Toronto Raptors forward Terrence Ross stunned the NBA world by scoring 51 points on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. That's a staggering 40 points above the former Montrose Christian product's season average.

That's not even the most points scored by a player from the Rockville school in the NBA this season. Some guy named Kevin Durant with the Oklahoma City Thunder went for 54 on January 17 against the Golden State Warriors.

That's not even the most points scored by a player from the state of Maryland within the last 10 days. Baltimore's own Carmelo Anthony scored 62 points for the New York Knicks against the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday, the highest total for a player in the league this season.

Also this past week came a report that Maryland produces the most D1 players per capita. Now, Ross is actually from Portland, but he played spent his junior season of high school at Montrose. So while he doesn't really count in the per capita report, he does for our purposes. Durant and Anthony, the NBA's top two scorers, certainly count.

Recently all three made gameday statisticians count and count. Your move, Indiana.
