East Bay girls basketball player Shytina Harley scored her 1,000th career point Wednesday night in Indians' 56-50 loss to Riverview. Harley scored 22 points and added 15 rebounds.

She is also just 11 rebounds short of 1,000 career rebounds. Harley reached the mark in the second quarter, when the game was stopped and her mother, Clestine, was called down from the bleachers and mother and daughter were presented a banner and game ball.

Earlier this week, the Times told the story of Harley and her mother. Clestine Harley is was stationed in Korea for the past year and a half and was on a 45-day leave before leaving for Fort Bragg Thursday morning.
