Kodiaks' Posthumus posts 69 points in game

  • Print
CHAD POSTHUMUS scored 69 points to help lead his River East Kodiaks varsity boys basketball team to a 99-75 victory over the Glenlawn Lions on Wednesday at John Taylor Collegiate in a semifinal game at the 38th annual Piper Classic tournament.

The 69 points are a lot, but would rank just fourth on an unofficial list pieced together from past newspaper accounts, as the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association keeps only team records, not individual statistics.

"It was kind of cool, but it's just good that we won, though," said Posthumus, whose team is ranked No. 7 in the province but is expecting that ranking to rise after the win over No. 2-ranked Glenlawn.

The unofficial single-game high school boys record for most points is 82 by Alex Keenan of the former Isaac Newton High School on Jan. 23, 1955.

The top post in the province, Posthumus is being courted by at least 17 Canadian and American universities, but he and the Kodiaks have their biggest challenge ahead of them.

The Kodiaks host the province's No. 1-ranked team and defending provincial champion Garden City Fighting Gophers, featuring the top point guard in the province, Jarred Ogungbemi-Jackson, on Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. at River East Collegiate.
