Mitch Carlson - 31 points, 25 rebounds against Edinburg in 1982 when Edinburg was good.

Actually, it was 58. I think it was the Regional Championship.

Also, pretty sure Steve Behm's career high was 85.

One of the best performances I saw was in th 78-79 girls season.Kathy Schaff of the Zap Wildcats put up 52 against the Killdeer Cowboys.This was a state b record at the time .What else is that makes this special is there was no three point line . Also to the dismay of the fans the coach pulled Kathy out of the game half way through the third quarter.I am sure many more efforts at small schools that no longer exist have been forgotten.

North Dakota Datebook
---"Steve Blehm, Basketball Star"
Prairie Public Television, North Dakota Public Television-January 27, 2005


On this day – or actually this night – in 1971, a young man named Steve Blehm scored 85 points during the Ramsey County basketball tournament in Starkweather. That’s right, 85 points. Blehm was playing for the Devils Lake School for the Deaf, which beat Hampden 122 to 22 that night.
Steve Blehm was a phenomenal player, scoring 3,859 points during his high school career – that’s a state record that may never be broken. But it’s not his only record. His 4-year average of 41.5 points per game was a national highschool record, as was his 35.8 average during his freshman year. The following season, he racked up 1,134 points, averaging more than 47 points per game – the highest-ever average for any highschool sophomore. In fact, his “worst” performance that year was a measly 32-point game.
Blehm was unstoppable in all facets of the game, whether it was field goals, rebounds or free throws. In his four years with the School for the Deaf, he made 827 points from free throws alone. In fact, he once made 17 free throws in one game. And it wasn’t that he was tall, either. He was only 5'11", but still, he grabbed a total of 1,352 rebounds during his high school career.
If there’s one thing North Dakota history teaches us, it’s that the majority of our great heroes overcame great adversities on their way to the top. Blehm probably would have risen to the top of his game no matter what, but he did overcome some challenges along the way. He lost his hearing during childhood, when a now-banned medicine was prescribed for an ear infection. But – pardon the pun – Blehm rebounded. “I have never thought about my deafness being an obstacle to my goals,” he has said. “My hearing impairment is invisible, so people didn’t notice it except when trying to communicate with me.”
Blehm’s high school coach, Henry Brenner, said, “It was fantastic to have someone so fantastic. He moved here (from Bismarck) in the seventh grade, and you could see he was going to develop into something special.” Brenner’s son, Terry, said, “I think most people recognized “Blehm’s athletic ability instead of his disability, if you consider deafness a disability.”
Radio broadcaster, Lee Halvorson, has said, “He was one of the most mature young men I ever ran into.” Halvorson used to do the play-by-play for KDLR in Devils Lake. “(Blehm) is the best offensive basketball player I have ever seen in my life,” he said. “If they would have had 3-point range then, he would have one-third more points than he does now.” Halvorson recalled the Lakota Highschool coach once telling him his game plan for going up against the School for the Deaf. “He said if they could hold Blehm to between 30 and 40 points,” Halvorson said, “they could win the game. Blehm went out and scored 56 points. Pretty soon you took it for granted that he would have 35 or 40 points...by halftime.”
After highschool, Blehm went to Minot State for a semester and then transferred to Gallaudet University in Washington D.C. There, he was MVP in ‘76 and ‘77, and in 1978, he was named Gallaudet’s Athlete of the Year. During that time, he also won a gold medal at the World Games for the Deaf in Romania.
Blehm was talented, good-looking, and an honor student, but he wasn’t perfect. In fact, Coach Brenner had to call in his 4th grade son, Terry, to start helping Blehm pack his equipment. “He was my idol, no question,” Terry said. “(But, he) would forget this shoes or his jersey or his athletic supporter. Most people would loan him things – except the athletic supporter.”
Blehm and his wife, Linda, live in Virginia, where he works for the post office. He has said he’d consider a postal job transfer a “golden opportunity” to move back to North Dakota, because he misses it.

(this is just from human memory, please reply if you have the detailed data--My recollection is that this game was in Hettinger? Also gone is the academic year of this performance--was it 1969-1970 when Eaglestaff was a Junior? or was it 1970-1971 when he was a Senior?)

If it was a home game for Hettinger, could there be a witness/participant with "Insider Knowledge"?

When Billy Michelsen of Century had 10 threes in a game against Minot in 2006. Michelsen ended up having 37 points on senior night and Century beat at that time the number one team in the state Minot.

News from a recent source reveals some of the pieces to this puzzle. Jim Quickstad, of the Hettinger Black Devils Class of 1971, tells me that he was sidelined for that game with knee issues. Considering that Quickstad was the regular starting post for Hettinger could indicate that Robert Eaglestaff had that game against reserve players. I believe that the head coach for Hettinger was Butterfield. The head coach for Fort Yates was Swisher.

It used to be a routine to read the NDSD box scores in the paper to see how many Blehm scored the night before.

If you ask me an 85 point game is almost impossible to match. Not only in our state but in the entire country. I know there have been a few hundred pointers and what not, but when I was growing up near Dickinson this guys name was legend. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the greatest single game performance, you have to trust the numbers and the history.

What about past 5 years.

Michael Young Bird with 44 points. Nothing compared to the old schoolers!

And a boy from Mandaree had over 100 points at State B when they went somewhere around 2000.
