Crilley entered the game needing 15 points to become the 12th Holy Spirit girl to join the 1,000 club. She reached the milestone on a scoop layup with 1:25 left in the half, then celebrated with teammates, family and friends in a mid-court ceremony complete with flowers and balloons.

Crilley added a 3-point shot in the last minute as the Spartans took a 12-point lead into the halftime break.

She finished the game with 23 points in a 77-54 win as the Spartans improved to 13-2 overall.
