The 1,000 point milestone: AIAW players dominate top of quickest to 1K list

Several players have hit the 1,000 point career mark this season. From Southern Methodist University senior forward Delisha Wills’ early season feat in November to Baylor sophomore center Brittney Griner’s accomplishment on January 12.

While Griner’s feat of reaching the milestone in just 51 games is impressive, she is not in the in the top ten or even top 20 list of players to reach 1,000 points the quickest. The leaders in this statistical category belong to a few old school ballers, including the mother of Seattle Storm superstar, Lauren Jackson.

The NCAA list includes pre-NCAA players who were on AIAW (Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women) teams, the leading organization for women’s college basketball from 1971 until the early 1980s. The first player to hit the mark the quickest in the post-AIAW era is Latasha Byears. She played at DePaul in the mid-1990s.

  • Interestingly, Delaware's Elena Delle Donne has scored 956 points in her 36 college games. Assuming she regains her health, she should easily crack the top 10 list. Had she not gotten hurt, she may have tied for that No. 1 spot as in one game this season she played only six minutes without scoring before shutting it down due to her injury.
