Shabazz reaches 2,000 points in App State loss

MONROE, La. – Ronshad Shabazz etched his name further in the record books by scoring his 2,000th career point, but Appalachian State dropped a 81-75 basketball decision at UL-Monroe on Thursday night.

Shabazz entered the contest needing 40 points to reach 2,000 for his career. Backed by a 24-point first half and a 23-point second half, he drained a three-pointer at the 2:26 mark of the second half to join Donald Sims as the only two players in program history to reach 2,000 points.

In addition, he went over 500 points for the season and is the first player in program history to score 500 or more points in three seasons.

Shabazz finished the game with a career-high 47 points, on a career-best 17 made field goals and a career-high 10 three-pointers. His 47-point performance marks the 11th time in program history a Mountaineer has eclipsed the 40-point mark in a game and ranks as the fourth highest scoring output in single game program history.

It was also the eighth highest scoring output across Division I this season. In addition, Shabazz’ 10 three-pointers made ties the school record set by Nate Cranford in the 2007 season
