Sayre entered the game 10 points shy of Antoine Duvert’s mark. He had 12 points in the first quarter alone and went on to finish with 24 points and 13 rebounds in the victory.
The 6-foot-5 senior now has 1,081 career points during three years on varsity.
“It’s definitely a cool thing to hear and to say, but right now we’re still more worried about the season,” said Sayre, who joined the varsity late in his freshman season. “Definitely after the season it’ll mean more to look back on it.”
Duvert has been the program’s all-time leading scorer since 1994. He finished with 1,066 career points.
Albertus Magnus improved to 14-2 with the victory. Coach Pat McFadden said the game was not stopped after Sayre broke the record. Instead, the school will likely honor him before its game against Pearl River on Wednesday.
