Josh Perkins hit two 3-pointers in Gonzaga’s 81-67 win over Pepperdine on Saturday to move him into 10th on Gonzaga’s all-time list for career 3s with 188. That number passed Matt Bouldin’s 187, which was achieved from 2007-10.

“To be up there in the top 10, it feels good,” Perkins said. “Hard work is paying off. Proud to see my name up there.”

The junior guard has hit a few other milestones this season, including the 1,000-point mark in an 82-73 win over San Francisco on January 27. He also surpassed 100 steals for his career and hit the 400-assist mark against Portland on January 25.

Silas Melson also checked off a milestone on Saturday. The senior guard surpassed the 900-points mark after hitting all three of his 3-point attempts. His final triple, which came midway through the second half, gave the senior guard 905 for his career.
