The Houston Rockets hit 24 3-pointers in a recent NBA game to set a league record, but that’s no big deal to First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills, N.C.
The Nighthawks set a state record in a game against Bertie recently, hitting 28 3-pointers in 61 attempts to shatter the mark of 22 set by Southern Durham in 2001.
Despite the 3-point barrage, the Falcons took a 120-107 victory against the Nighthawks.
Freshman point guard Dylan Blake led First Flight (7-3) with 39 points. He went 10-for-20 from 3-point range. They were his only attempts from the field. Sophomore forward Reese Jones added 30 points on 10-of-19 3-point shooting.
First Flight coach Chad Williams said his team has attempted 561 3-pointers this season and hit 155 heading into the holidays.
