Five-star center Omer Yurtseven scored 91 points and grabbed 28 rebounds during a Turkish U-18 basketball game on Sunday.

The 17-year-old from Istanbul, who plays for Fenerbahce, accomplished the feat against 9 Eylul Basketbol Ihtisas, hitting 34 of 49 shots, including five from three-point range. 

Yurtseven’s 49 shots were just under 70% of those taken by his entire team during the 115–82 victory.
