It was milestone night in Tucson with two basketball standouts passing the 1,000-point career mark at opposite ends of the city. Pueblo standout Summer Fox passed the milestone in a 60-49 loss at home and St. Augustine senior Jose Maldonado did the same in an 83-40 win against San Miguel across town.
Fox signed on to play for Black Hills State last Wednesday in a ceremony held at Pueblo. NAU assistant coach Kellee Barney was on hand to watch Sabino and Pueblo. Barney was an assistant at Arizona from 2002 to 2008.
