Three more DeKalb County senior basketball players hit career milestones
this season by eclipsing the 1,000 point career mark on the court.
Tucker's Serena Clark broke the 1000 point barrier on January 22 at home
against North Springs as she scored 13 points in a 55-28 victory. Clark is
averaging a double-double on the season through 22 games as she is scoring
17.4 points and grabbing 11.4 rebounds a game. She has 17 double-doubles
on the season out of the 22 games she has played.
Clark has 1,063 points and 689 rebounds in 88 games for her career. The
6-1 Clark is set to continue her education and playing career after
signing with Clemson in the fall.
The undefeated and No. 1 ranked Redan Lady Raiders boast a pair of 1,000
point scorers in seniors Nia Evans and Alisha Andrews.
Evans, a 6-0 forward, needed just 24 points this season to reach the 1,000
point plateau. She reached the milestone in the season's second game, a
61-23 win over Greenbrier. The senior has played in 98 games in four
seasons (only counting 16 this year) to total 1,189 points and 762
Andrews, a 5-0 point guard, has not let her stature slow her down in
playing 101 games in her four-year career (counting just 16 in 2010) to
hit for 1,059 points while dishing out 442 assists and collecting 332
steals. She entered the season needing 164 points to go over 1,000 for her
career. Andrews hit the mark with a 13-point game in a 58-33 victory over
Union Grove on January 21.
