St. Bonaventure point guard Jaylen Adams came into Monday night’s game against Army West Point needing 14 points to reach 1,000 for his career.
Points 993 to 1,002 brought the Bonnies from a six-point deficit to a one-point lead near the end of the first half, the first of a few personal runs a Bona player would go on to secure a 92-83 victory over the Black Knights.
Adams scored 31 points in total, including three three-pointers and 14-of-17 shooting from the foul line, along with dishing out 10 assists. It was the Baltimore native’s fifth career game with at least 30 points.
But SBU’s superstar needed teammates to chip in after the Black Knights came out firing and made eight threes in the first half, and David Andoh and Denzel Gregg were vital in improving the team’s record to 8-3.
