Shurn scores 1,000th point in USF victory

FORT WAYNE — Former Kokomo standout Skylarr Shurn scored 15 points to help the unbeaten University of Saint Francis women’s basketball team roll over Bethel College 76-44 Wednesday night and in the process, hit her milestone 1,000th point.

Shurn reached 1,000 with a 3-pointer in the first half. She now stands as one of 20 women to score in quadruple digits for USF with a career total of 1,011 points for the Cougars. She hit the milestone in less than two seasons after she spent her freshman and sophomore seasons in junior college at Vincennes. Shurn added five rebounds and seven assists in Wednesday’s victory.

USF is ranked No. 1 in NAIA Division II and improved to 25-0 on the season, and 13-0 in the Crossroads League.
