The recent talk about Harrison Ingram has been about how good he's been in regard to rebounding the basketball.

However, when you talk about the UNC basketball standout, you must talk about how the junior forward can impact the game in multiple ways, including as a scorer.

Behind a 12-point, 17-rebound performance on Saturday afternoon against Virginia Tech, Ingram quietly reached a scoring milestone.

Ingram has now join the 1,000-point scorers club, one that features quite a few current UNC basketball standouts.

Armando Bacot tops the list, as the fifth-year big man has scored over 2,100 points in his illustrious career. RJ Davis has quickly been rising up the UNC basketball program's all-time scoring list, as he now sits at 1858 career points, while Cormac Ryan, who started his career at Stanford before transferring to Notre Dame, has over 1,400 points to his name.

Now, add Ingram to the list, as his resume as a college basketball player continues to grow by the day.

It's no secret to how valuable Ingram has been to this year's UNC basketball squad, as he's been a vital part of the team's success. With a few regular season games remaining, the Tar Heels already tied its win total from a season ago, as Ingram's presence and energy has played a large role in that.

Ingram continues to prove that he's one of the biggest impact transfers in the entire country, as the UNC basketball program landed a star when he decided to become a Tar Heel.

The hope is that Ingram and the UNC basketball program have some more big-time type of performances down the stretch, as the goal is to be the last team standing in early April.
