Needing just one point and with Sissonville comfortably ahead, Null knew he was close.
He received a pass with 3:09 left and was wide open for a 3-pointer, but upon going up for the shot, he came back down with the ball in his hands, causing a turnover. On the next possession, he missed a wild circus shot in the lane.
"I had my mom in the stands and everyone telling me I was one point away," Null said. "On the 3-pointer, I was like 'This is going in' but it slipped right out of my hand. It was the worst."
Null was happy to finally achieve the mark on his jumper with just over two minutes to play, sending Sissonville fans and students onto their feet to acknowledge the milestone.
"It feels good to get the 1,000th point," Null said. "It's a weight lifted off my shoulders. It's sweet, especially at home. I love playing here. We have the best fans. They always support us no matter what our record is."
Null only scored three points his freshman season and made the switch from shooting guard his sophomore and junior year to point guard this year.
Stowers also reached the milestone in front of the home crowd.
"It meant a lot to me and made my season," Stowers said. "Well, other than the postseason. It was a great atmosphere and you could tell the crowd got into it. It's great. I'm glad Zach got to get his at home, too, and not on the road."
"It's something to remember," Null added. "It's one of the best feelings sharing it with Trent. We are best friends. We grew up playing together. It's a great feeling."
