With a little over a month left in the basketball season, several Trigg County basketball players continue to reach milestones on the court.

Jeremy Jones has passed Chris Sparks to become the school’s all-time leader in career 3-pointers with 219 entering this week.

Sparks held the old record of 201 from 1994-97, which was 18 more than Lemar Northington hit from 1995-99.

Sparks still holds the single season mark of 94 made 3-pointers during the 1997-97 season. Jones entered this week with 57.

For his career, Jones ranks 20th in state history in career 3-pointers.

Middlesboro’s Stuart Miller recently broke the state record for career 3-pointers. The senior guard has hit over 112 threes this season, giving him over 420 for his career.

The old mark of 407 was set by Ty Rogers of Lyon County two years ago. Chris Harrison of Tollesboro High has the single-season record of 145 set in 1991.

Jones also entered the week with 1,731 points, which is exactly 200 behind Northington’s career mark of 1,931 points. He needs 91 to pass Sparks for second place.

Jones already ranks second in career assists with 520 and is not likely to pass Northington’s career mark of 606.

Meanwhile, Rodney Davis had ten steals against Lyon County in the All-A Region Tournament recently at Wildcat Gym. That tally was three shy of Northington’s record of 13 set against Livingston Central in 1997 and tied Billy Alexander (1967) and Terrell Henderson (1987).

Davis may have also set a school record with 20 points in the second quarter of Trigg County’s All-A semifinal win over Providence. The actual school record is being researched this week.

Either way, the 20-point quarter ties Davis as the eighth best in state history, according to the KHSAA Record Book.

Billy Miller of Nancy High School once scored 50 points in a quarter against Pineknot High (I’m not making this one up) in a 1976 game. Miller’s final point total isn’t listed among state records of players who scored 65 or more points in a game.

On the girls’ side, Lady Wildcat junior Laquisha Boyd has cracked the career rebounding list at TCHS.

Boyd entered the week with 589 career rebounds, which ranks her ahead of ninth place Cathy Foster (564) and tenth place Ashley Guinn (558).

Ahead of Boyd are Lenora Henderson (629), Christina Ezell (670), and N’Keshia Coleman (671).

Christy Samsil is the school’s all-time leading rebounder with 1,167 career boards.
