    Looking for someone to help me with this.

    Had an HS game Wednesday night with final score of 130-123 in 2 OTs. Tied at 103 after regulation and 112 after first OT. Winning team also had a 102-95 regulation win about 10 days ago.

    Found a game in Philly in early 90s that was 130-127 in 4 OTs but I'm wondering if anyone knows of anything higher in a high school game.

    I watched a game that was one point away from making the boys list. Score was 130-125. In regulation.

    That's what happens when someone decides to take his team full of 5-10 guards and little else and installs the Grinnell system.

    The NFHS record book only considers games that were sent in by the state associations. If the state didn't fill out the paperwork, which happens often, then the game isn't listed.

    Doug Huff of Wheeling, WV keeps a more complete high school record book and can give you what you seek. I think he is still affiliated with the paper there.

    Geno Auriemma is confused as to why this would be a separate list.

    The Rhode Island record is, oh wait, there is none because the RIIL has forever been run by a group of morons.

    Lisa Leslie at Morningside of Inglewood, in the last game of the season in 1990, scored 101 points in the first half against South Torrance. Morningside led, 102–24, at halftime. South Torrance said "enough" and quit.

    Just back from a SoCal hoops game with a couple of old-school IE hoops coaches.

    That Poly-NoVi score was, I believe, the game in which Cheryl Miller scored 105.

    And I remember the Morningside-South Torrance game and I'm 99 percent sure that was a first-round PLAYOFF game because South Torrance quit at the half and the CIF-SS declared it a forfeit. And it might have been more like 102-6 or 102-4. But Morningside definitely scored triple digits in the first half.
