The 41-point effort by Blackmon Jr. tied Oscar Robertson (1956) for the third highest ever in the series. Only George McGinnis (53, Indiana, 1969) and Jim McDaniels (42, Kentucky, 1967) have scored more.
The McDonald’s All-American guard was 13-of-26 from the field, 4-of-9 on 3-pointers and 11-of-13 from the free throw line in 39 minutes. He also had four rebounds, three steals, two turnovers and an assist.

Over the summer, Inside the Hall will be taking a look back at some of 2014 signee Robert Johnson’s top games from his 2013-2014 season at Benedictine College Preparatory.
(Previously: Scouting video: Robert Johnson vs. St. Benedict’s, Scouting video: Robert Johnson vs. Christchurch School)
As a senior at Benedictine, Johnson averaged 24.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 steals as the Cadets finished 25-7 against a schedule with talented teams from across the country.
In the third installment of our scouting video of Johnson, we look back at a February 4 meeting with the Millwood School, a private school in Midlothian, Virginia.
Benedictine prevailed on its home court, 76-62, as Johnson finished with 30 points (11-of-19 shooting), eight rebounds and seven assists in 26 minutes. To start the game, Johnson made five consecutive 3-pointers.
This video, available after the jump, has a little bit of everything to give you a more complete look at Johnson’s game including made shots, some missed shots, a few defensive plays, a few assists and several rebounds as well.
