Watch: Women's Basketball Featured on Good Day Philadelphia

Swarthmore Senior's Quest For 1,000 Pts:

Fox 29's Jenn Frederick of Good Day Philadelphia visited the Swarthmore campus to tell the story of Swarthmore women's basketball player Ceylan Bodur '11. Bodur, an economics major from Istanbul Turkey, had 999 career points when she suffered a career-ending knee injury on January 29.

Thanks to the good sportsmanship of the Bryn Mawr team she recently had the opportunity to score her 1000th career point and to become just the eighth player in program history to reach 1,000 career points. Bodur scored two points on an uncontested lay-up following the tip-off, Bryn Mawr's Callie Jensen then followed with an uncontested lay-up to make the score 2-2. Swarthmore then proceeded to call a timeout, subbing out its four senior starters, who walked hand-in-hand with Bodur off the court.

Bodur reflected "I'm really glad that I got to step on the court one last time and finish my career at Swarthmore on such a positive note," she added "I also really want to thank Bryn Mawr and my coach for making this possible. The women's basketball team ultimately scored a 73-44 victory over Bryn Mawr College.
