milestone, he become the first Wildcat with career totals of 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 250 assists and 100 steals.
"To do something that's never been done before is cool, I've never really thought about it. I'm not a player that plays for stats, I always play to win and it's been great, for sure. I'm trying to cherish the moment, but I'm kind of happy it's over with. Now, we can just focus on the team, continue to win games and try to push toward something bigger," said McFerren.
Chico State (12-5 and 9-4 in the CCAA) is back in action Friday at 7:30 on the road against Cal State Dominguez Hills.
