World Youth Games veteran Jeron Teng shattered all existing high-school records by exploding for 104 points in leading three-time defending champion Xavier School to a 164-74 romp over Grace Christian College on Wednesday in the Freego Tiong Lian Basketball Association tournament at Xavier gym.

The 6-foot-1 son of former San Miguel Beer bruiser Alvin Teng was virtually unstoppable from the shaded lane, finishing with an impressive 37-of-70 shooting in 35 minutes of action as the Golden Stallions gained a piece of the lead with St. Jude Catholic School at 3-0.

Teng’s feat did not only obliterate the league-record 64 points set by former Xavier hotshot Eric Yao in 1998 but also bettered the existing marks in the NCAA and UAAP.

Former Jose Rizal U star Joshua Saret owns the NCAA mark of 89 points which he set in the team’s 171-43 massacre of Angeles University Foundation two years ago, while Far Eastern U star Terrence Romero shot 83 in the team’s 104-55 rout of University of the Philippines Integrated School, also two years ago.

For the third straight game, Teng finished with a double-double with 24 boards to earn another Freego Player of the Game award.

He was also equally sharp from the free-throw area as he made 29 of 34 tries.

He was at his best in the payoff period, where he scored 36 points.

Meantime, St. Stephen’s High School, drawing solid games from Emarson Que and Kent Lao, picked up its second win in four games by downing Uno High School, 79-42.

The 164 points and the 90-point winning margin by Xavier School were also all-time Tiong Lian team records.
