    Go with:

    "The previous record was 16+/-."
    Could throw in a "more or less" or an "ish" to cover all the bases.
    That way you're safe.

    Here's an odd stat: Had a team tonight in 2A that had two — count 'em, two — turnovers.

    Found this in Illinois.. that state's record is 16; not sure if its a national record...

    *[1.] 16, Andy Thomas, Sycamore vs. Geneva, Jan. 29, 1993 (16 of 29)

    And in Kentucky, the record is 17

    The national record for 3-pointers in a single game is 24 by Taurean Moy of Memphis Booker T. Washington vs. Memphis Manassas on 12-5-2000.

    I saw Chris Jackson (Gulfport, Miss.) hit nine 3-pointers in one quarter when he was in high school, including one on each of eight consecutive trips down the floor. The player guarding him, a state high jump champion in Louisiana, did everything he could, and Jackson still put the moves on him and got off the shot every time, each one seemingly on a higher arc than the previous.

    There's only about 1,250 public high schools playing basketball in the state. No telling how many more private schools and home-school teams are out there, but I would expect the number to be at least half that, probably more.

    Then there's the fact that basketball is still an afterthought -- if not a dirty word -- in much of the state.

    Here is one paper's take on the Texas kid:


    Also, I agree with pressboxer, trying to find any information on basketball in the state of Texas can be an utter disaster.
    A lot of coaches don't even know their records and just want their teams to lose so they can get on to spring football already.
