Hoops Star Edmead Scores 1,000th Career Point

On Jan. 25, high school basketball player Malik Edmead hit a three-pointer from the top of the key in an 87-48 victory over West Islip to score his 1,000th career point. At the next ball, the voice of the Falcons, Alex Mesimeris, announced the milestone, leading to a standing ovation from the crowd for Edmead and his teammates.

Edmead, an 11th-grader, is a three-year varsity player, won league championships in 2017 and 2018, and advanced to the county finals in 2018. He was an All-League, All-Conference, All-County, All-Long Island Second Team and All-State Sixth Team selection in his sophomore year. He already has two full Division 1 scholarship offers in only his junior year.

On that same night as Edmead’s accomplishment, the boys basketball team – in conjunction with a raffle run by the school’s cheerleaders – held its 14th annual Ryan Bryan Night, raising more than $600 to benefit the scholarships of beloved alumni Ryan Horodnicki and Bryan Manigault.
