We knew Kentucky commit Dontaie Allen was a great scorer, and he is showing it early on in his senior year at Pendleton County High School.
Allen, an early candidate for Kentucky Mr. Basketball, followed up a career-high 52 points in his season opener with a 53-point performance last night. Allen scored 53 of his team’s 73 points in a 83-76 loss at Scott last night.
Expect to see several of these type of games from Allen, though his freakishly hot start will probably mean opposing teams will spend more time double-teaming him in the future. Nonetheless, he’s a really talented player and its exciting to have him locked in to the 2019 class as he plays out his senior season in the Bluegrass State.
If you have the opportunity, go check out Allen play in person during the high school season. You can find Pendleton County’s full basketball schedule here, courtesy of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.
In case you missed it, here are some highlights from Allen’s performance last night.
