Africentric Early College junior Jordan Horston scored the 1,000th point of her prep girls basketball career during a 70-33 victory over Independence on Jan. 23.

Horston had 26 points in the game, giving her 1,017 heading into the Nubians’ contest Jan. 26 at home against Columbus West.

Since she eclipsed the career milestone on the road, Africentric was planning to honor her during the game against the Cowboys.

“It’s truly a blessing to reach that milestone in my high school career,” Horston said. “I know it doesn’t stop there. (I) have to keep grinding. Getting the points is amazing and an honor, but all I’m really focused on is winning another (state title).”

A 6-foot-1 1/2 inch point guard, Horston averages 18.5 points and is one of the nation’s top prospects in the 2019 class. She has more than 30 scholarship offers, including from Ohio State, Duke, Kentucky, Maryland and Louisville.

Horston helped the Nubians win the last two City League championships as well as the 2016 Division III state title.

Africentric is first in the area coaches poll and is ranked second in the state.
