The NY Daily News this week profiled a phenomenally talented basketball player who scored 113 points in a game���and the name wasn���t Kobe Bryant. It was Epiphanny Prince---a member of the Murry Bergtraum High School women���s basketball team in Lower Manhattan. Not only did she make 54 of the 60 shots she took but she was also responsible for more than 82% of her team���s total points in a 137-32 rout.
What makes the story even more fascinating was the fact that Prince was on the verge of quitting the team the day before because of frustration over playing ���inferior competition.��� Her coach convinced her to stay and her Kobe-like effort was the result.
It does, though, beg an interesting question. Should Prince have been out on the floor so long in what was obviously a blowout? And should high school athletics have different objectives than say Kobe Bryant in a professional basketball game?
