OXFORD – It takes a lot of minutes on the court to score 1,000 points in a collegiate career, so one can’t blame Terrance Henry for feeling like he’s been around a while.
“I feel like an old head now,” he joked after his Ole Miss Rebels defeated LSU 72-48.
With two free throws late in the first half, Henry became the 33rd player in school history to record 1,000 points in a career. He’s also one of two players to have 1,000 points and over 100 blocks, joining former Rebel Rahim Lockhart.
“I was happy to get to 1,000 points, but I was even more happy to get the win,” Henry said.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy credited Henry’s work ethic as a key part in reaching this milestone.
“I’m not sure in four years he’s ever missed a practice,” Kennedy said. “He puts the time in and it’s just a matter of him going and delivering for us like we need him to do.”
