BOURBONNAIS — From a statistical standpoint, the number 1,000 doesn't surface much in the game of basketball.

What happened at McHie Arena on the campus of Olivet Nazarene University Wednesday night stands as an exception. The Tigers' men's basketball team claimed an 86-79 win over Judson College, and it was the 1,000th victory in the 52-year history of the program.

Despite the direct role he has played in more than 85 percent of those wins, coach Ralph Hodge didn't immediately recognize the accomplishment.
