Star Canadian high school point guard Ahmed Ali scored 103 points — and a whopping 23 three-pointers — in Toronto John Polanyi High’s 111-76 victory against C.W. Jefferson on Wednesday, according to a report from NorthPoleHoops.com.
Ali joined Denham Brown as the only Canadian players to eclipse the century mark in a game. Brown had 111 points for West Hill Collegiate Institute in a 2002 game against R.H. King Academy.
Ali is ranked among the top 50 prospects in Canada, according to northpolehoops.com, and is likely to play in high-level Canadians junior college next season.
Ali had 48 points at halftime with his team leading 56-28.
“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.
