In case you missed it Saturday night or Sunday morning, Rockbridge County senior Andrew Rowsey scored 60 points in a 117-87 victory over Stuarts Draft in the consolation game of the Spotswood Invitational in Penn Laird.
Rowsey left the game with 6:53 to play after spraining his ankle. He is expected to play Friday at Amherst County but he will miss at least one practice this week.
The breakdown on Rowsey’s night — which broke his own single-game school record of 47 points — is as follows: 15 points in the first quarter, 21 points in the second quarter, 18 points in the third quarter and six points in the fourth quarter.
The 5-foot-11 senior guard hit 24 of 33 shots from the field and was 5 of 10 from 3-point range.
Rowsey has scored 120 points in three games and has 1,826 for his career. Rockbridge has a minimum of 20 games remaining in 2012-13. If Rowsey plays in just 20 more games he would need to average more than 43 points per game the rest of the way to eclipsed the VHSL career scoring record of 2,687 set by Stacy Ervin of Twin Springs in 1997.
