Sahuaro junior Alyssa Brown scored 34 points Monday during a 62-42 win over Sunnyside at home. The victory gave Brown 2,384 career points and it moved Sahuaro to 9-0 on the year with Salpointe (10-0) making a visit Tuesday night.

Brown is headed to UNLV but the senior is making waves in her final year with the Cougars with her 32.2 scoring average. At her scoring rate, she has a legitimate shot at over 2,500 career points, putting her somewhere near the top of the list in the history of girls basketball in Arizona.

Brown had a shot at 3,000 career points which would have made her the top scorer ever but COVID restrictions made that a huge hurdle. Former Catalina Foothills and University of Arizona standout Julie (Brase) Hairgrove finished her prep career with 2,913 career points and that mark has held up for 23 years. Hairgrove is now an assistant with the Phoenix Mercury.
