High school point guard Ahmed Ali, who plays for John Polyani Institute, a high school in Ontario, racked up 103 points yesterday against CW Jefferson in the Ontario Prep League. He reportedly hit 23 threes, including 5 from half-court. He had 55 after the half. Check out the video above for some very short footage of his performance.
Ali, who graduates in 2016, is currently ranked in the top-50 for Canadian high school players, according to northpolehoops.com. Ali plays with flash and has a deft touch from distance—and he’s still uncommitted for next season.
“After the first half, I started taking stats, I felt something special was going to happen,” explained his Prep Head Coach Adeel Sahibzada.
He shot approximately 50-60% from the field for the game, according to Sahibzada.
The kid’s a scoring machine. He gave 35 to Thon Maker’s (the No. 1-ranked player in Canada) team earlier in the year. In June, he dropped 48 points against VCU commit Marquel Fraser’s (No. 5-ranked player in Canada) squad. A few months later, he had 46 points against Ohio Basketball Club and 44 against Sphere, including the game-winning shot.

“He’s a microwave, he can definitely go off; you have to be discipline against him. If you’re not, he’s going to burn you,” explained Coach Mike Chmliewski of Sphere.
“They tried box and one, double teaming, diamond (1-3-1) and 3-2 zone defense,” [Sahibzada] continued.
“He kept going further and further.”
Ali joins Denham Brown (111 points, 2002) as the only Canadian ever to score over 100+ points in a high school basketball game.
Ali outscored CW Jefferson by himself. The game’s final score was 111-76.
