Professional basketball player Kelsey Griffin of Eagle River needs only 51 more points to reach 2,000 for her career.

Here is a scoring breakdown since the 6-foot-2 forward turned pro in 2010:

665 WNBA
501 Australia
488 Hungary
295 Israel

That’s a total of 1,949 points.

Griffin, of Chugiak High fame, pumped in 18 points today for Bendigo in Australia, including a three-point play late in the game that sealed an 84-81 win over the Canberra Capitals.

She scored 2,033 points at the University of Nebraska – the all-time most by an Alaska woman at the NCAA Division I level. Her 665 career points in the WNBA are the most by an Alaskan.
