The Gregory School standout Nick Rosquist broke 2,000 career points in a 68-49 win at Desert Christian Saturday night. Rosquist finished with 31 points and five 3-pointers to give him 2,018 career points. He is now fifth on the All-Time scoring list from Southern Arizona.

“It’s a great feeling and a great accomplishment,” the senior said after the game. “It never entered my mind in my freshman year that I would be here and it still hasn’t hit me yet. We still have a few more games and playoffs.”
