On January 10, 2017 Keion Adams ’19 became the first male in Wilson College Men’s Basketball to hit 1,000 career points as they defeated Penn State Berks with the final score of 81-62.
In regards to this success, Adams stated, “The feeling is amazing! I already knew that coming to Wilson I would be making history by being on the Men’s team, but being the first male to hit 1,000 points makes it that much sweeter.”
Not only did Adams score his 1,000 points, he did it as a junior. On average, it takes all four years to score your 1,000 points but Adams had other intention coming into this season.
Adams mentioned, “I knew coming into this season that I would most likely hit my 1,000-point mark, but I was more focused on becoming a playoff team with my teammates by my side. Knowing that I already scored 1,000 points as a junior is huge but I know that I still have another season to do more work, so I am looking forward to what next year has in store for me.”
Adams then continued by saying, “I was able to accomplish this through the hard work me, my teammates, and coaches put into what we do every season. My coaches and teammates make me a better player and hopefully I do the same for them. My parents have also given me the support, motivation, and drive that makes me want to keep playing the game I love and thrive in it.”
Wilson Men’s Basketball team is 15-6 overall and 9-3 in the conference. Adams currently leads the team in scoring, averaging 15.8 points a game.
Keion and his team will face up against St. Elizabeth Feb. 17 at 12 p.m. in Morristown, New Jersey in their last conference match before they head to the playoffs.
