Vince Damelio assured himself a a spot in boys basketball's state records. Well, many spots.

Damelio, a senior at Primero, had a monster game in which he scored 61 points, made 24-of-27 field goals, and went 10-of-11 from 3-point.

"It was a very special thing to watch because he practically didn't miss a shot," said Primero coach Kyle Navarette.

Though Primero lost the game to South Baca on Saturday, Damelio became just the seventh player in state history to score at least 60 points in a game, and his total output ranks sixth all-time.

Other records:

  • 24 field goals made, tied for the fifth-most.
  • 10 3-pointers made, tied for the 14th-most.

Damelio is averaging 25.5 points and 7.9 rebounds per game for Class 1A Primero (14-4), which will play in its district tournament this week. The 25.5 points per game rank sixth in the state in all classes, and are second in 1A.

Saturday's game was the fourth time he'd scored more than 30 points in a game this season.
