Whitney Creech’s incredibly scoring prowess has been chronicled as she became Kentucky’s leading scorer and passed an incredible 5,000 points.

Creech added another big night to her ledger on Wednesday in a rare basketball doubleheader. Her Jenkins (Ky.) team played two games against Cordia (Hazard).

Creech, a Western Kentucky signee, finished a total of 93 points on the night — 41 in the opener and 52 in the nightcap. Cordia returned to action with these games after forfeiting its last three, according to the KHSAA scoreboard.

The final scores were 112-21 and 86-7. As pointed out by our colleague Jason Frakes at the Louisville Courier-Journal, Creech could have had way more.

Creech was coming off a 59-point performance on her Senior Night on Saturday with her future coach, Michelle Clark-Heard, in the stands.
