    Allonzo Trier exploded for 64 points on Saturday night to lead NOAH to an 88-85 overtime basketball victory against Bartlesville (Okla.) - and he's only a sophomore.

    NOAH, based in Tulsa, Okla, stands for Northeast Oklahoma Association of Homeschools.

    The 6-foot-3, 183-pound guard established a career high and his point total also is believed to be a school record. He drilled 13-of-17 2-point shots, 7-of-15 3-point shots and 17-of-18 free throw attempts. He also had eight rebounds. He scored 40 of his points in the second half and six of his team's nine in overtime.

    Coach Chris Wallace told MaxPreps that Trier's big night "was kind of effortless. It didn't seem like he was working too hard. Whatever they did defensively, he was going to counter. I figured he had a 45-point game, 50 at the most."

    On Tuesday he made a dunk against Siloam Springs, Ark., that was so spectacular that it was shown on ESPN's SportsCenter.

    Last year Trier played for the Oklahoma City Storm, which was runner-up in the National Homeschool Tournament. He scored 1,043 points (22.7 average)as a  freshman.

    *Calvin Hermanson, a 6-6 senior, poured in a school-record 52 points as Lake Oswego (Lake Ore.) defeated Mark Morris (Longview, Wash.) 87-52. The Saint Mary's signee made 20-of-27 from the field and all eight of his free throw attempts.  The previous record of 50 points was set by current Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love.

    *Cody Miller scored a school-record 46 points to lead Seattle Christian (SeaTac, Wash.) to an 81-49 victory over Life Christian Academy (Tacoma, Wash.). He hit 19-of-27 shots in less than three quarters, while also amassing five rebounds, blocks and steals.

    *Beecher (Flint, Mich.) raised its winning streak to 33 games with a 65-49 victory over Ottawa Hills (Grand Rapids, Mich.). Mr. Basketball candidate Monte Morris was high scorer with 26 points.

    *Putnam City (Oklahoma City, Okla.) defeated Baldwin County (Bay Minette, Ala.) 52-35 to give coach A.D. Burtschi his 700th victory. He has won four state titles.

    *Christ Presbyterian Academy (Nashville, Tenn.) defeated Ballard (Louisville) 83-71 behind Jalen Lindsey's 44 points to win the King of the Bluegrass Tournament at Fairdale, Ky and up its winning streak to 36 games.
  • All-Star games rarely feature fouls or defense, but the two converged in the final seconds of the McDonald's All-American girls game Wednesday night at the United Center in Chicago.

    BaSharra Graves.

    With the score tied at 78-78, the East's Bashaara Graves (Clarksville, Tenn.) and the West's Katie Collier (Seattle Christian-SeaTac, Wash.) went after a rebound under the East basket. Collier seemed to tie up Graves, who desperately tried to get a shot up.

    As the final horn sounded, a referee called a foul on Collier. The refs put 0.3 second on and after Graves sunk the first one, she missed the second on purpose to preserve the East's 79-78 win. Collier had made two free throws with 16 seconds left to tie the game at 78-78.

    Baylor-signee Alexis Prince (Edgewater, Orlando, Fla.) was named the game's MVP with 15 points and nine rebounds. Teammate Breanna Stewart, the consensus National Player of the Year from Cicero-North Syracuse (Cicero, N.Y.), was held in check until the final four minutes when she scored seven of her nine points.

    The best player on the court all night was the West's Nirra Fields, a UCLA commit from Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.). She scored 14 of her 20 points in the second half and made nine of 11 shots. Her West teammate, Morgan Tuck of Bolingbrook (Ill.), add 18 points, 12 in the second half.

    Tuck and Stewart are headed to Connecticut, Graves is going to Tennessee and Collier is signed to Washington.
