Dorenzo Hudson swears there is no secret to his scoring success but there are a couple of teams that think there is.
After the 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard from Forrest Hills High School in Union County, N.C. scored 49 points in a game at the Boo Williams Invitational, people began to elaborate plans to stop his scoring.
Good luck with that.

"There isn't a trick to it. Sometimes I feel like I can do that so I try to make it happen," Hudson said.
Hudson, a big bodied guard, muscled his way through opponents with the Charlotte Royals in April. He said he is looking forward to powering through some more teams at the end of the month when he hits the hardwood at the Nike Memorial Day Classic in Nashville, Tenn.
"(April) gave me a lot of momentum. Now I think people are looking to me to put on a show. I wouldn't mind doing it again if it means my team needs me to in order to win," Hudson said. "I'm going to try though at the next Nike tournament."
Unfortunately for Hudson, his big games did not go in front of college coaches. The Boo Williams event was during the dead recruiting period. Hudson's only other spring showing was at the North Carolina state AAU tournament, another event closed off to coaches.
That hasn't kept the coaches away though. Hudson said NC State, Miami, Wake Forest, Georgia, Virginia Tech, East Carolina and Clemson are still actively pursuing him. With the exception of Wake Forest, all have offered a scholarship, Hudson said.
"They are all on me pretty good," the No. 62 ranked player in the class of 2007 said.
Even with a number of talented teams hot on his trail, Hudson said he doesn't have a list of favorites.
"I haven't even thought through it yet, I really haven't," he said. "I want to visit some of the other schools. I've been to a lot of them but I want to see NC State and Miami."
His decision is about relationships, too.
"That's so important," Hudson said. "I want to find someone that can help me out in life, someone that is like my high school coach. I want some familiarity."
