With Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans watching, Mississippi State signee Lamar Peters proved his Twitter handle — @Lamar4three — was appropriate.
Peters made 10 three-pointers in New Orleans Landry-Walker’s 67-61 win against University High in the Allstate Sugar Bowl National Prep Classic.
According to the The New Orleans Advocate, Peters finished with 32 points. His only non-three was a dunk in the first half. He was 10-for-18 from three. Amazingly, according to the report, only one of his 10 threes hit the rim; the rest were all net.
“He (Davis) came to our practice earlier and told me he was going to come check me out tonight,” Peters told The New Orleans Advocate. “He told me that usually when he comes to games to check out kids, they get nervous. I told him he didn’t have to worry about that with me.”
Last season, Landry-Walker won a state championship in Louisiana. Peters was also named the state’s Class 4A player of the year.
A top-100 player per Scout.com, Peters is ranked as the No. 2 point guard in Louisiana behind Dejon Jarreau. The four-star prospect is listed as the No. 21 best point guard in the country.
