Boys basketball: Plumstead’s Curry scores 1,000th point


With a second quarter three against Life Center Academy on Dec. 11, Plumstead Christian senior Carson Curry scored his 1,000th career point. He ended with 1,009.

“The three I hit, I didn’t even think about 1,000 until the ball was in the air,” Curry admitted.

Curry entered the 2018-19 campaign with 921 career points. He dropped 23 against Valley Forge Baptist in Plumstead Christian’s opener and 45 the next night in an 80-48 rout of Coventry Christian.

“It means a lot. Saying this as humbly as possible, I kind of knew I’d get it because of how things lined up,” Curry said. “It’s a symbol of getting older too. I thought about this when it seemed like an eternity away and now it’s here. It was a lot of fun.”

Curry was a third team all-state selection and MVP of last year’s PIAA elite eight team. He is the eighth Panther, and the sixth boy, to score 1,000. The Panther scoring record is Max Drake’s 1,380. Drake, a teacher at Plumstead Christian, presented Curry with a commemorative poster.

“Not only is he my teacher, but I always looked up to him basketball-wise,” Curry said. “I saw him get his 1,000th when I was at Plumstead.”
