CHESTNUT HILL - Boston College senior forward Corey Raji became the 37th player in school history to score 1,000 points on a put-back under the basket with 5:23 left in the first half of the Eagles' game against Indiana at Conte Forum.
Raji entered Wednesday night's game with 994 career points in 100 games at Boston College. He didn't score his first basket of the game until the 14 minute mark on a straightaway jumper. Raji's second basket, a jumper from the corner of the key, came with 9:18 to play in the half.
After being fouled hard on the way to the basket, Raji had a chance to reach 1,000 career points at the free throw line. However, Raji missed the first but made the second, leaving him one point shy of the milestone.
Boston College leads Indiana 37-27 with 3:20 remaining in the first half.
