Drew Timme hit a massive college basketball milestone tonight against the Santa Clara Broncos Thursday night when he hit 2000 career points. The senior big man was eight points shy of the major milestone entering the game on Thursday night. Last offseason the Gonzaga Bulldogs big man decided to forgo entering the 2022 NBA Draft to return to college basketball for his fourth season. The all-time leader in Gonzaga Bulldogs’ points is Frank Burgess who recorded 2,196 points in his career. He played from the 1958-59 season to the 1960-61 season. Timme is now top-three all-time on the Gonzaga list with a good shot at passing Burgess for number one this season.

— NCAA March Madness (@MarchMadnessMBB) February 3, 2023
This season with the Gonzaga Bulldogs Drew Timme is averaging 21.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and one block per game. He has paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 60.8 percent and a free-throw percentage of 59.2 percent. The goal for Timme and the Gonzaga Bulldogs is to win a National Championship for the program. This year’s roster may not be as star-studded as past seasons but with Timme on the roster ruling them out during March Madness wouldn’t be ideal. Congratulations to Timme on this massive college basketball milestone.
