In a High Desert League boys basketball game at Frazier Mountain on Friday night, California City set a state record for points scored in a game.

The Ravens beat Frazier Mountain, 165-38, breaking a 24-year-old state record according to Cal-Hi sports editor Mark Tennis.

The previous record was by San Francisco-Balboa in a 156-82 win over San Francisco-O’Connell in January of 1993.

Five different players scored at least 24 points for Cal City, led by 28 apiece from Raymond Powell and Hubert Johnson. Jordan Mays scored 25, and Madetoneyo Mays and Cameron Jarmon each added 24.

Cal City is 20-5 this season and 8-0 in the HDL.

The defending Central Section Division V champions have scored more than 100 points six times, including a 118-63 win over Frazier Mountain on Jan. 16.

According to the National Federation of State High Associations (NFHS) record books, the 165 points is 13th-most all-time in the country.

That national record for points is 211 scored by De Quincy Grand Avenue in Louisiana in 1964, according to the NFHS.

WOW......sportsmanship? 127 points enough to win by? That's with a 4th quarter running clock also! This is terrible to say the least, I guess sportsmanship was ignored in this game!!
