Talk about making it rain. Scott Meredith hit 18 threes as he led Hargrave Military Academy (Chatham, Va.) to a 131-80 win.
Meredith is a 5-foot-11 guard at Hargrave, the prep school in Virginia where Josh Howard, David West, and Jordan Crawford have played. Meredith played high school ball in North Carolina before attending the postgraduate academy.
His 55-point performance Thursday set a school record.
“He was just on fire,” coach A.W. Hamilton told MaxPreps. “He hit three or four in a row to start and I told our guys we were going to ride this thing until he cools down. He really never did."
Hamilton added that Meredith's skills go beyond what he can do on the court.
“The kid has a 5.0 GPA and he’s never made a B in his life," the coach said. "He’s fun to be around, just a special person.”
Hargrave has broken the 100-point mark 16 times this season en route to a 29-5 record. Four of Meredith's teammates have already signed to play with Division 1 programs next year; MeredithRead More »from Teen hits 18 threes as he leads team to 131-80 win
