On February 11, 2020 Jack Yates High School Boys Basketball team broke the national record for scoring 100 or more points in 16 consecutive games. Since then they have continued to set their own National record game by game. On Thursday, February 27, 2020 the record was bumped up to 20 as they defeated Hardin-Jefferson 102-54. The previous record was held by another Yates basketball team that went on quite the streak a decade ago.

Greg Wise, the Yates basketball coach, said post-game, “their mindset has been great. If somebody beats us, it’s going to be because they beat us.”
