SCA Junior Owen Henshaw scored his 1000th career point at home on January 22 in a win vs. Rock Springs Christian Academy. Owen averaged 18 points a game during his sophomore year. This year, as a junior, he is averaging 20.3 per game. If he maintains a similar average during his senior year, he will be pushing 2000 points in his career!
“Scoring 1000 points in a high school career is an impressive milestone,” said Head Basketball Coach Kenny Roberts. “It takes commitment to basketball and shooting. Owen shoots basketball year-round. He is a relentless competitor who is developing as a leader among his teammates and classmates.” Headmaster Dr. Dougherty added, “Owen has proven himself as a shot-maker and a leader since his junior pro days. I have enjoyed watching him develop as an elite player. I could not be more proud of his accomplishment.”
SCA has been blessed to have three 1000-point scorers in five years on varsity men’s basketball teams. The last SCA player to reach this milestone was Grant Raven, Class of 2020. Previously, it was Stan Smith in the Class of 2018. Most schools go years without one!
UPDATE: Owen scored a total of 1,129 career points after his final game this season in February 2021!
