U.S. Boys Hoops Records Now Online

For several months, high school football fans have been able to log on to Student Sports and obtain the most up-to-date national records anywhere. Now, all of our high school boys basketball records are available in the same format. Robert Hughes from Dunbar High of Fort Worth, Texas has just won his 1,275th game as boys basketball coach. That makes him the winningest coach in national history, one in front of Hall of Famer Morgan Wootten. Who's No. 3 on the list? Then subscribe now!

From an individual perspective, Maureece Rice from Strawberry Mansion High of Philadelphia recently broke the city's career scoring record formerly held by the legendary Wilt Chamberlain. Where will Maureece wind up on the all-time national list?

The answers to these questions and many others can be answered only on studentsports.com web site. Why? Because, starting with this week's posting of the complete boys basketball national records section as compiled by Doug Huff, there is no other way to get instant national record updates in boys basketball.

Huff is the person who started compiling national records in boys basketball and football and his work is the foundation for the National Federation record book. The National Federation book is fine in its own right, but it is outdated as soon as its printed. The StudentSports.com national records section is updated as totals come in. The records section on the site, for example, is complete through the 2002 season, with entries for players like Jeremy Monceaux of Alabama and the Oklahoma duo of Kevin Bookout and Kelenna Azubuike. Check the section to see which famous player once held a record that Bookout broke. The site also already lists Hughes in front of Wootten.

Other features from our 2002 Student Sports National High School Boys Basketball Record Book are included in the records section on the site. We can't guarantee that every record, like the one Hughes just broke, will be updated that fast. But it sure will be faster than waiting for a book to be printed.

If you're already a subscriber (or a non-subscriber who wants to join) and haven't check out the records, you can do so by going to the left-hand Navigation bar and hitting the link titled "National Records" under the heading "Boys and Girls Hoops."
