Dayton Daily News: Miami Valley home to a dozen 1,000 point GBKB scorers
Urbana senior Trischa Lacy's 50 points against Indian Lake puts her in rare company. The fact that she recently surpassed 1,000 career points should, too. Not this season...However unlikely, nine Dayton-area girls have surpassed 1,000 points this season. One went over 2,000.
Trischa Lacy grew up mesmerized by Bill “Skeet” Moss’ stories about past Urbana High School great girls basketball players. Now, she’s a part of his repertoire.
Her team trailing Indian Lake by 15 points, Lacy got a “little lecture” from Moss at halftime of the Hillclimbers’ Jan. 12 game.
Said Lacy: “Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.”
What followed was.
Urbana rallied for a 77-71 win thanks in part to Lacy’s 50 points. She had 33 in the second half. It’s the area’s top individual scoring performance this season. Only Valley View senior Zack Denny (51 points) has more.
“I’m a competitor,” Lacy said. “I hate to lose. In the second half … my girls got after it.”
Several others have followed that scoring mantra.
While Lacy’s 50-point game puts her in rare company, the fact that she recently surpassed 1,000 career points should, too. Not this season.
However unlikely, nine area girls have surpassed 1,000 points this season. Tecumseh’s Bianca Quisenberry went over 2,000 points.
“In my 25 years, I can’t remember a year where this many players reached the 1,000-point milestone in one season,” said Jim Dabbelt, director of The Dabbelt Report (a regional girls basketball website). “It’s common to have one or two kids per season reach that mark, but no less than nine this year is phenomenal.
“Scoring over 2,000 points like Quisenberry is beyond impressive.”
It’s not over...
