He may be a little unorthodox, but Josh Perkins has firmly placed himself among great Gonzaga point guards.

At the 2:39 mark in the first half of Gonzaga’s 94-71 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday, Perkins dropped the ball into the Rui Hachimura in the paint and the junior from Japan did the rest to give Perkins the milestone.

The redshirt senior has averaged 153 assists a season meaning if he hits that total this season, he would find himself third all-time in career assists at GU.

If he were to match his total of 196 from last season, he would actually pass Matt Santangelo to become GU’s all-time assist leader.

He finished with six assists and only one turnover against Texas A&M.
