23 in Game #13, a last-minute win (Raffa missed two late free throws, then made the winning shot):

 

http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/sports/...p-6977796c.html

 

Some quotes:

 

“This is my team,” Raffa said. “I can't put us down like that. I knew that couldn't be it.”

 

“I'm a big-time player going against a big-time team, and I had to get it done,” Raffa said. “They gave me the lane, and I just took it.”

I don't know anything about NJ HS basketball. Where I live we've got six classifications of high schools. In AAAAAA anyone averaging in the high 20s (who can breathe, read, and write) is going to a big time program. Class A players who average 30 may not even play college ball.

 

What kind of competition is Raffa facing?

I'm not sure you can go completely by enrollment to judge the quality of opponent in some of those cases. Two of the Class B schools, St Patrick and St. Anthony were recently ranked in USA Today as the #4 and #6 teams in the country and I'm pretty sure Raffa's Wildwood Catholic team played St. Patricks in the playoffs last year. Also the St. Augustine Prep that Raffa had 45 against earlier this year sends players to Division I on a fairly routine basis.

Game #14, another 'W'. Also, it looks like Raffa is making an effort to ensure that his average does not dip below 30:

 

WILDWOOD CATHOLIC 82, BRIDGETON 67

 

Anthony Raffa notched a game-high 31 points for the Crusaders. Teammate Pat Kelly added 16 in the win.

 

Roger Loatman was the high scorer for the Bulldogs, recording 19 points. Steve Fortune had two 3-pointers and ended the game with 15 points.

 

Bridgeton 13 19 18 17 — 67

 

Wildwood Catholic 22 22 23 15 — 82

 

B — Fortune 6 1-4 15, Loatman 7 5-7 19, Bunton 6 0-0 12, Young 5 0-0 10, Orr, 1 0-0 2, Stubbs 3 0-0 6. Totals: 28 9-16 67.

 

W — Raffa 12 6-10 31, Haas 3 2-3 8, Hindelang 4 5-8 13, Kelly 5 5-6 16, Garriott 2 0-0 4, Smith 3 2-2 8, Miller 0 2-2 2. Totals: 29 22-31 82.

 

3-pointers — Fortune (2) B; Raffa, Kelly W.

 

RECORDS — Wildwood Catholic 11-3, Bridgeton 5-8.

When I look at his stats the amazing thing about Raffa is he's putting up video-game like numbers while shooting over 50% from the floor. Amazig because you know other teams have to be keying on him. He's close to passing his conference's scoring average of 30.8 PPG set by Lamarr Greer who went on to Florida State.

 

Big game tonight for Wildwood Catholic in a rematch with St. Augustine.

DP, Any idea what kind of competition he is playing against? Is he playing against D3 talent or is he being challenged.
