Northwest University's Michael Greene (Squalicum) reached the 1,000 career points plateau last month.
Greene, who is only a junior, is approaching NU Hall of Famer Dennis LaMance, who stands fourth in school history with 1,278 points from 1968-71.
"We knew when we recruited Michael out of high school he would meet all of our expectations," NU coach John Van Dyke said in a school release, "but Michael continues to exceed them as he continues to improve. He is a well-rounded student-athlete who is also an academic all-American in the classroom as well and such a great role model for the team."
Greene has recorded 14 double-doubles this season, as his 18 points in a Feb. 23 loss to Warner Pacific in the Cascade Collegiate Conference semifinals gave him 1,084 for his career, and his 10 rebounds gave him 593.
The Eagles received an invitation to the NAIA Division II National Championships, which will be held in Point Lookout, Mo. Northwest (22-10), which finished ranked No. 23, will face Dordt College on Thursday, March 7, in the first round of the 32-team, single elimination tournament, which wraps up with a 6 p.m. championship game on March 12 that will be shown on CBS Sports Network.
