Tuesday, March 1, 2011
SHREVEPORT-In her final game as a member of the Centenary Ladies basketball team, senior Anne Farrell notched her 1,000th career point and became the fifth women's basketball player all-time to accomplish this feat.

The Tulsa, Oklahoma native's layup with 4:42 left to play in her final game in a Centenary uniform, helped tally exactly 1,000 career points.

Farrell, a four-year letterwinner and starter for Centenary battled injuries and time away from the court during her tenure, but despite those obstacles, she still managed to become one of the Top 5 all-time leading scorers in Ladies basketball history.

She recorded 18 points in her final game against Western Illinois on Monday, which put her at 1,004 total points, placing her fifth all-time. During her career, Farrell notched 16 career double-double efforts and scored in double figures 52 times, 13 of which came this season.

Her career-best game came in 2007 at McNeese State in a 25-point effort, making 11-of-19 from the field. She not only ranks in Top 5 in scoring, but finished second all-time in rebounds with 731. Farrell pulled down a career-best 21 boards against Oral Roberts on Feb. 19 of this season.

Farrell joins all-time leading scorer Alexis Pettway (1,416), teammate Ashley Jackson (1,133), Julie Daniels (1,038) and Holli Wilkins (1,005) in the elite 1,000-Point Club for Centenary women's basketball.

Jackson reached this milestone on Jan. 15 and now sits second all-time with 1,133 career points as she, too, wrapped up her four-year career on Monday evening.

"Anne has done a great job for Centenary women's basketball during her four years. She is an unselfish player who works hard for her teammates and school. I am so proud of Anne and what she has accomplished," said head coach Kristen Davis.
