Corey Fisher Drops 105 Points In Game

The streets were talking all week, telling a remarkable tale of an unprecedented scoring outburst in the Bronx (though, truth be told, there have too many 60+ outburst this summer to count). As we knew at the SLAM dome from some readers at the scene of the BX crime, turns out the talk was warranted. Dana O’Neil has specifics: “It’s true. The Legend of Corey Fisher has been affirmed. The Villanova guard said he did, in fact, score 105 points in a summer-league game, confirming the message board and Twitter-fed buzz circling the past week.  ‘I kept scoring and people kept yelling,’ Fisher said. ‘I had 72 after the third quarter and I just kept scoring and scoring. I didn’t realize I was near 100 and then I go to the free throw line and people started going crazy.’ Fisher’s Wilt Chamberlain moment came during a Watson Basketball Classic Summer League game in the Bronx. He swears there was defense — ‘double-team, box-and-one, zone, man,’ he said — and can’t recall the final score but knows he did break ‘someone’s record.’

“The someone is Fly Williams, the streetball legend who helped coin the unforgettable Austin Peay chant — ‘Fly is open; let’s go Peay!’ Williams dropped 100 during an IS8 League game in Jamaica, Queens in 1978.”
