PHOENIX, Ariz. – Senior point guard Josh Perkins continues to scale Gonzaga’s record book and he climbed past another Zags’ great Sunday against Tennessee.

Perkins’ second assist, which came on a feed to Corey Kispert for a 3-pointer with 13:53 remaining in the first half, moved him past John Stockton into fourth place on the program’s all-time list, which reads like a who’s who of Gonzaga point guards. Stockton had 554 career assists.

Perkins finished with nine assists, giving him 562 in his career. He recently passed Kevin Pangos, who was in fifth place.

Matt Santangelo holds the top spot with 668 assists, followed by Blake Stepp’s 640 and Jeremy Pargo’s 589.

UPDATED: 7:06 p.m.

Senior point guard Josh Perkins could end his Gonzaga career as the program’s all-time assists leader, but he doesn’t dish much on his health. In the second half of Saturday’s 89-66 win over Portland, Perkins took a couple of awkward steps after splitting two defenders while driving into the lane. He fell to the court and needed some extra time before standing up. He appeared to be hobbling a bit but stayed in the game.
