Northwestern junior point guard Bryant McIntosh has put his name atop Northwestern history books with his 529th assist, surpassing Juice Thompson’s career mark of 528. The assist came at the 13:49 mark of the second half of Northwestern’s game against Purdue when McIntosh found Vic Law for a dunk.

McIntosh, who leads the nation in career assists by a non-senior, has started since he arrived in Evanston and even earned his own campaign — #BMac4TheDime — this season after shattering the single-season Northwestern record last season.

As a freshman, McIntosh appeared in all 32 games, starting 30, and made the Big Ten All-Freshman team. He dished out 150 assists that year, averaging 4.7 per game. As a sophomore, McIntosh started all 32 games and set the single-season record with 213 total assists, which averages out to just about 6.6 per game. This season, McIntosh is averaging 5.4 assists per game.
