BUENA CAREER SCORING LEADERS
Kino Bellinger (2015-current) 1,391
Marc Matthews (2009-2012) 1,374
Rod Springer (2012-2015) 1,113

Pusch Ridge junior guard Angel Addleman should be the next player from Southern Arizona to reach 1,000 career points.

ACTIVE SEEKING 1,000

GIRLS
Angel Addleman, Jr. Pusch Ridge: 945 (projected 1/25)
Alyssa Brown, So. Sahuaro: 890 (projected 1/31)

BOYS
Grant Ward, Sr. Buena: 941 (projected 1/29)
Julian Molina, Sr. Mountain View: 920 (projected 1/31)
Devion Makres, Sr. Academy of Tucson: 905 (projected 2/6)
Evan Nelson, Jr. Mountain View/Salpointe 831 (projected playoffs)

University of Arizona commit Nico Mannion has 1,761 career points at Pinnacle High School. The reclassified senior might break 2,000 career points but it will be close. Had Mannion decided to play next year, there is little doubt her would have been the fourth player in Arizona history to break 3,000 career points.

Globe standout Robert Burries is 24 points away from setting a new career scoring record for Arizona. He might get it Friday night against St. Augustine but the game will be played at Hayden High School due to structural damage to the Globe gymnasium. Globe beat St. Augustine 101-97 in December and Burries scored 55 points in that contest. St. Augustine standout Jose Maldonado scored 43 and Thomas Reyna scored 31.
