A Halifax native continues to make Nova Scotia basketball history. 

Nate Darling became the first Nova Scotian to record points in the NBA on Wednesday night when he sank a three-pointer in a game between his Charlotte Hornets and the Houston Rockets. 

Darling became the first Nova Scotian to play in a regular season NBA game on Mar. 13.

The 22-year-old, six-foot-five shooting guard went undrafted, signing with Charlotte as a free agent.
