Medeiros Reaches 1,000-Point Plateau

STANDISH, ME – Senior guard Matthew Medeiros (Westport, Mass.) became the 36th player in Saint Joseph's College men's basketball history to surpass the 1,000-point plateau in a 96-87 double-overtime victory over Rivier University on Saturday afternoon.

Medeiros entered the conference contest needing 12 points to reach the career milestone and hit the mark on the nose with 7:20 remaining in the first half when he drained his fourth three-pointer of the contest. The senior sharpshooter netted a game-high 29 points with six assists and went 7-10 from three-point distance to help the Monks notch their third-consecutive Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) victory. Medeiros tied his career-highs in points, field goals made (9) and three-point field goals made (7) and also set a new personal-best in assists in the win over the Raiders.

The second-year starter now has 1,017 points over 87 career contests – a total that includes 39 starts. Medeiros currently ranks third in team history in three-pointers attempted (485), fourth in three-pointers made (196) and sixth in three-point efficiency (40.4%).

Off to an outstanding start to his final collegiate campaign, Medeiros is currently averaging 16.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per contest and leads the GNAC in three-pointers made (32). He also ranks fourth in the conference in three-point accuracy (49.2%), sixth in points (132) and minutes per game (35.4) and seventh in free-throw percentage (84.2%).

He is the eighth player to reach the four-digit milestone during the tenure of Head Coach Rob Sanicola '99, who is currently in his 11th year at the helm for the Monks. Medeiros joins former teammates Tyler Kelley '11, Zach O'Brien '12 and Chris Petzy '12 on the short list of players who have reached the prestigious plateau in the 44-year history of the Saint Joseph's men's basketball program.

The contest versus Rivier was the final game of the 2013 calendar year for Saint Joseph's, as the Monks do not play again until January 4th when the team plays the first of two tilts in the Catholic University Classic Tournament in Washington, D.C.
