It was a senior night that will live forever in Norwell girls' basketball history.
Six minutes into the second quarter, senior center Brenna Diggins grabbed her 1,000th career rebound as the Clippers went on to defeat Mashpee, 54-14, and move to 16-4 on the season.
She hit 1,000 career points as a junior - currently sitting at 1,359 - for the first player in school history to be a double member of the 1,000-stat club.
"For our program it solidifies what the entire program stands for - playing every possession and not taking anything for granted," coach Matt Marani said.
Diggins, playing gingerly on a sore knee, entered seven rebounds from the historic mark and finished exactly there, coming out two minutes later and sitting for the rest of the game. She had 11 points.
Marani said he run plays for her to do her thing - ideally finding a one-on-one situation to let her drop-step, but really he expects everything and anything from her.
"It starts in the paint with Brenna, and her teammates step up as we play," he said. "She drives her team, and it's been that way for four years."
Diggins only has two regular-season games left in a Clippers uniform.
"I hope someday I'll another have a player like her, but it's very doubtful ," Marani said.
