Mario Chalmers is a good basketball player. Heck, he scored 29 points in a tournament game last week. He also got toasted by a sophomore named Edwin Rios.
Rios scored 35 points, the highest output yet in this year's event, and had 11 assists as he outshined Kansas signee Mario Chalmers of Bartlett. Chalmers, who is rated as the third-best senior point guard in the nation, had 29 points in the loss.
Bartlett was playing about 5,000 miles from home, and this is a but this Rios kid has got to be pretty good. He also had 9 rebounds and 7 steals to go with his 29 points and 11 assists. Chalmers added 6 assists to his 29 points, and shot 2/4 on three pointers. He was also fouled so hard at one point that his shorts came off.
Bartlett's next game was marked by a scoring controversy wherein the official score and the scoreboard were off for much of the second half.
