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.)

Bucks put up 50 points in dominant first quarter against the Wizards

Bucks put up 50 points in dominant first quarter against the Wizards The Milwaukee Bucks already had the best record in the NBA coming into Wednesday’s game against the Washington Wizards, but is it possible the team has been holding something back? The Bucks got off to an explosive start against the Wizards, putting up 50 points in the first quarter. How did the Bucks do it? It was a total team effort.

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.
