Corey Fisher, (ESPN (blog)) — This is at least a day old now – you’ll have to forgive me, because I was looking for a rare case of food poisoning for most of the weekend – but it is a story that simply can not miss, thanks to a day or on the shelf.
The story is as follows: According to a variety of trusted sources, Villanova guard Corey Fisher scored – get ready here – 105 points in a league game in New York City summer. Yes, you read that correctly. A. Zero. Five.
One hundred and five points sounds like an urban legend, something created after years of word-of-mouth hype. Apparently not. Bounce Magazine, Dime, and NBADraft.net have confirmed the marker, and doctors have Hoop something like a box score to go along with it. Fisher attempted 28 3-point shots and made 23 of them, who scored 72 of his 105 in the second half. Defense is not exactly a priority for the showcase summer league games, but is the description of the Fisher game a frustrated opponent double-and triple-teaming Fisher in an attempt to get the ball from his hands. I guess it did not work.
Unfortunately, the data point missing here is the video. That tends to throw suspicion on the scoreboard, not nearly all basketball games in the world, including the summer league games and park, ultimately end up on YouTube? Nobody has a camera out during a performance of 105 points? Until you see the video, we will always take the worse. Such is the nature of the Internet in 2010.
So, yes, please note: This still could be a hoax. But I’m sure you do not want it to be. I want to be real, because I see it, and not vice versa.
