ST. ELMO – When it comes to playing basketball, there are a lot of similarities in the styles of Fischer Tharp and Connor Beasley.
So it’s no wonder that the South Central and St. Elmo seniors each scored their 1,000th career point in the same game on Tuesday, a 45-31 Eagles victory.
“It was good to get it out of the way early, and it was fun doing it with my friend, Connor,” Tharp said. “It’s really cool. I’m really happy for him.
“I don’t know how many other friends get to do this.”
