Torn ACL doesn’t stop 1,000-point scorer
Question of the Day
SWARTHMORE, PA. (AP) - A Division-III basketball player who suffered a career-ending knee injury last month scored her 1,000th career point on an uncontested layup.
Swarthmore’s Ceylan Bodur was allowed to score the first basket of Wednesday night’s game against Bryn Mawr.
“It was such a special moment,” Bodur said. “I got really emotional and teared up a little bit. I’m grateful the Bryn Mawr coach and my coach talked about this.”
Bodur, a senior from Istanbul, was hurt Jan. 29 stuck on 999 career points. She scored the first four points of the game before she tore the ACL in her right knee midway through the first half.
Swarthmore asked Bryn Mawr for permission for Bodur to become the eighth player in school history to score 1,000 points.
Swarthmore won the tip and the ball was dribbled to Bodur, who waited near the basket. She scored and was congratulated by her senior teammates. They all walked off together after a substitution.
“I finished my career the way I wanted to remember it,” Bodur said.
Bryn Mawr scored its own uncontested layup and the game resumed from there. Swarthmore won, 74-43.
Former UConn star Nykesha Sales set the school’s career scoring record on a similar uncontested layup after she also suffered a season-ending injury.
