Roundup - Pittsnogle scores 1,000th point



* BOYS BASKETBALL


MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Martinsburg center Kevin Pittsnogle not only surpassed the 1,000-point plateau for his career, he single-handedly outscored Keyser with his 23 points to lead the No. 3 Bulldogs to a 81-19 victory.

"I knew I was going to get it in this game," the 6-foot-10 senior said. "I hoped to get it in the first quarter and get it out of the way. But I'm not worried about that stuff. I just want to go out there and play ball and have fun."

Pittsnogle cracked the milestone early in the second quarter and then spent most of the rest of the night watching the Bulldogs (17-4) ease to the victory. Martinsburg led 24-4 after the first quarter and 41-12 at the half.

"You never like to see a game with a lopsided score like this," Martinsburg coach Dave Rogers said. "This is a big night for Kevin Pittsnogle. To score 1,000 points in your high school career is big. He's worked extremely hard since coming here as a freshman."
