Carr eclipses 2,000-point mark

Coming into his first game on Nov. 22, Princeton Day (Beltsville, Md.) point guard Aquille Carr needed just 10 points to reach 2,000 for his career. By the end of the game he’d scored 32 points and dished out 10 assists in a 79-77 win over New Hope Christian Academy (Thomasville, N.C.) in the Bull City Classic in Durham, N.C.

“I knew that I needed the 10 points and my teammates helped me get good shots,” said Carr, a Seton Hall commit who is widely regarded as one of the top players in the country. “I just went out there and went for it. I didn’t have to rush anything. We got it done together.”
