Suffolk University senior Colin Halpin scored his 1,000th career point as a member of the men's basketball team Saturday afternoon, becoming the 27th player in the 65-year history of the program to reach the quadruple-digit benchmark.

His 1,000th point came with 9:29 remaining in the second half, when senior Chris Torres of Brockton fed Halpin down low for a wide open lay-in.

Halpin has scored 103 points over the first six games of the season and has tallied 31 rebounds. 

The Rams improved to 4-3 overall with a 100-76 win over New England College on Monday night.
