Northwest Nazarene University’s Kevin Rima of Fairbanks is the school’s greatest rebounder in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

He currently ranks 15th in GNAC history with 620 rebounds and could potentially move up four spots in his final college game Saturday. The senior needs 10 to move into 11th all alone.

The 6-foot-7 post player ranks ninth in league history with 248 offensive boards.

There’s more.

Rima, of Hutchison High fame, also has a chance to move up the school’s points list. He recently surpassed the 1,000-mark milestone and could move into 6th place with 18 points Saturday. He currently has 1,050 points.

He scored 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting in tonight’s 91-67 win over Montana State Billings.

This season Rima ranks eighth in the league in field-goal percentage [.573] and No. 1 in offensive rebounds [2.8].
