LaMelo Ball highlights: UCLA commit drops 92 points in high school game
LaMelo had 29 points at halftime, then exploded in the second half of a 146-123 victory
LaMelo Ball, younger brother of UCLA freshman star Lonzo Ball, is making a name for himself on the high school circuit. From calling his own shot from the half-court line to lighting up scoreboards across Southern California, he's not lacking for confidence or talent for Chino Hills.
With older brother LiAngelo (also committed to UCLA) held out with an injury Tuesday night, LaMelo took advantage of the extra shots available. He dropped 92 points in a 146-123 victory against Los Osos High School. Ball had 41 points in the fourth quarter alone! Overall, he went 37 for 61 from the floor -- including 7 for 22 from the 3-point line -- and had seven assists (remember: A high school game lasts only 32 minutes).

According to ESPN's Jeff Borzello, LaMelo had only 29 points at halftime. So his incredible 63-point second-half outing is one for the ages -- even catching the eye of his older brother Lonzo, who weighed in on Twitter:
Well I mean that's one way to bounce back after a loss... I see you lil bro 9️⃣2️⃣— Lonzo Ball (@ZO2_) February 8, 2017
"It was very exciting, almost overwhelming," LaMelo's coach Stephan Gilling told the Los Angeles Times of LaMelo's performance.
