Posted on:

Plum senior James Edwards was honored recently for scoring the 1,000th point of his high school basketball career. Edwards is a two-time 1st Team All-Section honoree and has signed a letter of intent to play at the Air Force Academy next year.

Edwards and the Mustangs defeated McKeesport on Tuesday night, 64-53, to improve to 11-4 overall and 6-3 in Section 2-AAAA action. Edwards scored a game-high 21 points in the game and Rob Deemer added 10 points for Plum. McKeesport’s Khaleke Hudson paced the Tigers with 20 points.

Plum’s victory over McKeesport sets the stage for a big contest on Thursday night at Gateway (10-5, 5-4) in a game that will be broadcast live on MSA Sports as the Quad-A Conference Basketball Game of the Week. The Plum vs. Gateway girls’ basketball contest will also be featured as a Game of the Week broadcast with tip-off slated for 6:00 pm in Monroeville. Don Rebel and Randy Gore will have the call on the MSA Sports Network.
