BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: O’Neal pours in school-record 44 points as CVA stays perfect


Senior Jaylon O’Neal set the Central Valley Academy boys basketball program record with 44 points in a game in Tuesday’s 82-57 win at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill in the Tri-Valley League.

The unbeaten Thunder led 42-19 at the half and used a 27-point fourth quarter to run away from the Red Devils.

O’Neal made 16 field goals plus a three-pointer and was 9-of-11 from the free throw line.

Deacon Judd scored 20. He had 30 points in a game earlier this season, which is likely the previous record, according to head coach Luke Judd. CVA’s program has been around for nine years. Before that, the schools that combined to form the district had their own records. Carson Murphy for Mohawk had 41 against Ilion in 2012 and Judd said Ilion’s record-holder was likely Herschel Ivey, who had multiple 50-point games around the same time.

“Jaylon was very opportunistic,” coach Judd said of the performance. “They ran a diamond and one defense against Deacon and it really opened things up for Jay on the drive. He was super efficient setting that record while only hitting one three pointer.”
