WILLMAR -- It took Kelsey Evans 11 seconds to become the ninth Willmar girls basketball player to score 1,000-or-more points in a career Friday night.

Needing only one point to reach the mark, the senior sharpshooter buried a three-point shot from the left wing on the team's first possession of the game. She finished with 14 points and now has 1,013.

Willmar won its seventh straight game, thumping St. Cloud Tech 65-48 in a Central Lakes Conference game.
