(Avoca) Lee Whyte scored 40 points in an AHST boys basketball win Monday night.
AHST downed Nishnabotna 67-37 in non-conference play to improve to 8-3 on the year.
Whyte's season-high came on 14-25 shooting from the floor and 12-14 from the free throw line. It's the second highest single game total for any Class 1A player this season. In addition to his big night scoring, Whyte also set new single game season bests for rebounds (14) and steals (6).
Coach GG Harris says he's not sure yet if that's a school record or not. He plans on doing some researching when he gets time today.
Whyte and teammate Steven Jacobsen, who scored 16 points and had 10 rebounds, combined for over 83% of the team's offensive production in the win. The Vikings will be back in action Tuesday night when they travel to Riverside.
