He finishes his high school career with over 100 varsity wins and is one of Illinois top 20 scorers of all-time (2,682 pts).

While these are nice totals, Brunson wasn’t concerned with stats. He was concerned with winning, improving his game and maximizing and utilizing his teammates’ talents. Brunson often acted like a second coach on the floor, guiding his teammates to a 30-3 overall record, playing a national schedule for the first time in school history.
