It was a simple layup for Jason Washburn, one that came off an assist from Jordan Loveridge early in Utah's 72-61 win over Oregon State at the Huntsman Center.
But that simple shot for Washburn on Thursday night meant so much more.
The senior center is now the 35th member of the 1,000-point club, a milestone shared by some of the great players in school history. Washburn's career and his journey don't need validation. He stuck with the program through some of its darkest days when he didn't have to. But now, he's accomplished something that won't ever be erased from the Utah record books.
