Jaylen Hands Breaks Stephon Marburys 22 Year Scoring Record @Torrey Pines

  • 7 years ago
All-American guard Jaylen Hands needed only 11 points to break the UA Holiday Classic tournament individual scoring record of former Lincoln (Brooklyn, N.Y.) All-American Stephon Marbury in the title game of this year’s event versus a tough St. John’s (Washington, D.C.) team. Hands would have been satisfied to score 10 points — provided his Foothills Christian (El Cajon, Calif.) club won the tournament championship.
As it turns out, Foothills Christian is best when Hands has the ball in his hands and is looking to score and create for others with his drive-and-find game. That was the case for the Knights in the second half, after the score was tied 24-24 at halftime, as Hands netted 16 points in the third quarter and 10 points in the final period to lift Foothills Christian to a 61-57 win. Hands finished with 38 points and made two free throws with 8.4 seconds to seal the win.
