EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) Day School junior Tyler Myers has turned into one of the best high school basketball players in Evansville.

On Tuesday night, he took his game to a whole new level.

Myers set the Day School single-game scoring record when he poured in 50 points in a win against Carmi-White Co.

“About 10 minutes after the game someone came up to me and told me and I didn’t believe them at all. I had no idea throughout the game. I was just playing the game I love,” says Myers. “That’s awesome. It really is, that my name gets to be etched in the record books.”

Myers is averaging 37 points a game this season and is currently in 6th place on the Evansville all-time scoring list.
