High school girls basketball: Edmond Memorial's Katelyn Levings surpasses 1,000 career points
Edmond Memorial’s Katelyn Levings joined the 1,000-point club with a 15-point performance in the Norman North loss on Friday.
This season, the 6-foot-3 senior is averaging 16.1 points while grabbing nine rebounds per game.
“My dad definitely talked to me a lot about it as a freshman coming in and getting minutes,” Levings said. “But I struggled scoring a lot freshman year and I never knew that I would actually be able to make it.”
Levings, who has played varsity all four years, is the only starting player returning from last year’s 17-9 Bulldogs’ team. Edmond Memorial coach Curt Knox says that causes her to have to handle more of the scoring load.
“She’s very multiple, obviously at 6-3, she’s got all the moves, the secondary moves in the post position,” Knox said. “She certainly can step out and shoot the 3 as well. Obviously when you’re going to play DI basketball that pretty much speaks for itself.”
Levings signed with No. 16 Arizona State on Nov. 13, 2019.
“She’s very valuable, our best player, hardest worker, that’s what a coach always asks for,” Knox said. “She’s a good kid.”
Edmond Memorial will honor the forward at the next home game Jan. 31 against Moore.
