Anchorage’s Ramon Harris of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants tonight reached the 1,000-point milestone for his NBA D-League career.

The fourth-year forward scored four points in 14 minutes coming off the bench in a 107-105 win over the Iowa Energy in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Harris, of West High fame, made the only 3-pointer he attempted to raise his season percentage to .460, which is the fifth highest in the D-League.

The 6-foot-7 sharpshooter is 23-for-50 from downtown. He is shooting more than 100 points higher than his career percentage [.358] entering the season.

Harris has scored 1,002 points in 148 career games.

This is just another major milestone for the 27-year-old, who will go down as one of the most accomplished players in Alaska hoops history.

In high school, he was part of four state championship teams.

At the University of Kentucky, he was on the floor the night the Wildcats secured the program’s 2,000th victory.

As a pro, he scored a career-high 48 points in a game during his only season in China. He won a NBADL title with the Mad Ants in 2014 and last year made it back to the Finals, where he poured in 30 points in a Game 1 defeat.
