Knott County Central sophomore Camron Justice poured in a tournament record 62 points in the Patriots' 95-93 loss to Cincinnati Roger Bacon in a consolation game of the Republic Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic on Sunday night.
Justice, a 6-foot-2 point guard, said minutes after the game he had no idea he had scored so many points.
"I just got hot," Justice said. "And I kept trying to get buckets for my team."
Justice was 19-for-29 from the field, including 8-for-11 three-pointers. He made 16 of 19 free throws.
Raymond Justice, Camron's father and a Knott Central assistant coach, was unaware of his son's feat. When told after the game that Camron had scored 62, dad's response was "No way."
Justice's previous career high was 45 against Buckhorn in the finals of the WYMT tournament last season.
