The Maui News

Drew Triplett had one of most outstanding scoring performances in state history on Saturday afternoon, pouring in 53 points to lead the Maui Preparatory Academy boys basketball team to a 92-60 victory over Molokai at Lahainaluna’s gym.

Triplett had 18 field goals — including one 3-pointer — and was 16 of 17 from the free-throw line. His point total was the third-most ever in a Hawaii boys high school game, according to Jerry Campany of Hawaii Prep World and the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, behind only Saint Louis’ Jim Nicholson (in a 102-36 win over Mid-Pacific in 1966) and Howie Dunnam (in a 90-34 win over Damien in 1967).

Bennett Bluh had 17 points and James Falk added 15 for Na Pueo, who improved to 2-4 in Maui Interscholastic League play.

Owen Svetin led the Farmers (2-4) with 29 points.
