The last time we saw James Wilkins III in Davie County, he was a basketball star for North Davie in 2016-17.

During that eighth-grade season, he averaged 23.6 points. He had games with 30, 35, 37 and 39 points.

Now Wilkins of Mocksville is having a legendary career at Calvary Day School in Winston-Salem.

The 6-3 junior scored his 1,500th point on Feb. 12. He became the third Cougar to reach the milestone, but the first junior to do it.

The Cougars finished the season with a 10-14 record. Wilkins was the No. 1 scorer with a 17.8 average.
