Bede Drops 47

North Andover High School junior guard Wabissa Bede went for a career high 47 points on Thursday night, leading the Knights to a 76-60 win over Haverhill.

Along with the 47 points, Bede connected on 9 three-pointers, grabbed 14 rebounds, and handed out 5 assists.

Bede is now averaging 29 points per game through 14 contests thus far this season, more than doubling his scoring from 12 points per game as a sophomore. He's also getting 11 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks, 2 steals and over three made three-pointers per game this season.

"He's been doing it all year," North Andover coach Paul Tanglis told the Eagle Tribune. "He was just on fire. The amount he improved from last year to this is unbelievable."

"It's a testament to what he's done in the offseason," Tanglis said.

Bede's 47 points were the highest single game mark for a North Andover player in over 50 years.

Additionally, his 29 points per game would be the highest since Scott Hazelton's season average in 1999. Hazelton was a McDonald's All-American that year.
