During the Garnet's annual Pink Zone game to promote breast cancer awareness, Ceylan Bodur '11 scored an uncontested lay-up following the tip-off to become just the eighth player in program history to reach 1,000 career points. The women's basketball team ultimately scored a 73-44 victory over Bryn Mawr College.

Following Bodur's layup, Bryn Mawr's Callie Jensen followed with an uncontested lay-up to make the score 2-2 with 19:43 on the clock. Swarthmore then proceeded to call a timeout, subbing out its four senior starters, who walked hand-in-hand with Bodur off the court. Bodur, an economics major from Istanbul Turkey, entered the game with 999 career points. She suffered a career-ending knee injury on January 29 in a victory over Gettysburg. "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," said Bodur. "I also really want to thank Bryn Mawr and my coach for making this possible." Giving even more meaning to the already special game was the fact that President Rebecca Chopp and Jane McAuliff, president of Bryn Mawr College, served as honorary coaches for their respective teams during the game. more
