McGowen, a 5-foot-10 guard who has signed with Texas A&M, scored 41 points Tuesday night to push her career total to 4,542, according to totals compiled by A&M officials. The record had belonged to Missy Thomas, who scored 4,506 points at Gibsland-Coleman in Louisiana from 1992-95.

Fans filled the gymnasium at tiny Goodrich, which has an enrollment of 70, to watch McGowen break the record in a 55-49 victory over Chireno. Goodrich is about 65 miles northeast of Houston.

Texas A&M coach Gary Blair and his staff attended the game.

McGowen is averaging about 37 points per game this season after averaging 53 per game last year.
