After dropping 52 points in his senior season opener it would be understandable if Dontaie Allen couldn’t top that performance in game No. 2. 52 points is a tough total at any level, but especially high school basketball where there isn’t a shot clock and the games are only 32 minutes.
And after his second game 52 points is yesterday’s news. The future Cat dropped 53 against Scott. Allen’s Pendleton County fell 83-73 but it was a close contest.
Part of that 53-point performance was this shot heading into the half:

Allen was the Mr. Basketball favorite heading into the season and his odds are even better after two games.
I can’t wait to watch this kid play at Kentucky and kudos to John Calipari and UK’s staff for getting a commitment from Allen this summer. Allen signed during the early signing period.
