Salisbury's Foreman nears milestone


February 01, 1991|By John W. Stewart

Andre Foreman of Salisbury State is on schedule to become the first junior in the state to score 2,000 points in basketball.

The 6-foot-6 forward from Berlin (Stephen Decatur) has 1,862 points and six regular-season games remaining. For the season, he is averaging 30.8, second in Division III behind Erick Burris of Medgar Evers College in New York, 32.6.

Ten male players in state history have scored more than 2,000 in a career, but all passed the milestone as seniors.

Jack Sullivan of Mount St. Mary's is the leader, 2,672, followed by David Robinson, Navy, 2,669; Jim Lacy, Loyola, 2,199; Len Bias, Maryland, 2,146; Ed Rutledge, Frostburg State, 2,115; Nick Scallion, Washington, 2,087; Juan Gabourel, Salisbury State, 2,064; Albert King, Maryland, 2,058; Ronald Smith, University of Baltimore, 2,025; and John Lucas, Maryland, 2,015. The only woman is Tammy McCarthy of University of Maryland Baltimore County, 2,063.

Foreman also is eighth in rebounding in Division III, with an average of 12.8. His 856 for a career place him fifth on the school's all-time list, where the leader is Howard Hockley, 1,299.


Angie Dobbs (Perry Hall), a junior, recently became the fourth Naval Academy woman to score more than 1,000 career points in basketball, but she will have to wait until next year to continue her climb.

Working as either a guard or a forward, Dobbs, 5 feet 9, the academy's all-time three-point scorer, has 1,001 points. Ahead of her are Colleen Cassidy, 1,817; Connie James, 1,643; and Bernie Boska, 1,325.


Senior Michelle Reyes, a three-time Division II All-America, has won the all-around in each of Navy's three women's gymnastics meets, putting up a best of 36.6. Navy will be the home team for the annual state meet with Maryland and Towson State tomorrow afternoon.

Reyes will be hard-pressed to win the all-around. Towson State has had three athletes score more than 37.0, and Maryland one.
