Ft Yates was Class A when Eaglestaff played. Great player. He went to BYU and then to UND. I don't think he played in the NBA.
Robert Eaglestaff scored 69 points for Fort Yates against Hettinger on Dec. 12, 1970, for the Class A single-game record. Fort Yates was a Class A school at the time. In that game, Eaglestaff made 29 of 46 shots from the field and sank 11 of 15 free throws, according to newspaper reports. The 6-foot-7 Eaglestaff also grabbed 22 rebounds in that game. - Fargo Forum
Wow.... There are a lot of games that a TEAM doesn't even get up 46 shots.
