Cloverdale's Rowland breaks school scoring record

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Cloverdale senior guard/forward Robby Rowland broke the school’s scoring record and moved into second place on the Empire’s all-time list with 45 points in the Eagles’ 109-30 win at Upper Lake on Tuesday night.
Rowland passed Cloverdale legend Craig McMillan, the SRJC men’s basketball coach who was a starting guard on Arizona’s 1988 Final Four team. McMillan had 2,307 career points at Cloverdale, where he led the Eagles to two state titles. Rowland (2,339 points) is 51 points away from breaking the Empire’s career scoring record held by Rincon Valley Christian’s Rich Waller.
“Robby is a great kid,” McMillan said. “He’s spent a lot of time in the gym. He’s worked very hard to become a better player.”
By the way, Rowland is unofficially ranked 38th on the state’s all-time scoring list. He is five points away from passing Don MacLean (Simi Valley, 1986-1988), who became the Pac-10’s all-time leading scorer at UCLA and played nine years in the NBA.
