High School Basketball Star Brandon Gibson Sets New Scoring Record

Brandon Gibson, a Monterey Trail High School senior guard, has etched his name in Elk Grove Unified School District's history with a staggering 51-point game against River City of West Sacramento, thus setting a new school record. This feat stands as one of the most remarkable scoring nights in the district's history, particularly for The Bee's Top 20 teams this season.

Unprecedented Efficiency On Court

What made Gibson's performance extraordinary was not just the points he scored but the efficiency with which he did so. Gibson made an impressive 22 of 30 shots from the field, including 6 out of 10 three-pointers, all within less than 30 minutes of play. Beyond his scoring prowess, he also tallied 10 steals, 11 rebounds, and four assists, demonstrating his well-rounded capabilities on the court.

A Comparision With The Past, A Promise For The Future

Such a performance draws inevitable comparisons to the feats of Bill Cartwright, who set regional scoring records nearly 50 years ago at Elk Grove High School. Gibson's success is all the more notable because of the hurdles he has overcome. After missing most of his freshman and sophomore years due to injuries, including a torn left knee ligament, he has bounced back to become a key player for his team. Currently, he is averaging 24.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game, leading The Bee's No. 2-ranked team.

More Than Just A Player

College recruiters, including Sacramento State coaches, are taking notice of Gibson's athleticism and versatility. But Gibson is more than just an athlete. He is recognized for his strong work ethic, which he credits to his parents' influence. Despite his personal success, he remains a team player, focused on winning a section championship. His potential scholarship to study kinesiology is another testament to his multifaceted personality.
