MANCHESTER — Tyler Horky put up 33 points Tuesday night, about four points above his season scoring average, as his Manchester basketball team fell to Michigan Center 80-53.
The high-scoring night for Horky is nothing new. He already has a 42-point game this season and last year set the single game Manchester scoring record with a 47-point game.
What was impressive about Tuesday’s performance was the career milestone that Horky reached. The 6-1 senior came into the game needing 20 points to reach 1,000 points for his career. A second quarter free throw was the magical 1000th career point.
Tyler is now third on the all-time Manchester scoring list:
- Tom Mann (1989), 1046
- Curt Fielder (1978), 1018
- Tyler Horky (2020), 1013
- Nick Krzyzaniak (1981), 1000
Horky, who is a member of the National Honor Society and carries a 3.9 grade point average, will be back in action Thursday when Manchester (4-3) goes on the road to East Jackson.
