Ray Allen Achieves A Career High

Posted Jan 15, 2007


Most kids these days are all about Lebron and Kobe but many South Carolina kids don't realize one of the NBA's best is actually from the Palmetto State. Ray Allen starred at Hillcrest Dalzell High School and now is raining jumpers on the best in the NBA averaging over 25 points each time out. Come inside for the latest on Ray Allen including a career high just last week.

If you were privileged enough to watch Ray Allen play basketball for Hillcrest Dalzell High School in the early 90's then you saw it then. What you saw was one of the sweetest jumpers to grace the Palmetto state in many years. Connecticut head coach Jim Calhoun saw it and off to the northern region of the country Allen went. It was there that Allen dazzled the rest of the nation with his ability to score with the best of them and before you knew it he was off early to the NBA.

It's been 10 plus years since he first entered the NBA but Allen is easily one of the best two guards in the league and for proof of that you have to look no further than his game last Friday night. Allen torched the Utah Jazz for a career high 54 points and added 10 boards and 5 assists for good measure in the overtime victory for the Supersonics. Allen's coach Bob Hill had this to say about the former SC standout, "Ray's performance was one of the finest most people here tonight have ever seen." Utah head coach Jerry Sloan pretty much agreed saying this about Allen, "I'd say he was terrific. I don't know if it can get any better."

On the season Allen is averaging 25.8 points per game and is probably going to make another appearance for the Western Conference All-Stars once again this year.

SCPrepNation.com will have more updates on former Hillcrest Dalzell High star Ray Allen and all of the former Palmetto State products hooping it up in the NBA as the season goes on so stay tuned.
