East Bay senior basketball played Shytina Harley is nearing a pretty significant milestone.

Harley, who is the Indians' leading scorer (14.5 points per game) and rebounder (9.3) this season, is just a few outings away from reaching the 1,000-point, 1,000-rebound mark.

A four-year starter for the Indians, Harley has 938 career points and 934 career rebounds. East Bay (10-7) has eight more regular season games, starting with tonight's district matchup at Plant City, and then the district tournament at East Bay, so Indians coach Terry Varvil Jr. believes the mark is attainable.

"A lot of people score 1,000 points or have 1,000 rebounds, but not many manage to do both," Varvil said.

Harley is already the school record holding in career rebounds and blocked shots (206) and is second in school history in steals (208).
