Not that it needs to be justified with a response...however I will provide one...
I can only speak for the game I know of...
Jordan Henry had 61 points and probably more than 20 assists. We don't have the ability to track assists and the other categories yet. The realities of the game were this:
1. The entire team had been decimated by the flu, including the Head Coach who was absent, and 4 of the players including 2 starters and 2 rotational players.
2. As Coach Clement said indeed we were short benched and had to bring up two juniors for the game-who did in fact play at least half of the game and they were Gr 9's. However because of the short bench and lack of players we had to do so.
3. At no time were players specifically passing to Jordan or was he trying to "get" that many points. Jordan has always been focused on team basketball, it's one of his shining qualities.
4. Jordan was also subbed in and out of the game
As a coach, you can do things to ensure that you play with a sense of class, take off the press, try and work on rotations and sets, and be humble on the court. All of these things were done. You can't tell a team to not score??? What does that say? We have to remember Jordan is a member of the JMNT and playing on home soil...if someone would like for us to arrange a game where he scores 200 points it CAN be done. But as mentioned above, that is not the point of basketball. The point is to compete, learn, work hard and respect your teammates and opponents.
