Tuesday was a different game day for Highland Park coach Mike Williams.
Williams spent his day at the local hospital with chest pains and was stuck in the hospital until 6:00 p.m.
Still, he was able to rush over to the gym and help lead his team to a dominant 76-43 victory over Meadowlark Conference opponent Kansas City-Washington.
"I was having chest pains, and I had no idea if I was having a heart attack or what," Williams said. "It's just been a crazy day. I wasn't around in school, I wasn't around at the end of the day, and I missed the JV game. But the guys were able to stay intact and keep their heads right."
Luckily, his heart was okay, and so was his team.
Class 5A No. 1-ranked Highland Park kept its 12-0, undefeated record alive in a loud way.
The Scots have now won eight games by at least 30 points. Highland Park's bench players are getting more minutes than the average team's starting five.
The Scots' starting five of Tre Richardson, Bo Aldridge, Jahmir Kingcannon, Quentin Adams and Aydren Drew-Gregory put the team in the best position possible to secure another enormous victory.
Four Highland Park players had double-digit scoring nights. Tamir Anderson led the Scots with 16 points off the bench while Aldridge had 15 points, Adams 12 and Richardson 10 points.
