Riewer Reaches 1,000 Points At MSUM

By Kyle Gylsen - Moorhead

On a night when he reached a scoring milestone, Minnesota State Moorhead senior Jordan Riewer also dished out a career-high nine assists.

Riewer, a Staples-Motley graduate, netted 16 points Friday to surpass 1,000 for his career, while directing an offense that shot 69 percent from the field Friday night. That red-hot shooting vaulted the No. 14-ranked Dragons to a 106-81 victory against Upper Iowa in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference men’s basketball at Alex Nemzek Fieldhouse.

“That is a perfect way for him to reach his 1,000th point because he’s always been a pass-first guy,” said Dragons head coach Chad Walthall, another former Cardinal, referring to Riewer’s assist total. “He’s scored 1,000 doing it very unselfishly throughout his career and that says a lot.”

Riewer had 995 points entering the game. The 6-foot-2 point guard reached the scoring milestone on a drive to the basket with 11 minutes, 55 seconds remaining in the first half. That basket gave him exactly 1,000 points and the Dragons a 22-19 lead.

“You look back at all the guys you’ve played with that helped get you to a point and make you better as a player,” Riewer said. “It’s nice, but like my dad always kids me, you guys play 31 games (in the regular season) now.”
