A night as good as advertised
Kosmo can't remember when two high school players combined for 96 points in the same basketball game, but that's exactly what happened in the classic at Troy between the host Colts and Clarkston.
James Young certainly looks to have turned his season around, scoring 49 points against a Clarkston team that usually has one of the best defenses around. That was simply incredible, but so was the performance of Clarkston senior Nick Tatu, who scored 47 of his own.
Tatu hit 12 3-pointers also! Wow. Kosmo could live 200 years and maybe not see performances like that on the same court.
Over at Bloomfield Hills Andover, a buzzer-beating shot by Shannon Wilson gave Andover a one-point win over Royal Oak in a battle for first place in the OAA Blue.
At Clarkston, Auburn Hills Avondale earned some payback for an earlier one-point loss by knocking off Clarkston, 47-44, to move into a first-place tie with the Wolves in the OAA Red.
If all that weren't enough, Walled Lake Central beat rival Walled Lake Northern at home in a KLAA North boys game.
Indeed, it was a night nobody will forget.
