HOUSTON - Marc-Anthony Batts didn't think he was going to get the ball.
As he streaked down the far side of the court on a fast-break, with 99 points already on the scoreboard, Batts saw the court-length pass from Chuks Isitua go towards the basket. Underneath it was Darryl Brown, who caught it in the middle of the paint, while back-pedaling.
Brown's trajectory was going to take him out of bounds. So, instead of putting up an ill-advised shot directly under the basket he tossed it to Batts.
The Jack Yates Lions are the "Brand" name of Houston high school basketball.
The Lions have scored 100-points in 15 consecutive games to tie the national record. The record is held by... the Jack Yates 2010 team, which is thought to be the school's all-time team. Yates ended up winning the state tournament that season.
Yates (18-3) will face Scarborough (4-15) Tuesday night at 7 pm at Pavilion Stadium with history on the line.
So, who are these Yates Lions?
