The Chino Hills High School sophomore and UCLA commit’s scoring included seven 3-pointers with 41 of his points scored in the fourth eight-minute quarter.
The 146-123 win over Los Osos came after the team’s first loss in 61 games, according to ESPN.
Ball dedicated the game to his classmate Alexis Anderson, who is currently in the hospital in need of an immediate heart transplant, according to USA Today. Her father Todd Anderson tweeted Tuesday that she is being kept alive by a heart and lung machine.

Ball, 6’2’’ with Odell Beckham frosted tips, told ESPN’s Myron Medcalf he was encouraged by his teammates throughout the game to continue scoring in support of their classmate.
While 92 points seems astonishing, the Ball family is no stranger to success. LaMelo is the younger brother of Lonzo Ball a freshman making headlines at UCLA. Their middle brother LiAngelo is a senior at Chino Hills, also committed to UCLA, who scored 72 points in a game earlier this season, ESPN says.
Lonzo showed his support for baby bro on twitter after the win.
