Frank Mason III became the 21st Kansas Jayhawk to eclipse 1,500 career points during today's win over Texas.
Mason, a national player of the year candidate leading the No. 2 Jayhawks, went for 17 points and seven assists, passing the 1,500 points mark early in the game. He finished the contest with 1,514 career points.
After averaging over 12 points per game during his sophomore and junior seasons, Mason has taken a big leap this year, and sits at 20.3 points per game on the season. He and Devonte' Graham make up what many consider the nation's best backcourt, and he is one of the front runners for college basketball's various player of the year awards.
After losing the season opener to Indiana, Kansas has rolled off 18 straight wins, and is ranked No. 2 in the AP Top 25 and No. 1 in the Coaches Poll.
Mason and the Jayhawks play again on Tuesday, January 24, at No. 7 West Virginia.
