Terry Rozier goes off for 68 points

Future University of Louisville guard Terry Rozier put on a show Saturday night at Iroquois High School in the Louisville HoopFest presented by Body Shapes Medical and Cardinal Authority. Rozier scored a school-record 68 points in a double overtime win by Chatham, Va., Hargrave Military Academy.

Terry Rozier didn't start the game, he didn't arrive in Louisville until two hours before tip off and played with a sore ankle that had him sidelined for a week.

But he still put on a show.

The future University of Louisville guard hit 19 of 37 from the field, including 8 of 14 three-point field goals, and finished with a school-record 68 points as Hargrave Military Academy outlasted Action Sports Academy 139-135 in double overtime during the final game of the Louisville HoopFest presented by Body Shapes Medical and Cardinal Authority at Iroquois High School.

"Unreal," Hargrave coach A.W. Hamilton described it. "Just unreal."

Added Rozier, who was 22 of 24 from the free-throw line: "I never did anything like that in my life but it sure feels good, especially in front of my future fans. My teammates believed in me and we got the job done."

Rozier also had 11 rebounds, five assists and four steals in the game, playing before a packed house of U of L fans.

U of L signee Anton Gill finished with 28 points and 11 assists and said on a night like that, "we just had to get (Rozier) the ball."

Rozier, who is originally from the Cleveland area and was playing in front of his mother, grandmother and a bunch of other family members, had scored a career-high 50 points earlier in the season.

But Gill then surpassed that with a school-record 56 a few weeks later and Gill also hit for 50 points on Monday night.

Rozier didn't even start against Action Sports Academy and only scored 13 points in the first half. But that didn't matter. He caught fire in the second half, scored 20 in the first nine minutes and had 50 after regulation.

"It felt pretty good when I got going," Rozier said.

Rozier played in front of U of L assistant coach Kevin Keatts and current U of L players Peyton Siva, Chane Behanan, Zach Price, Mangok Mathaing and Montrezl Harrell, who prior to this season had the Hargrave scoring record with 51.
