Shelby Rosenberg, a senior forward on Yeshiva University men’s basketball team, made history Saturday night as he netted his 1,000th career point in a game against Purchase College at the Max Stern Athletic Center on YU’s Wilf Campus.
Rosenberg becomes just the 28th player in program history to join the 1,000-point club. He accomplished this feat with just 11 seconds remaining in the contest, as he drew a foul while attempting to shoot a three-point field goal. As a result, he was awarded three free throws. After nailing the first two, Rosenberg converted the third to earn his 1,000th point in his last regular season home game in his collegiate career.
With Purchase (13-12, 11-9) earning the win over Yeshiva (14-11, 12-8), it sets up the No. 4 Maccabees to host the No. 5 Panthers in a rematch—this time in the first round of the Skyline Conference Championships. The game will commence on Tuesday evening beginning at 8:00 p.m. It will be Yeshiva’s first home playoff game since the 1999-00 season.
