“After the first half, I started taking stats, I felt something special was going to happen,” explained his Prep Head Coach Adeel Sahibzada.
He shot approximately 50-60% from the field for the game, according to Sahibzada.
“They tried box and one, double teaming, diamond (1-3-1) and 3-2 zone defense” he continued.
“He kept going further and further.”
Ali was launching from right around half court…where he made five of them, as hard as that is to believe.
“It was tough to guard him…every time he touched the ball, he launched.”
When he was done launching, he had 103 total points for the game. 69 of those points came on his 23 3-pointers.
Ali joins Denham Brown, who scored 111 in 2002, as the only Canadians to ever score over a 100 in a high school basketball game.
