Jordan Adams secures single-season steals record, 1,000-point milestone

A little more than four minutes into the second half at Washington, Jordan Adams got his first steal of the night. His second came 32 seconds later.

That sequence during UCLA’s 91-82 win gave the sophomore 83 steals on the season, good for the school’s single-season steals record. Cameron Dollar set the previous record of 82 in 1997.

Adams reached another milestone earlier en route to a career-high 31 points, scoring seven of UCLA’s first 11 points to reach 1,000 for his career. With a pair of free throws less than four minutes into the game, he became the 50th 1000-point scorer in school history.

Only six Bruins have ever reached the mark sooner than Adam’s 62 games: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (36 games), Bill Walton (49), Don MacLean (52), Gail Goodrich (61), Tracy Murray (61) and Jason Kapono (61).
