Myles Dread notched yet another peg in his legacy at Penn State after eclipsing the 1,000-point plateau in the first half against Michigan Monday night.
Dread drained this shot to hit the milestone which comes in his home state of Michigan.
Since arriving in Happy Valley, Dread has done nothing but score for the Nittany Lions. He scored 264 points during his freshman campaign before scoring 266, 169 and 193 points, respectively, in each of the next three seasons.
Dread has been a steady hand for head coach Micah Shrewsberry averaging 23 minutes per game entering Monday night’s contest against the Wolverines. And while his prowess on the court is important, it’s as a leader that truly makes Dread a special player, having served as a captain now for two seasons in a row.
While there’s still a lot of time left for more Dread magic this season, what’s for certain is that he will forever be linked to the Penn State program after hitting this milestone. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving player, one who stayed through a coaching change and has been rewarded for it.
