Redbank Valley sports history was made on January 14, 2019, when Senior Nick Smith scored a career high of 49 points in one basketball game.  Yes, 49 points!  In the game, Redbank Valley played Venango Catholic with a final score of 93-64.   Nick broke the previous record of 44 points that was held by Shawn Crissman against Moniteau in 1991. Nick is the first player since Sam Heeter (42 points against Clarion in 2016) to score more than 40 points in a game.

When asked at what time in the game he realized he would have a high score,  Nick said,  “Towards the end of the game when someone told me how many points I had.   Then I  looked at the clock, seeing I had a lot of time left.”  Once the team knew Nick had this opportunity, his teammates kept feeding him the ball, so he could take as many shots as possible.  Nick wants to thank his teammates because “they kept creating those  shots for me, and I couldn’t have done it without them for sure.”

Nick finished the game with a monster night from the three-point line going 7/15, 46.7%, and going 6/9 from the free throw line.  At the end of the game, Nick shot a percentage of  58.1%.  It is going to be great to see how the rest of Nick Smith’s season goes.
