McKinley Wright IV became the first Colorado Buffalo, and first player from the Pac-12, to surpass career totals of 1,600 points, 600 rebounds and 600 assists.
Wright accomplished the feat against the California Golden Bears on Saturday, securing his 600th rebound late in the second half. As of this publishing, the senior guard is up to 1,687 points and 626 assists, in addition to those 600 rebounds.
Since the 1985-86 season, only nine other players have joined the club:
Jon Elmore, Marshall
Nate Wolters, South Dakota State
Greivis Vasquez, Maryland
DeAndre Kane, Marshall/Iowa State
D.J. Cooper, Ohio
Kyle Collingsworth, BYU
Andre Miller, Utah
Denzel Valentine, Michigan State
Tarkus Ferguson, Illinois-Chicago
Of note, only Toronto Raptors legend Greivis Vasquez played his entire career in major conference basketball. Andre Miller could count as the first Pac-12 player, but Utah was still playing in the WAC when the Professor led them to the NCAA Championship.
McKinley Wright is a truly special talent and we are so, so lucky to have here in Boulder.
