Chino Hills tied a state record last season with 18 games scoring 100 or more points. The Huskies are once again scoring points in large numbers even though Lonzo Ball has moved on to UCLA.

LiAngelo Ball finished with 56 points on Tuesday night in a 121-89 victory over Orange Lutheran at Corona Centennial. Chino Hills is two for two this season in reaching the century mark. LaMelo Ball had 21 points and 18 assists. Now that’s called brotherly love.

“What are you going to do?” Orange Lutheran Coach Chris Nordstrom said. “There were 207 possessions in the game. It’s a different look without Lonzo, but they’re really good. You have to play four quarters.”
