After a summer league game, Villanova’s Corey Fisher scored 105 points. The performance was not only impressive, but also impressive given that he averaged 10.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and three assists per game. What’s more, he had his highest scoring average and blocked the most shots in his career. In this article, we take a look at Fisher’s new role as a leader for the Wildcats.
Corey Fisher scored 105 points in summer league game
In the summer of 2010, Corey Fisher was playing a summer league game in New York City. The point guard averaged 13.3 points in high school, but his remarkable performance on August 7 has made him something of a playground legend. Despite his remarkable performance, Fisher was still able to downplay the significance of the feat. “It was just a fun game,” Fisher said. “I think everybody in the city was excited for me.”
Despite a swarm of GymRatsNYC defense, Fisher continued to score. He had 72 points through the first three quarters. The GymRatsNYC threw every defensive scheme they could think of to contain him, from double teams to zone defense. Despite the swarming defense, Fisher managed to score 105 points in the summer league game.
The impressive performance came as a surprise to Fisher, who is only twenty-five years old. The former Villanova guard had only one other summer league game under his belt when he scored 105 points against the Los Angeles Lakers. Fisher hit 23 of his 28 three-point attempts and scored 72 points in twenty minutes of second-half play. As a senior, Fisher led Villanova in scoring, assists, and steals.
In that summer league game, Corey Fisher scored 105 points and shot 63% from the field. Fisher made 23 of his 28 three-point attempts and missed five. He also scored 77 percent of his points in the second half, and he also played against the Spanish Harlem version of an NBA player, Jose Calderon. The Bronx fans turned up the volume when Fisher was on a roll.
Despite the fact that summer-league games are not typically recorded, Fisher shattered the league record for scoring in a single game. He scored 105 points in a single game, which shattered Kenny Saterfield’s previous record of sixty points in a single summer league game. During the summer league, Fisher is a semi-professional player who competes in streetball tournaments in New York City.
Fisher averaged 10.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game
During the 2008-09 season, Corey Fisher averaged 10.5 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. He started all 38 games and averaged a career-high 9.9 points per game. He also had an impressive shooting season, averaging 53.3 percent from three-point range and hitting 48 percent of his attempts from the free throw line.
During the 2010-11 season, Fisher was named a second-team All-Big East honoree and was named to the BIG EAST Academic All-Star squad. He led the Wildcats in scoring and assists (159-4.8 apg). In January, he was named one of 20 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, which honors the nation’s top point guard. Fisher had to battle tendinitis in his right knee, but played through it and was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll.
In the 2008-09 Big East regular season, Fisher started 33 games and averaged 10.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. During that season, he also averaged three steals per game and 3.4 rebounds per game. His impressive statistics helped the Wolverines to win eight out of nine Big East games.
After spending his junior and senior years playing JV basketball, Corey Fisher was already a top prospect. The former Benet Academy standout averaged 17.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, was a two-time all-area selection, and earned four letters in basketball and football. He averaged 3.5 points per game last season while playing for two varsity teams.
Fisher had a career high in blocks
In an NCAA game played on March 02 against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Corey Fisher tied his career high with 105 points and 5 blocks. In addition, Fisher also finished with 2 points, 3 rebounds, and 5 assists. The news of his 105-point performance quickly spread online. However, Fisher hasn’t confirmed the story. But he certainly was proud of his performance.
Despite being one of the best players on the floor for Villanova, Fisher will need to step up as the team leader off the court. Although he had a tough time starting in his first NCAA game, Fisher was still able to reach his career high. This year, Fisher is expected to step into the clutch role of Scottie Reynolds. Despite being one of the team’s top scorers, he’s been benched in the first few minutes of the game.
The game was one of the best games Fisher has ever played. Fisher hit a deep three-pointer to open the game and didn’t look back during the 40-minute game. As Fisher started to heat up, the Bronx’s crowd turned up the volume. Fisher’s 105 points topped Wilt Chamberlain’s record by two points. But the record for a single game is still held by Wilt Chamberlain.
Jackson scored a season-high of 14 points twice against Brigham Young. He also hit five treys and added seven rebounds. On Nov. 8, he also posted a season-high of 17 points and added six assists. In addition to his double-double, he also had five steals. And in Nov. 14 against Providence, he hit five three-pointers to give himself a double-double.
Amber Hall led the Spartans with 25 blocks, and enters the tournament with a six-game block streak. She recorded four blocks on Senior Night against Boise State. Besides Hall, the Spartans also have two players with double-doubles. Lynette Jacobs scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Brittany Powell finished with nine rebounds.
Fisher’s new role as Villanova’s leader
After steadily improving his efficiency and production numbers throughout his college career, Corey Fisher has moved into a leadership role on the team. With Scottie Reynolds no longer in the picture, Fisher will get his chance to become Villanova’s lead guard. He’ll have a chance to play a larger role on offense and defense. This will help him improve his stock. Here are some things to look out for in Fisher’s new role as a leader:
During the season, Fisher averaged 18.4 points and made 69 of the team’s 309 field-goal attempts. His relationship with his father, Guy Fisher, did not change, but the two still talk on the phone occasionally. Fisher also hasn’t visited Guy Fisher since arriving at Villanova. Even though the two are separated by thousands of miles, and by 41 years, they share a common bond through basketball.
As a freshman, Fisher was a highly sought-after recruit by the Villanova program. Villanova landed Fisher because he was a talented player. He has a tough, fearless personality and a knack for scoring the ball. He is also a fearless competitor, who came to college not caring how his opponents played. But he’s now an integral part of a team that many expect to compete for the national championship.
Despite Fisher’s impressive resume, his team’s biggest issue is lack of leadership. The team has been plagued by a series of embarrassing incidents. Despite this, Fisher and Stokes have emerged as Villanova’s leaders. It’s a big job, but they’ll have the talent to pull it off. With that, the Wildcats’ expectations are sky-high.
As a guard, Fisher shows good court vision and a solid skill set. He plays well on the pick-and-roll and has a good handle. He makes a good dump-off pass when driving. He is a reliable playmaker off the ball, though his minutes on the court are inconsistent. If Fisher is not getting enough minutes off the bench, he’ll be the lead guard.
