Last season, Jordan Bachynski set the Pac-12 single-season blocks record with 120. So it only makes sense that entering his senior year, the career Pac-12 record is well within reach. A record that has stood since the late 1980s.

Jordan enters this year needing 98 blocks to match Anthony Cook’s Pac-12 record of 278 swats set way back from 1985-89. He only needs 11 to set the Sun Devil record held by Marion Bennett (191 from 1991-95 in a three-year career).

Jordan has a chance to move into the top five very early in the year. He only needs 15 to match Sam Clancy of USC with 196.

PAC-12 CAREER BLOCKED SHOTS
1. 278 – Anthony Cook (Arizona), ’85-89
2. 253 – Taj Gibson (USC), ’06-09
3. 258 – Channing Frey (Arizona), ’01-05
4. 207 – Michael Stewart (California), ’93-97
5. 196 – Sam Clancy (USC), ’98-02
6. 191 – Mario Bennett (Arizona State), ’91-95
7. 188 – Jelani McCoy (UCLA), ’95-98
8. 186 – Chris Welp (Washington), ’83-87
8. 196 – Loren Woods (Arizona), ’99-00
10. 185 – Dan Gadzuric (UCLA), ’98-02
181 – Jordan Bachynski (Arizona State), ’10-present

One more nugget on the big guy…he finished fourth in NCAA in blocks per game with 3.43, which means he is second-best returning shot blocker in America this year, behind only Chris Obekpa of St. John’s (4.03).
