Kelly alumni Kendall Ayers set the career scoring record in 1983.

“The program needs some life and this is giving it to it,” Ayers said. “Gavin gets all the credit and tonight is a night about Gavin and I’m truly happy for him, couldn’t be happier.”

Jansen scored eight points in the first half. In the fourth quarter, Jansen broke Ayer’s record and became Kelly’s all-time leading scorer.

“It was crazy. I didn’t know how many points I had left. I made the point and everyone went crazy,” Jansen said. “It was a good feeling. Got loyal fans that were all standing and cheering for me. That feels good and I couldn’t be happier. I’m proud to take it from Kendall. I’ve always liked Kendall and it felt good. Just glad to be a Hawk.”
