7’1″ Thon Maker is currently averaging 32 PPG
Athlete Institute is 3-0 right now and Thon Maker is on track to finish off a really strong senior campaign.
Last week, the 7’1″ combo forward snagged the MVP trophy at the Cornfield Classic in Iowa from a 32 point performance against Victory Prep.
Just days before that A.I Prep would have their first game of the season where Maker posted 37 points and 11 rebounds.
Currently Maker is averaging 32 points a game, and it seems he is just getting started.

On Wednesday in Orangeville, Ontario; Athlete Institute went against BTB Prep.
A.I opened the game with huge momentum thanks to Maker landing a large number of big blocks early in the game setting the tone for A.I.
In the final play of the first half Maker got a defensive rebound, worked the ball up to his brother Matur Maker who missed the bucket and flew in and dunked the rebound to end the half (while nearly landing on us!).
With a couple minutes remaining in a close game, with A.I up two points, Maker was fouled and had two free throws. He missed them both, but helped cause a turnover and scored an angry jam.
A.I Prep won by two points in the end. Maker scored 27 points but his rebounds we’re not listed.
Athlete Institute’s next game is Wednesday versus Henry Carr High School.
