TYRONE GARLAND, a Class of 2010 Virginia Tech signee, had carried his team all season, averaging 25 ppg and becoming the third leading scorer in Philadelphia Public League scoring history. But on Tuesday night his amazing effort was not enough to bring home the championship to John Bartram High School. Bartram lost by a 58-46 score in the Public League Championship to Imhotep.
Garland had a huge game, though. Tyrone scored 32 of his teams 46 points! He hit 6 of 12 from behind the arc, but his teammates were just 5 for 37 from the field.
Bartram will continue on in the Pennsylvania State Tournament this weekend. Garland is closing in on Wilt Chamberlain, who currently sits in 2nd place on the Philly scoring list. Tyrone doesn’t have a realistic shot at #1 though, which is over 2,600. Garland is around 2,200 for his high school career right now.
