Xavier School's Jeron Teng scores 104 points

World Youth Games veteran Jeron Teng shattered all existing records in high school division by exploding for 104 points in leading three-time defending champion Xavier School to a 164-74 romp over Grace Christian College in the Freego Tiong Lian Basketball Association tournament Wednesday at the Xavier gym.

The 6-foot-1 son of former San Miguel Beer bruiser Alvin Teng was almost unstoppable from the shaded lane he finished with an impressive 37-of-70 shooting from the field he capped with a triple in 35 minutes of action as the Golden Stallions gained a piece of the lead with St. Jude Catholic School at 3-0.

Teng’s feat did no only obliterate the league’s record of 64 points set by former Xavier hotshot Eric Yao during the 1998 season but also bettered the existing records both in the NCAA and UAAP leagues.

Former Jose Rizal University star Joshua Saret owns the NCAA record with 89 points which he established in the team’s 171-43 massacre of Angeles Foundation two years ago while Far Eastern University star Terrence Romero, who is now playing for the seniors squad, had an 83 points in the team’s 104-55 victory over University of the Philippines Integrated School on Aug. 18 also two years ago.

For the third straight game, Teng, who is also being eyed by several collegiate teams in the UAAP, finished in double-double with 24 boards, 20 of them offensively, to earn another Freego of the Game award.

He was also equally sharp from the free throw area as he made 29 of 34 tries in the tournament supported by Welcoat, Orocan, Puma, Fern-C, Bantex, PG-Flex, Molten, Healthy Options, Bow & Wow, Burlington, MEC Computer, Converse, Davis Paints, Gold's Gym and Absolute.
