- Anyone who follows California city High School boys basketball knows that the Ravens under coach Ronald Fleming love to play pressure defense and shoot three-pointers, which often leads to a lot of points as their nearly 90-point-per-game scoring average and six games of at least 109 points attests.

But even the most ardent Cal City fan would be hard-pressed to imagine what would happen Friday in a High Desert League game at Frazier Mountain.

Behind a pressure defense that forced the Falcons (3-16, 0-7 in league play) into 50 turnovers and some red-hot shooting, Cal City (19-5, 7-0) rolled to a record-setting 165-38 victory while piling up a number of other state marks as well.

With each member starting lineup scoring at least 24 points, according to statistics provided to the Bakersfield Californian by Frazier Mountain coach Nicole Powell, the Ravens bettered the nearly 25-year-old state one-game mark of 156 points, set in 1993 by San Francisco Balboa against San Francisco OCONNELL, according to Mark Tennis of Cal-Hi Sports.

The 165 points are the 13th-most nationally according to the National Federation of High School Associations. The record is 211 points by the then-De Quincy Grand Avenue (La.) High School (now simply DeQuincy High) in 1964.

The 127-point margin of victory also set a state record, bettering the mark of 125 points set by Stoneridge Prep of Tarzana in 2002.

The Ravens' 60-point second quarter also set a state mark, bettering the 55 points put up by King-Drew of Los Angeles in 2006, while their 90 first-half points tied the record for a half set by St. John's of Whitewater in Riverside County in 1996, according to Cal-Hi Sports' Tennis.

In addition to the 50 steals, the Ravens pulled down 67 rebounds, according to MaxPreps' box score. Cal City sank 14 of 42 three-point shots (33.3%), one of the Ravens' specialities, and 54 for 92 two-point shots (58.7%). Seniors Raymong Powell and Hubert Johnson led the scoring with 28 points each, while fellow senior Jordan Mays added 25 points, and junior Cameron Jarmen and sophomore Madetoneyo Mays contributed 24 points each.

The defending CIF-Central Section Division V champions next play host to Rosamond on Tuesday before traveling to Bishop for a first-place HDL showdown with second-place Bishop Union on Feb. 9. The Ravens held off the Broncos, 84-76, on Jan. 23 in Cal City.

Cal City completes its regular season with a Feb. 13 home game against Kern Valley before awaiting Central Section playoff pairings.
