Terry Rozier Scores 68 Points At Last Night’s Louisville HS HoopFest

Rozier picYesterday was arguably the worst performance of the season for Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals as they dropped their third game in a row to Georgetown 53-51. While the current Cardinals were a disappointment yesterday, that certainly wasn’t the case for future Louisville guards Terry Rozier and Anton Gill.

Rozier and Gill of Hargrave Military Academy participated in last night’s Louisville High School Hoop Fest at Iroquois High School. Hargrave was a 139-135 double overtime winner against Action Sports Academy.

Future Cardinal Terry Rozier put together one of the most impressive individual performances ever seen in the city of Louisville. Rozier finished with 68 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and four steals. He was 22-of-24 from the free throw line and 8-of-14 from three-point range. 55 of Rozier’s 68 points came in the second half. He didn’t even start the game and had just 13-points at halftime.

While Rozier’s stat line will get the majority of the attention, fellow Louisville signee Anton Gill also had a very impressive performance, finishing with 28 points and 11 assists. Rozier’s 68-points were a Hargrave Military Academy record. Gill broke the record earlier in the season scoring 56 points. Before this season the record as held by current Louisville freshman Montrezl Harrell who scored 51-points in game last season.
