Canadian teacher convicted of 'pen camera' voyeurism

Canadian teacher convicted of 'pen camera' voyeurism Canada's top court on Thursday effectively broadened people's legal right to privacy protections by convicting a teacher of voyeurism for secretly filming female students at school. Ryan Jarvis, 41, had been charged for using a camera concealed inside a pen to make of video recordings of 27 female students aged from 14 to 18 years at a high school in London, Ontario where he taught. The 35 "pen camera" videos seized by police were recorded between January 2010 and June 2011.

Ridiculous individual statistics in basketball are always fun, and boy, did Canadian high school player Diego Maffia deliver that Saturday. Maffia, a 6’1” senior guard for Oak Bay High School in Victoria, British Columbia, scored 96 points in the Bays’ 114-88 win over Edmonton’s Ross Sheppard High School Thunderbirds Saturday. That win happened at the Western Canada Basketball Tournament in Kelowna, B.C., featuring eight top teams from B.C., Alberta, and Manitoba. And both Maffia and his coach were a bit surprised afterwards, as per Doyle Potenteau of Global News:

“I’m so shocked,” Maffia told Global News after the game. “I still really can’t believe what happened.”

“It was something I’ve never seen before, and I’ve been around basketball for, gosh, 35 to 38 years,” said Oak Bay coach Chris Franklin. “It was quite remarkable.”

“It was always a game within reach for the other team, so you’re partially worried about the final outcome,” said Franklin. “But after a while, you’re kind of curious on what [his point total] is because you don’t really know. You know it’s a big number, but you don’t really know.”

Franklin said Maffia’s teammates started feeding him the ball constantly in the final six or seven minutes, as “they wanted to see a teammate do well when something special is happening.”

Yeah, that was something special, all right. This was in a game for seventh and eighth place, so it wasn’t the highest stakes in the world, but Maffia still made some history. He beat the tournament record of 60 points, set by Alex Dewar of Marion Graham Collegiate in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. (Notably, Dewar beat the previous record of 59 points set by current Miami Heat forward Kelly Olynyk, which helps to indicate something about the level of play in this tournament.)

And while Canadian high school basketball is obviously a much different level of competition, it’s notable that 96 points by one player has only been surpassed once in the NBA (by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962, for the Philadelphia Warriors) and once for a NCAA Division I team (by Frank Selvy in 1954 for Furman, against Division II Newberry College). Also Maffia did this pretty efficiently. He shot 30-for-61 from the floor, making 15 three-pointers, and made 17 of 19 free throws. He also added eight rebounds, two assists, eight steals and a block. Here’s a Global report on the tournament from Travis Lowe, which includes footage of Maffia (#6 in green):

However, this isn’t a Canadian record. That appears to be held by Denham Brown, who put up 111 points for Toronto’s West Hill Collegiate Institute in a 150-58 win against R.H. King Academy in 2002. Maffia’s stats came in a much closer game, but Brown’s accomplishment was still remarkable, and he went on to play at Connecticut and (briefly) in the NBA. We’ll see if there’s similar success in store for Maffia down the road, but either way, he’ll always have this performance to look back on.
