“After the first half, I started taking stats, I felt something special was going to happen,” coach Adeel Sahibzada told NorthPoleHoops.com. “They tried box and one, double teaming, diamond (1-3-1) and 3-2 zone defense. … “It was tough to guard him…every time he touched the ball, he launched.”

In Chamberlain-esque fashion, Ali has a photo of him holding sheet of paper with his point total.
