Everett High junior Ghared Boyce scored the 1,000th point of his career to highlight the Crimson Tide’s 83-51 victory over Belmont in the BABC Holiday Classic Tuesday at Cathedral High School.
Boyce made a layup in the second quarter to reach the milestone for the undefeated hoop team. The 6-foot guard averaged 28 points a game as a sophomore and has continued his excellent play this season.
“It’s a big accomplishment and I worked so hard the past three years off and on the court and I put in my work in the gym,” said Boyce. “My goal is to earn a scholarship, work on my grades, and win a state championship.”
Everett coach John DiBiaso congratulated Boyce on his achievement.
“I was very happy for him and very happy for the team,” said DiBiaso. “It was a nice atmosphere at the BABC Tournament for him to achieve this accomplishment so we’re proud for him.”
Boyce’s family was in attendance at the game. His brother, Gerell, is a member of the EHS varsity basketball team. Also on hand were his mother, Lolita Davis, his father, Gerard Boyce, and his brother, Ghustin Boyce.
