CHEYENNE, Wyoming - The Johnny Appleseed Fighting Applepickers defeated their crosstown district rivals The Mary Todd Lincoln High School Vultures by a score of 203-47.
The halftime score in Cheyenne's Buffalo Stampede Arena was Appleseed 181 - Lincoln 2.
Appleseed Coach Pettus "Shoot Da Ball" Cinnabon was criticized for running up the score, but he explained that he did put in one male cheerleader and the team's waterboy in the third and fourth quarters.
Appleseed point guard Neon Castlecrown, a 16-year-old sophomore, who is considered to be the best high school player in the nation scored 193 points including seven three-pointers from half court.
The young roundball sensation stands 7-foot-10-inches tall and is believed to be the tallest high school basketball player in the entire United States.
Neon said that he picked up his first basketball at the tender age of four months. He remarked that at the age of 15 months he was dribbling as good as his dad, a former semi-pro basketball player named Marcus "Sure Thang" Castlecrown.
Young Castlecrown, wears number 7, in honor of his all-time favorite baseball player former New York Yankee Mickey Mantle.
The Appleseed guard stated that by the time he was five-years-old he was already dunking the ball and beating some of the 15 and 16-year-old neighborhood boys at H-O-R-S-E.
Neon gets straight A's and he can already speak six languages fluently including Mohican.
Coach Cinnabon pointed out that all the other teams triple and quadruple team him during the entire game but Neon still easily gets by everyone.
Several NBA scouts have already traveled up to Cheyenne to watch Neon in action and some have said that he could play for any NBA team right now.
SIDENOTE: When Neon was asked which NBA team he would like to play for he smiled and said The San Antonio Spurs.
