Trevor Arico scored 47 points - the most any Hornet basketball player has scored in at least a decade - as Saline defeated Evergreen Park, Ill., 76-69 at Madison Heights Bishop Foley Sunday, during the Martin Luther King Showcase.
Arico hit a tournament record 10 three-pointers.
The performance attracted the attention of the Detroit Free Press, which nominated the senior for player of the week.
Time to vote for the Michigan high school boys basketball player of the week.
The Hornets improved to 5-3. They visit Monroe Friday.
Arico has been an offensive catalyst for the Hornets throughout the early going. He took the football season off to concentrate on basketball, and it's paying dividends. He's waiting for college offers. Outings like Sunday's will attract the kind of attention he's seeking.
I’ll continue to say it, D2/NAIAs need to be all over 2020 Trevor Arico.
