Spring Hill College senior center Nick Brown scored his 4th point of the game and the 1,001st point of his career off a layup with just two minutes left in the first half at conference rival Faulkner University in Montgomery, Ala., on Saturday afternoon.
Brown, who entered the game with 997 points in his 4-year career, scored eight points against the Eagles to become the 33rd member of the SHC men's basketball team's 1,000 Point Club with 1,005 total points scored.
A native of Rota, Spain who played his prep career at Choctaw High School in Florida, Brown has started all 104 games played by Spring Hill since he joined Head Coach Robert Thompson's Badgers in 2007.
Over his time on The Hill, the 6-foot-8 Brown is shooting 55.6% (406-730) from the field and pulling down 6.6 rebounds per game (682) for his career. He has also handed out 43 assists with 43 steals and blocked 55 shots.
He has twice scored his career-high of 25 points with both times coming in his senior campaign - the first time against Voorhees College on November 5, 2010 and the next time at Concordia College-Selma on December 11, 2010. He has tallied a double/double on eight different occasions.
Spring Hill (6-9, 1-2 SSAC West) will face archrival the University of Mobile (9-9, 2-1 SSAC West) on Thursday in a 7:30 p.m. tipoff at the Rams' H. Austill Pharr Gymnasium.
