Another day, another milestone for Drew Timme.

The Gonzaga forward entered Friday’s game needing just 11 points to reach 1,000 in his career and joined the exclusive club with 4:53 remaining in the first half.

Timme backed down two Bellarmine defenders, then pulled out one of his signature low-post moves, reversing and laying the ball off the glass for a layup that gave the Bulldogs a 36-20 lead.

The junior from Texas made his first 3-pointer of the season after an 0-for-4 start and scored 14 points in the first half, going 3 of 6 from the field and 7 of 10 from the free throw line. 

Timme becomes the 47th Gonzaga player to join the 1,000-point club and the first to do it since former teammate Corey Kispert reached the milestone in the 2020-21 season opener. Kispert, who finished his Gonzaga career ranked 12th all time with 1,586 points, entered his senior season with 991 points and scored 23 points in a blowout win over Kansas.

With his production on Friday, Timme moved up to No. 46 on Gonzaga’s all-time scoring last, overtaking Domantas Sabonis and Jeff Condill. With at least 500 points this season, Timme will have a chance to move into the school’s top-15 all time.
