Marcus Kennedy and Greg Brown each reached scoring milestones this week, as the University of Montevallo swept past the University of West Alabama, 83-75, and Oakwood College, 99-74.

Kennedy scored 20 points in Saturday&8217;s win over UWA to move into sole possession of second place on the all-time scoring list. The Birmingham native&8217;s 17 points against Oakwood on Monday gave him 1,879 career points, just ahead of UM Hall-of-Famer Gerald Douglass, who scored 1,860 points in 115 games from 1971-75.

Kennedy needs 121 points to reach 2,000 points and become only the second Falcon in school history to surpass 2,000 points. UM Hall of Famer Nate Driggers owns the school all-time scoring record of 2,054 points.

Kennedy posted his fifth double-double of the season, and 26th of his career, collecting a game-high 12 rebounds.

Brown scored a game-high 30 points against UWA, including four 3-point baskets. Brown surpassed the 1,000 point plateau and moved into seventh all-time for the Falcons. Brown now has scored 1,045 points in his career after posting 22 on Monday.
