Trayce Jackson-Davis moves into third place in Indiana men’s basketball history in rebounds


Senior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis moved into third place all-time in Indiana men’s basketball history in rebounds against Rutgers on Tuesday. 

Jackson-Davis snagged board No. 1,032 with 2:12 remaining in the game, moving him ahead of Kent Benson for third place all-time. 

Benson spent four years with Indiana from 1973 to 1977 and is also No. 10 in program history in scoring with 1,740 points. Benson earned two All-American nods at Indiana and was named the Helms Foundation Player of the Year in the Hoosiers’ 32-0 National Championship season in 1976. 

Jackson-Davis' rebound mark continues his climb up the program’s record books in his fourth season. He scored his 2,000th career point earlier in the game against Rutgers and set the program’s record for blocks in a career against Minnesota on Jan. 25. 

Jackson-Davis now sits 56 rebounds behind Alan Henderson’s program record of 1,091 career rebounds.
