Quinton Adlesh turned in a historic triple-double, scoring 50 points to go along with 11 rebounds and 10 assists as the Mission Prep boys basketball team beat St. Joseph 86-72 on Wednesday night in Santa Maria.
Adlesh, a senior point guard who will play at Columbia, made 15 field goals — 5 3-pointers — and was 15 of 17 from the foul line.
“I haven’t seen a performance quite like that,” Mission Prep coach Terrance Harris said. “He’s had some special games for us before, but I’ve never seen anything like this.”
According to LuckyShow.org, which lists California prep boys basketball scoring performances of 45 points or greater, Adlesh is the third player in San Luis Obispo County history to reach the 50-point marker.
