BOZEMAN – Montana State Bobcat Tyler Hall added yet another achievement to his growing list of collegiate accolades. Last Tuesday in the first half against North Dakota, Hall scored his 2,000th career point.
More milestones are soon to follow, maybe within the week. The senior guard trails only Larry Chanay on the list of the Bobcats’ all-time leading scorers, by just 20 points.
Hall, a Rock Island, Illinois native, is also just the sixth player in Big Sky Conference men’s basketball history to score 2,000 points. Hall finished the North Dakota with 16 points, bringing his grand total to 2,014.
“It means a lot, just with all the hard work I’ve put in, it kind of shows for itself. Really, I’m worried about wins right now, but that’ll be something I look at after the season,” said Hall.
Hall is also on pace to break the record for most points scored in Big Sky men’s basketball history held by Eastern Washington’s Bogdan Bliznyuk (2,169). But Hall is humble when looking at the records, and sometimes he doesn’t even know he might break them.
“I actually did not know (the Big Sky record). I’ve heard the school one, but I haven’t heard the Big Sky one so that’s new to me,” Hall said.
Just 20 points separate Hall from being the most prolific scorer in Montana State history, and 155 points from the Big Sky Conference’s all-time mark. He will look to chip away at both as the Bobcats travel to face Washington State on Sunday.
