UCLA’s Lonzo Ball has made headlines this season but ball runs in the family (not just as a surname) and his younger brother is coming for him.
Chino Hills High School five-star sophomore LaMelo Ball, the younger brother of the Bruins guard, went off for 92 points on Tuesday. He was 37-for-61 from the field overall and dished out seven assists to lead his team to a 146-123 win.
The win comes after Chino Hills lost for the first time in 61 games to Oak Hill on Saturday.
On Tuesday, LaMelo had 29 points at the half and according to ESPN, his father said in the second half, “He just went crazy.”
Lonzo acknowledged his youngest brother on Twitter saying, “That’s one way to bounce back after a loss.”
Well I mean that’s one way to bounce back after a loss… I see you lil bro 9️⃣2️⃣

Apparently, 92 points is a Ball family record. LaMelo and the middle Ball brother, LiAngelo, a senior at Chino Hills, are both committed to UCLA.
