Wiregrass Ranch senior Eric Williams scored his 1,000th point Thursday night in a 67-57 win against Wesley Chapel in front of the biggest home crowd in Bulls history, acccording to Bulls coach Jeremy Calzone.
Williams finished Thursday with 18 points, 14 rebounds and a school record 18 blocks for the triple double - his first of the season.
Williams is the Bulls' leading scorer, averaging 15.1 points per game. He scored a season-high 33 in a 61-56 victory against Gibbs on Dec. 21. He has posted double-digit rebounds in four consecutive games. Before Thursday, his season high for blocks was 11 in a 50-26 win against River Ridge on Dec. 15.
Calzone said in an e-mail Williams now has 1001 points, 625 rebounds and 401 blocks in three years at Wiregrass. Williams played at Freedom as a freshman, but Calzone said he has none of those statistics. Freedom was just 2-19 in the 2006-07 season, which would have been Williams' freshman year.
The Bulls are now 20-5 and the No. 2 seed entering next week's Class 4A, District 8 tournament.
