Ball drops 92

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

CHINO HILLS, CALIF. — LaMelo Ball, the younger brother of UCLA’s star fresh­man Lonzo Ball, scored 92 points — 41 in the fourth quar­ter — to help Chino Hills beat Los Osos 146-123 on Tues­day night.

He only had 29 points at half­time. He made 37 of 61 shots from the floor, in­clud­ing 7 of 22 from be­hind the 3point line, hit 11 of 14 free throws and had seven as­sists and five re­bounds.

Their other brother LiAn­gelo, who leads Chino Hills in scor­ing, sat out be­cause of an an­kle in­jury. LaMelo and LiAn­gelo are both com­mit­ted to UCLA like their older brother Lonzo, who is pro­jected to be a top-five pick in the 2017 NBA draft.

Chino Hills (26-1) had won 60 straight games be­fore los­ing to Oak Hill Acad­emy last Satur­day — in which LaMelo scored 36 points.

Lonzo tweeted: “Well I mean that’s one way to bounce back af­ter a loss ... I see you lil bro.”
