 (* -The February 28, 2007, Detroit Free Press reported that the Renaissance record was 62 by Paulding.  On January 31, 2008, Mark White, the Renaissance head coach during Paulding’s high school career, told Hoover in a phone conversation that 44 was his highest game.)
 
 (**-An end-of-the season story about the 1978-79 campaign reported that DeWayne Rogers of Cass Tech scored 56 vs. Detroit Benedictine.  A full re-read of game data from this season shows no record of this point total.)

(***-A Detroit News story reported that DeMarco Page of Osborn scored 52 points vs. Finney on January 12, 2010.  Cameron Nichols of PSLbasketball.com states that total was really either 37 or 39 points. We are still fact checking.)
