Lamont Robinson of Eastern Alamance High School enjoyed a great four-year career and has earned a couple of spots in the men’s basketball section of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state record book.
Robinson finished his career with 2,288 career points, good for 17th place on the all-time NCHSAA career scoring list. He averaged 25.1 points per game as a senior and had a four-year career scoring average of 20.4 points per game.
He attempted a whopping 675 free throws in his career, which is the fifth highest total in history. In addition, Robinson made 554 of his foul shots, good for third place in that performance listing.
One record that Robinson can claim outright comes from his freshman year. He scored 685 points during his ninth-grade season, averaging 22.1 points per game, and that point total is the most ever recorded in the NCHSAA book by a freshman. The previous record was by another Eastern Alamance player, JamesOn Curry, who had scored 639 points in his freshman season during the 2000-01 campaign.
