Wilt Chamberlain would be so proud. On Tuesday night Wayland Baptist University player J.J Culver (brother of Jarett, 2019 lottery pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves) put together a jaw-dropping 100-point performance.
Culver's outburst for the small college based in Plainview, Texas was certainly an interesting storyline, as the Senior was the leading scorer for his team by 92 points (somebody run the numbers on that usage rate).
Culver scored his team's first 42 points, in just 12 minutes, and ended up with an even 100 while shooting 34-of-62 from the field.
While it's unclear whether this will help Culver's NBA Draft stock at all, the feat is impressive nonetheless. His 27 free throw attempts in this contest were truly James Harden-esque, and it appears as if his whole team was on board with getting JJ to 100 points (at least, we hope so).
It seems like a team would really have to premeditate a performance like this one, considering how deferential Culver's teammates appeared to be in the box score. Culver took 62 of his team's 77 field goal attempts, and was responsible for all but 24 points from Wayland Baptist.
Whatever the case is, stories like this are why we love basketball. Now let's see what Jarrett Culver has in store for his team's game with the Utah Jazz tonight. There's no way he lets his big brother get away with all the attention for long.
