Diminutive Maryland sophomore scores 57 points in win

Patterson (Md.) High sophomore Aquille Carr is listed at 5-foot-8, but most close to the highly touted recruit insist he's much closer to 5-foot-6, at best. Yet that height, and his relatively meager 140 pounds, have yet to hold the guard back from dumping in extraordinary amounts of points, a trait most recently witnessed at a tournament over the holiday break, when the underclassman scored a whopping 57 points in a 103-71 Bill Miller Christmas Classic championship game rout of Forest Park (Md.) High.

As you can see in the clip above, Carr has no shortage of ways to score. He occasionally drops in an awfully pretty assist, too.

It's worth noting that the team Carr carved up in this video isn't some 0-for-the-season crew of also-rans. Rather, Forest Park is ranked just outside the Top 10 among the best teams in Maryland by the Baltimore Sun, and was 6-2 on the season after the loss to Patterson.

"To score 57 points is an incredible effort at this level," Patterson coach Harry Martin told the Sun.

By game's end, Carr hit seven threes and was 12 of 15 from the free-throw line. He also helped fellow Patterson sophomore star Myrek Lee-Fowlkes to 20 points of his own.

Even for a highly hyped player like Carr, 57 points is an incredible haul. Who knows if he'll pull off similar marks anytime soon, but the odds are that with his physique and incredibly exciting ball handling, there will be plenty of people filling gym seats to see if he does.
