It took Harlem’s Reggie Reid two years to do what sometimes takes players four years to accomplish, if ever.
With a 25-point performance against Jefferson County Saturday, the Bulldogs’ sophomore guard broke the 1,000 point mark, finishing the game with 1,018.
“Sometimes it doesn’t happen until your senior year, I’m pretty excited about it,” Reid said.
The accomplishment came a day later than anticipated. Needing 16 points, an ailing Reid was held to nine points in a loss to Westside on Friday night.
Reid still wasn’t at 100 percent on Saturday.
“When I saw him walk into the locker room his eyes were swollen and he didn’t look great, but he played really well,” Harlem coach Kim Chambers said.
That the Bulldogs rebounded with a win Saturday was the thing Reid took away from the weekend.
“Points aren’t that important, winning is,” Reid said, who added that his main goal for the year is to make the state tournament.
