Scoring doesn’t define Isaac Blatt as a basketball player. Handling the ball, setting up teammates and playing defense does.

Let’s just say Blatt is a complete player, and leave it at that.

On Wednesday evening, Blatt tallied the 1,000th point of his career on the same night his Palmyra boys’ squad captured a championship. Blatt poured in a game-high 28 points, including his milestone point on a charity toss near the end of the Cougars’ 63-44 triumph over Ephrata, in the championship game of the Mounts’ holiday classic.

A day earlier, the Cougars had knocked off Elco 68-53 to reach the title tilt.

The 6-5 guard recorded his point total on 11 field goals, that included a pair of three-pointers and five dunks, and four-for-eight foul shooting. But his contributions to Palmyra’s championship went well beyond that, and into the realms of leadership, intangibles and sportsmanship.

Blatt is also an outstanding baseball player, and as of yet is undecided about his future plans.
