Liberty's Brown, ODU's Cook close in on milestones

Liberty's Devon Brown

Old Dominion senior Jackie Cook went into Thursday night's game against William and Mary just 10 points shy of becoming the 30th Lady Monarch to reach 1,000 for her career. Also on Thursday at UNC Asheville, Liberty's Devon Brown (1,869 points) needs just 15 points to pass Megan Frazee for second place on the Lady Flames' all-time list. And on Friday against North Carolina, Virginia Tech junior Monet Tellier will need 26 points to join the Hokies' 1,000-point club.

Here's a timeline of some of the other notable milestones reached this season:

Jackie Cook
Nov. 9 - George Mason senior Amber Easter began the season needing just 10 points to reach 1,000. She racked up 12 in the Patriots' opener at Oakland to become the 15th player in program history to reach the milestone.

Nov. 25 - William and Mary senior Janine Aldridge cracked the 1,000-point barrier in a game at the University of Texas-San Antonio. She currently has 1,253 career points.

Dec. 8 - Two weeks after teammate Aldridge reached 1,000 points, William and Mary senior Emily Correal reached four figures herself in a game against Navy. She's now at 1,272 points.

Dec. 20 - Longwood senior Chelsea Coward cracked the 1,000-point barrier during a 12-point performance at Arizona. She became the 19th Lancer to reach this milestone and the first in the program's Division I era.

Jan. 24 - Virginia junior Ataira Franklin nailed a 3-pointer against Boston College to become the 29th member of the Cavaliers' 1,000-point club.

Feb. 7 - Longwood senior Crystal Smith becomes the 20th Lancer all-time and second this season (Coward) to reach 1,000 career points.

Feb. 7 - Radford senior Ashley Buckhannon became the 20th member of the Highlanders' 1,000-point club - and second currently in uniform - with a 14-point effort against Campbell. Teammate Da'Naria Erwin Spencer has 1,321 career points.

Feb. 10 - JMU senior Tarik Hislop breaks Tamera Young's program record by making her 126th career start as the Dukes take on Delaware. Hislop went into Thursday's game against Towson having appeared in 129 games, one short of Courtney Hamner's program record for appearances. Not surprisingly, Hislop crashed through the 1,000-point barrier a long time ago and currently has 1,678 points, fourth on the school's all-time list.
