Déjà vu for Tamera Thorpe from GDS. If only everyday was December 30th.
It was déjà vu for former Greensboro Day School player Tamera Thorpe last night against NC Central University in a 66-61 win for Tamera and her University of South Carolina Upstate teammates. The win was great for USC Upstate to finish the calendar year with a win. However, it was a sort of strange déjà vu moment for Tamera.
Let me explain it this way.
On December 30, 2016 against a non-conference, Maryland Eastern Shore team from the MEAC, Tamera scored a season-high 27 points. Fast forward to December 30, 2017 against another non-conference MEAC match up with NC Central and Tamera scored a season-high 28 points. Maybe it was just a weird sequence of events or maybe it is a pattern established for the future.
All I can say is we should mark our calendars for next season’s December 30th, 2018 game. It is bound to be special. If only everyday was December 30th!
