Last night 5- star recruit Romeo Langford dropped 22 points in the second quarter in an away game against the Jennings County Cougars. While this is more than most regular high school players score in a whole game, Langford finished with a new career-high 63 points.

Langford had a fairly slow start in the first quarter (by his standards anyway), finishing the period with just seven points. The 22-point second quarter is what launched Langford into shattering his own school record by 15 points. With six minutes left in the second quarter NAHS was up by just six points. Then the Bulldogs star got hot and that is what fueled the team to a 28-4 run in just the last six minutes of the second quarter. New Albany had a more than comfortable 30 point lead going into the half.

Jennings County played well in the third, scoring 17, but Langford continued his outstanding play as well as the rest of the team. The Bulldogs dropped 23 and increased to a 73-37 lead. The fourth quarter was more of the same as New Albany continued to grow their lead as ended the game with a 102-52.

The record-breaking night puts Langford closer to one of the biggest records in Indiana, the state scoring record. Last night’s effort moved him up the list to fourth on the Indiana all-time scoring list with 2,652. In order to break this record Langford will need to beat Damon Bailey’s record of 3,134. The Bulldogs will be back in action February 3 in a conference game against Columbus East. JV tipoff is at 12:30 p.m.
