St. Pius’ Naeger joins 1,000-point club

St. Pius boys basketball star Riley Naeger has hit another significant marker in his record-setting career.

The senior Lancer forward scored his 1,000th career point in a 79-46 win over Perryville on February 4th.

Naeger says when he hit the millenium scoring mark, he wasn’t aware what he had accomplished.

Naeger is averaging almost 18 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists per game to help the Lancers get to 16-6 this season.
However, Naeger says his focus as his career winds down in the same as his team’s: winning a championship.

St. Pius made the Class 3 District 3 championship game last season but lost to Jefferson.
Naeger is committed to continue playing basketball at Drury University next season.
