Tobias Harris entered his senior season with 1,530 points and can reasonably expect to become the 11th Long Island boys player to score 2,000 points in his career. That assumes, of course, that Harris remains healthy and that the Colts, Newsday’s No. 1-ranked team, advance deep into the postseason and play several more than the 18 games of their regular season. If that's the case, I figure Harris only needs to average a little more than 20 points per game to reach 2,000.
Harris has scored 59 points in his three games to date. He managed only 10 points on Thursday night against Deer Park in a one-sided victory. “They were triple-teaming him,” coach Bill Mitaritaonna said. But that opened it up for Tyler Harris to score a career-high 23.
Here is the game-by-game scoring breakdown for Harris so far:
Vs. Eastport-South Manor: 21
Vs. Copiague: 28
Vs. Deer Park: 10
Career total: 1,589
