Elijah Fisher 75 Points Sets New Canadian Prep Basketball Scoring Record

In what will go down as one of the best Canadian high school basketball performances of all-time, top-ranked 2023 Canadian guard Elijah Fisher (Oshawa, Ontario) reminded everybody why he’s got next, dropping a cold-blooded 75 points to set an Ontario Scholastic Basketball (OSBA) scoring record.

Correction: They might have to retake the photo and redo all the fancy social media graphics. After carefully reviewing footage of the record setting game, it has become apparent that Elijah Fisher actually scored 75 points instead of the reported 74 points. The discrepancy can be found when comparing the video of the game with the manually inputted box score. Unfortunately, the score crew failed to record a made free-throw by Fisher with 9:00 minutes on the clock in the second-quarter. Fisher, actually scored 23 points in the second-quarter instead of the 22 points displayed on the stat-sheet. Here is a twitter thread with further analysis and details.

In a raw display of sheer physical prowess not seen since the early days of Andrew Wiggins, 17-year-old, six-foot-seven guard Elijah Fisher (Oshawa, Ont.) exploded for a career-high 75 points to lead Toronto’s Crestwood Prep Lions 119-102 past Burlington’s New Horizon Academy in a historic Ontario Scholastic Basketball (OSBA) regular season match-up on Wednesday evening in North York.

Fisher capped off what will go down as one of the best Canadian high school basketball performances of all-time, by scoring 28 points in the final-quarter, including 12 points in the last 3 minutes and 40 seconds to set the OBSA scoring record.

Once it was all set and done, the five-star Canadian guard pulled down eight rebounds, added three assists, two blocks and one steal in the winning effort. Fisher knocked down 24-of-40 (60%) field-goal attempts, 8-of-15 (53.3%) three-pointers and 19-of-26 (73.1%) from the foul-line while playing the entire 40 minutes.

Despite committing four of his five turnovers early on, Fisher scored 10 of Crestwood’s 18 first-quarter points on 3-of-7 shots, 1-of-3 triples and 3-of-6 from the charity stripe. New Horizon’s timely ball movement and sharp three-point shooting put them ahead 33-18 after the first ten minutes.

A three-ball from the visitors, to open-up the second-quarter, stretched the margin to a game-high 18 points at 36-18. Looking to speed up the tempo of the contest, Crestwood Prep turned to their potent full-court press, in the process activating Fisher’s fast break offence as New Horizon was forced into rushed possessions and multiple turnovers.

Fisher completely took over the game.

Operating from the high-post, the combo-guard continuously attacked the paint and either scored or got fouled, dropping 23 points on 7-of-13 field goal attempts, 1-of-2 triples and 8-of-11 trips to the foul-line. As the half-time whistle sounded, Crestwood found themselves leading 54-51 on a late put-back basket by rising prospect Zaiden Cross.

Fisher’s half-time stat-line, 33 points, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 1 deflection and 5 turnovers on 10-of-20 field goals attempts, 2-of-5 three-pointers, and 11-of-17 free-throw in 20 minutes.

Fisher has been on a tear since taking his first official NCAA basketball visit to Texas Tech. The Red Raiders have recruited Fisher the longest and are amongst the top heavyweights looking to land the next Canadian phenom.

The explosive guard has scored a combined total of 183 points over his last four contests (75, 29, 37, 42,) good for an absurd 45.7 points per game.
