Hip-hop recording artist and businessman, Percy Miller, who is better known as Master P once had dreams of playing in the NBA and may be able to see his son pursue that dream after a recent scoring outburst.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Master P’s son, Mercy Miller just set a scoring record at the high school he currently plays for when he poured in 68 points in a recent game. The 6-foot-4 guard plays for California’s Sherman Oaks Notre Dame (the same school that LeBron James’ youngest son, Bryce just transferred from) and accomplished the feat on Monday, Dec. 11.
Mercy’s older brother, Romeo Miller posted some clips after his younger brother had that awesome game on Monday night on his Instagram account.

The senior already had 25 points by halftime of Sherman Oaks’ contest against North Hollywood Oakwood. But, his output increased for the second half when he exploded for 43 more points to finish with a record-breaking 68 points. The school record, which was set in 1969 by Bud Fabian was 66 points.
Notre Dame won the game by a score of 104-44. Miller’s teammate, junior point guard Angelino Mark created another school record when he dished out a record 20 assists. With this special victory, the team remains undefeated for the season at 7-0.
The coach of the Notre Dame Knights Matt Sargeant saw that the way Miller was playing, he was on the verge of doing something special.
“Everything was happening kind of in the flow of the game and then we had a really explosive third quarter,” Sargeant said to the media outlet during a phone interview on Tuesday. “He had 30 in the third quarter, so at that point it was like, ‘Oh, wait a second, he has a chance to do this. We should help support him.’”
The son of Master P is having an explosive year after signing a letter of intent with the University of Houston in November. This young season, Miller is averaging 33 points, 12 rebounds and six assists a game, which is significantly above last year’s average of 17.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game.
