Congratulations to senior Kevin McKay, who broke the school’s career scoring record on Feb. 2, in a game against CHSL rival St. Mary’s.
McKay started the game five points under Mark Prylow’s 1990 record of 1,340. McKay broke the record early in the game, and finished with 29 points in the victory, to set a new benchmark of 1,365.
The Central Michigan University commit has been a four-year starter for the Pilots.
Prylow went on to play at Michigan State University.
Former DLS varsity basketball head coach Gary Buslepp, who is back at DLS as one of the academic support program’s teachers, after retiring as an administrator from the Grosse Pointe Public Schools, was not coaching Prylow that year, but said that Mike Peplowski who had a knee injury in his junior and senior years, was on track to break the record. “Pep” did go on to MSU and also played in the pro’s.
Gary also said that the previous records were by Bob McGinniss (1982), who broke the record set in 1968 by Frank “Big Red” Merrick.
