WATERVILLE, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – Tyson Maxam, the son of Waterville head coach Coby Maxam and Second Team Class C All-State Team member, entered Thursday night’s contest against 3-8 overall Sherburne-Earlville 15 points shy of the school’s all-time points record, and 3 short of the all-time three-point record.
The standing record of 1,616 total points was set by Shannon Ruane in 1996 and had stood since then, but with Maxam entering averaging over 28 points per game, there was little doubt that the Waterville senior would eclipse the mark before his team went on a two-game road trip.
Maxam hit his mark with approximately 5:30 remaining in the first half, but that wasn’t it for his performance on the night, adding another 20 points for a total of 35, his second highest of the season. He bumped his average up to a flat 29 PPG, meaning that he is on pace for close to 1,900 points by the end of the regular season. With the Indians winning tonight’s contest 81-31 improving their record to 10-1 and moving into the first-seeded position in Class C following Dolgeville’s loss to Little Falls, there is a real chance that Maxam comes close to 2,000 career points.
