Golden State Warriors (5-21, 15th in the Western Conference) vs. Utah Jazz (14-11, sixth in the Western Conference)

One thousand and thirteen.

That's the total number of points Jewelia Maniss has scored in her four years as a starter for Porterville High School girls basketball.

The senior guard was just one point away from the scoring milestone but it wasn't until late in the first quarter that she pulled off the accomplishment on a drive to the basket in Tuesday's 51-44 home victory over Sierra Pacific (3-4).

The Golden Bears have been a constant thorn in the Panthers' side, with Sierra Pacific winning the previous three meetings, so getting to 1,000 against them felt like “redemption” for Maniss.

“Honestly it felt like a relief especially since we lost to them the last three years and it was just a good sense of redemption,” Maniss said. “It felt good.”
