Crosby-Ironton's Tori Oehrlein becomes Minnesota's first sophomore girls basketball player to reach 3,000 points

Tori Oehrlein surpassed the milestone with her first basket of her 101st high school game

Crosby-Ironton's girls basketball team rarely waits long between baskets by Tori Oehrlein. This time the space between the last basket and the next surely seemed a little wider.

With her first basket Tuesday at Providence Academy, barely a minute and a half into the game, Oehrlein became the first sophomore in state history to surpass 3,000 career points. She had been stuck at 2,999 since scoring 41 points Friday against Staples-Motley. Oehrlein reached 3,000 points in her 101st game.

Oehrlein's fans traveled about 115 miles to see her hit the milestone. When she did, she was feted with gold balloons spelling "3,000.″ Oehrlein finished with 27 points.
