Flynn's remarkable outing was characterized by incredible efficiency, as he shot an impressive 18-for-25 from the field and 9-for-12 from the free-throw line. Beyond his scoring prowess, Flynn also showcased his versatility by contributing across multiple facets of the game, tallying a season-high six rebounds, five assists, and five steals during his 34 minutes on the court.

Reflecting on his historic achievement, Flynn expressed a blend of satisfaction and determination, emphasizing the importance of team success alongside personal milestones. Despite the loss, Flynn's performance serves as a testament to his resilience and unwavering commitment to excellence.
