Here are some individual scoring statistics from the regular season and the tournament:
Trojan senior to be DeAndre Berry is set to become the school's next 1,000 scorer. He is around 320 points shy of that mark, and considering he averaged almost 17 PPG as a junior, should reach 1,000 points rather easily barring any significant injury.
