When Braxton Beverly announced he was transferring from Kentucky school Perry County Central for his final high school season, many were shocked. Now he’s turning heads for a more powerful reason: He’s absolutely dominating on the court for perennial power Hargrave Military Academy.

Competing for Hargrave’s postgraduate squad. Beverly notched an almost unbelievable 70 points to go with 6 assists and 4 rebounds against Chatham Hall, a 131-86 Hargrave rout.

Beverly scored every which way possible for Hargrave, and did so while sporting Pepto Bismol pink. His 70 points were a school record, one point more than current Celtics star Terry Rozier. According to the Danville Register Bee’s interview with Hargrave coach A.W. Hamilton, there’s little question which performance was more impressive.

“The thing with Terry Rozier was the game he scored those points in went to triple overtime,” Hamilton said. “So we played 15 extra minutes, and Terry played nearly all of them. For Braxton to do what he did tonight in the minutes he played and to have the kids rally around him was unbelievable. We may never see that again.

“I thought seeing Scott Meredith hit 18 3’s in a game last year was one of the best performances I’ve seen, but I’ve never seen anything like what Braxton did tonight.”

Beverly has always been a natural scorer. which games of 50 and 52 points to his name in the past. Now he has a single game in which he blew away all of his personal records, not to mention the ones for Hargrave itself.
