Lauren Duggan, a basketball star at St. Saviour High School in Park Slope, celebrated a personal milestone when she scored her 1,000th career point in a non-league game against St. Vincent Ferrer High School.

Duggan, a guard for the St. Saviour Pandas, scored 37 points during the Feb. 5 home game, the last home game of the season for the team.

After Duggan hit a free throw in the fourth quarter, the game was stopped so that the high school junior could celebrate the big moment with her teammates, her coaches and her family.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

Duggan, who hails from Breezy Point, is the first St. Saviour Panda to score 1,000 career points in 25 years. She is the sixth player in school history to reach the milestone, but she is the first to accomplish the goal in her junior year.

The talented player averaged 25.8 points a game this season.

The Pandas play in the Catholic High School Athletic Association.
