Incoming Trojan Destiny Littleton Breaks Scoring Record, Named McDonald's All-American|
Jan. 16, 2017
Fresh off setting the state scoring record, incoming Trojan Destiny Littleton has also landed a place in the McDonald's All-American Game. The Bishop's School product became California's all-time leading scorer in high school girls' basketball on Jan. 14. The very next day, she was named a McDonald's All-American with a spot on the West team. She and fellow USC signee Shalexxus Aaron were both nominees for 2017 McDonald's All-American status.
This past weekend, Destiny Littleton punched up 30 points for Bishop's School to set a new California scoring record, now with 3,838 points in her high school career to date. That tally tops previous record-holder Charde Houston -- another San Diego native. Littleton passed up Trojan great Cheryl Miller's high school total a month ago. Needless to say, Littleton's listing as a 2017 McDonald's All-American is a deserving honor for the Trojan-to-be. She follows in the footsteps of current USC players Jordan Adams (2012) and Sadie Edwards (2014), whom Littleton will join at Troy next season.
Littleton also has landed herself on the Naismith High School Girls' Mid-Season Team, putting her in contention for the 2017 Naismith High School Girls' Player of the Year award. Ten semifinalists for the award will be announced February 6, 2017.
