Bella Vista Prep (Ariz.) senior Terry Armstrong scored 30 points and became an instant fan favorite with frequent dunks in a 95-64 hammering of ISA at Andrews Osborne during the 17th annual Premier Health Flyin’ to the Hoop at Trent Arena on Sunday.
A 6-7 senior wing, Armstrong pummeled ISA with an assortment of what seemed like double-digit jams. That’s what University of Arizona coach Sean Miller is counting on from Armstrong, who signed with the Wildcats.

ISA (International Sports Academy) is a 300-acre campus in Willoughby near Cleveland that specializes in sports training. Canadian Keon Ambrose, a 6-8 junior, had 25 points. He and 6-11 sophomore Charles Bediako, another Canadian, have made unofficial visits to Ohio State.
Besides Armstrong, Bella Vista’s lineup is loaded with 6-7 junior Addison Patterson (18 points), 6-11 senior Jimmy Bell and 7-1 senior Rick Issanza, all who own multiple D-I offers. A key reserve for the Scottsdale program is junior guard Jeron Artest, the son of former NBA standout Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest.

Bella Vista also has the recent addition of guard Zion Harmon. According to the Louisville Courier Journal, the 5-9 sophomore was ruled ineligible by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association after a second transfer to Marshall County. He’ll remain a student there and play with Bella Vista on weekends. Harmon, considered the nation’s top guard prospect for the Class of 2021, hit four 3-pointers and scored 17 points.
On Saturday, Bella Vista lost 72-67 to Huntington Prep (W.Va.) at Flyin’.
