The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And we were worrying about Kobe

Some day we may be worrying about this:

Epiphanny Prince of Murry Bergtraum High School [NYC] scored 113 points in a game Wednesday, breaking a girls' national prep record previously held by Hall of Famer Cheryl Miller.

Prince, a 5-foot-9 senior guard, led her team to a 137-32 victory over Brandeis High School.

Someone thought to ask the Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James what he thought of this, and he said:

It's an amazing thing when an individual does that. I don't know who she is, but maybe we'll see her in the WNBA. For that matter, the NBA.

And you know, at five-foot-nine, she's not much shorter than Speedy Claxton.

Gotta love that name ... Epiphanny Prince. What was her mama thinking?

I need to make sure Pat Summitt knows about this one. A little retooling of the Lady Vols has to happen now and then, and what better place to start than with a scoring machine named Epiphanny...

I have waited a long time to see a girl named Epiphany. It was inevitable, given the way girls' names have been going. Destiny, meet Epiphany.

Weirdly, a kid brought a sign to the Hornets/Lakers game last night to the effect of "Hey Kobe, A Girl Beat You 113-81!"
