MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – With his 27-point performance on Saturday, West Virginia guard Malik Curry eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in his Division-I basketball career.

Curry needed 26 points heading into the Texas game, but came out with 27.

The Delaware native scored 743 points from 2019-21 playing for the Monarchs. In his fifth-year in the NCAA, Curry has scored 258 points in 28 games with West Virginia.
