Most Total Points in a game by two teams

S. defeated West Philadelphia H.S. 130-127 in four overtimes for a total of 257 combined points. Shannon Bussey led Washington with 44 points while Derrick Johnson led West Philly with 34 points. However, those 257 points only ranked ninth on the all-time list according to the National Federation of State High School Associations Record Book. The highest scoring game in high school history took place in Florida in 1995 when Riverview defeated Bradenton148-142 for a combined 290 points.  (Daily Press, 2/4/98)

-Feb 2011, Norwin defeated Latrobe, 115-110, in one overtime. 225 points in one game.Incredible stuff. Norwin's 6-5 senior Matt Palo had 43 points and 6-2senior Andy Carter 37. In three decades of covering WPIAL basketball, I (Mike White) don't ever remember a regular-season game where both teams scored more than 100. I'm not saying it never happened. But if it did, someone out here let me know. (MIDDLE ATLANTICSPORTS NEWS, Jerry Shenk)

 

Most Points scored by a team in one game
215-Kentucky  Jackson City,  vs Lexington Woodbridge Academy (215-28)
(Score by Half’s - 112 and 103),  February 10, 1992
211-Louisiana DeQuincy Grand Avenue vs Cameron Audrey Memorial, LA. (211-29)  (1/29/64)
198-Louisiana  W.O. Boston High School  198- 34, (1976).
   (the question is, was it against  Lawtell High or Grand Chenier South Cameron H.S.)
" I played in that game on the losing end. The score is correct. You  questioned which team took that beating. It was South Cameron High School in Creole, Louisiana (technically the Oak Grove community, but there is a  larger Oak Grove in Louisiana, so most newspapers refer to South Cameron being in Creole). The school and the community were wiped out in Hurricane Rita. I doubt you would want it, but we probably have an article about that game."    James M.

Breaking the Backboard
Chuck Connors is one of only twelve athletes in history to have played for both Major League Baseball and in the NBA. Connors is credited with being the first professional basketball player to break a backboard. Connors jumped center and smashed the glass backboard in the first-ever Boston Celtics game on Nov. 5, 1946 at Boston ArenaBut he was best known as "Lucas McCain" in the ABC television Western series The Rifleman (1958-1963).
Darryl Dawkins (Philadelphia 76ers), nicknamed "Chocolate Thunder"-In a game against the Kansas City Kings in November 1979 Dawkins threw down such a massive dunk that the backboard shattered into a thousand tiny shards, sending the Kings’ Bill Robinzine ducking for cover and amazing a nation of fans. Three weeks later he did it again. A few days after that the NBA ruled that breaking a backboard was an offense that would result in a fine and suspension.  Dawkins has the record for most personal fouls committed in a season, with 386 in 1984, which is seven more than his 379 fouls the previous year, which ranks second all time.  He later was the head coach of the Allentown, Pennsylvania-based Pennsylvania ValleyDawgs of the United States Basketball League until they folded.  (Credit: Wikipedia)
