With a first-half free throw, junior forward Doug McDermott scored his 11th point of the Bluejays' Valley tournament opener Friday and passed Rodney Buford to become the school's all-time scoring leader with 2,117 points. McDermott ended the game with 2,1129 points.
With his first five points of the game, McDermott passed Bob Harstad (2,110) and the next six helped him overtake Buford (2,116), the last two players ahead of him on the Bluejays' career scoring chart.
It took Buford and Harstad four seasons to amass their point totals. McDermott has notched his in 105 games over three seasons.
