GREAT FALLS — Emilee Maldonado became the third University of Providence player to score 2,000 career points in their career joining her teammate Parker Esary who eclipsed that mark against Carroll College Jan. 27.
Esary and Maldonado are on their fifth year sharing the court which made sharing the moment together even better for Maldonado who’s family was also in attendance from Sunnyside, WA.
"It's exciting. I think it shows a lot of what we did and what we were capable during our time here. She's a dominant force in the post and I'm a point guard; [we are] a 1-2 punch out there. I think that's most important that we could do it together.”
