Chino Hills standout LaMelo Ball—the younger brother of UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball—dropped 92 points in a 146-123 win over Los Osos High School on Tuesday night, per Big Baller Brand.

The UCLA commit acknowledged his achievement with a postgame message on Twitter:

As if his point total wasn't impressive enough, Ball was also efficient to a remarkable degree on a night when he scored 63 points in the second half, per ESPN.com's Jeff Borzello.

According to a box score provided by Southern California News Group's Tommy Kiss, Ball shot 30-of-39 on two-point attempts and 7-of-22 on threes. He was also 11-of-14 from the line and added seven assists and five rebounds for good measure.

And as BallIsLife noted in a video breakdown, 41 of Ball's points came in the fourth quarter:

Following the win, Chino Hills head coach Stephan Gilling referred to Ball's performance as "very exciting, almost overwhelming," according to the Los Angeles TimesEric Sondheimer.
