Senior guard A'dia Mathies joined four other Kentucky basketball players -- men's and women's -- to score 2,000 career points.

Mathies was 16 points away from that milestone entering UK's Sweet 16 game against Delaware -- and then scored exactly 16 in the Cats' 69-62 win.

She joines Valerie Still (2,763) as the only women's players to reach that mark. On the men's side, Dan Issel (2,138), Kenny Walker (2,080) and Jack Givens (2,038) also topped 2,000 points.

Mathies was UK's second-leading scorer her freshman and sophomore years and the team's top scorer her junior and senior years.

Here are the year-by-year totals, courtesy of UK Athletics:
