The YMCA Capital City League is known for players putting up ridiculous stat lines that could never happen in a Big 12 game. That is exactly what happened on Friday night but even so, what Jameel McKay did was incredibly impressive.
The transfer out of Marquette grabbed a record 32 rebounds to go with his 31 points in the YMCA’s 137-107 win over Phoenix Renewable Resources. The former record was set by Aliou Keita, of Drake who once had 27 in a game.
McKay’s teammate, Oregon State transfer Hallice Cooke, scored 33 points with 11 assists and nine rebounds in the win too.
Opposite of that tandem, Naz Long led the way for Phoenix with 28 points, six rebounds and six assists. Daniel Edozie chipped in with 18.
Custer continues to impress
Clayton Custer (pictured below) has now led his team in scoring during the first three nights of CCL competition. The true freshman dropped 42 on Friday night while going an efficient 20-for-25 from the field. Custer also dished out eight assists to go with seven rebounds. His teammate, Abdel Nader, had 19 points and 12 rebounds in a 122-116 loss to Renaissance Granite.
That’s because Georges Niang was unstoppable. The potential All-American dropped 55 points in route to a victory. Iowa State walk-on Kourtlin Jackson scored 26 points for Renaissance Granite.
Hogue hits six 3-pointers
Dustin Hogue buried six 3-pointers and scored 42 points in Coca-Cola’s two-point loss to ADIO Chiropractic. Along with Hogue, Sherron Dorsey-Walker scored 25 points in the loss.
