Coming into Saturday night’s boys high school basketball game against Owen Valley, Northview’s Caleb Swearingen sat just 11 points away from the 1,000-point threshold.

The senior scored 19 points on the night to lead the Knights past the Patriots.

And during the third quarter, Swearingen etched his name into the Northview High School history books.

Swearingen curled around a screen set by Jacob Fowler and received a pass at the right elbow from Drew Cook.

He took one dribble, shot faked and then faded away off his left foot while releasing the ball.

It swished through the net, sending his teammates into complete jubilation on the bench.

Swearingen joins Kenny Rowan (1989), Micah Workman (1993), Chris DeHart (1999), Logan Whitman (2004), Zack Keyes (2004) and Brigham Booe (2018) in Northview’s 1,000-point club.

Swearingen, alongside his parents, Todd and Natalie, was presented with the game ball at the conclusion of the night.
