Basketball: Okoro reaches 2,000 points

By Phil Anastasia

Gloucester's Stefano Okoro on Monday became just the second player in the history of the boys' basketball program to score 2000 career points.

Okoro, a 6-0 senior guard, scored 24 points to exactly reach the 2,000-point mark in a 56-47 victory over Pennsauken Tech.

Okoro scored 18 of his points in the second half, including 11 in the fourth quarter. He is South Jersey's leading scorer with a 27.3 average.

Okoro joins Keith Gorman, a 1998 graduate, as the only two players to score 2,000 points in Gloucester boys' basketball history. Gorman finished his career with 2,128 points.

Gloucester's Megan Light, who also graduated in 1998, also scored more than 2,000 career points.
