LaMelo Bell, a sophomore at Chino Hills HS (California), put up 92 points in a regulation high school basketball game tonight. His older brother LiAngelo, who is a senior, sat on the bench while resting up before the playoffs start. Both are expected to eventually take the same path as their older brother Lonzo, who is currently lighting up college basketball at UCLA.
LaMelo took 61 shots tonight and was a beast close to the rim. He did hit seven three-pointers, but the bulk of his points came close in Chino Hills’ uptempo, fast break offense.
Chino Hills had a 60-game winning streak before losing to powerhouse Oak Hill. Their next game following the loss was against Los Osos tonight, so Ball took his anger out on them and won the game 146-123.

UCLA had to crawl and scratch to get through a difficult PAC 12 conference schedule. They are battle-tested and new head coach Steve Alford has them playing really well.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes hit ‘restart’ after the new year. They had a hellish non-conference schedule and lost every game against a team from a major conference. They rebounded to win the Conference USA tournament. The conference took a hit when may of the top schools joined the American Athletic Conference.
