ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A decade after his scoring spree in a high school game brought him national attention, J-Mac was back - at least for one game.

Jason McElwain, who is mildly autistic, scored 10 points for the Rochester RazorSharks in Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Western New York Thundersnow.

The 27-year-old known as J-Mac signed a one-day contract with his hometown RazorSharks of the Premier Basketball League. He made 4 of 8 shots from the field, including 2 of 3 from 3-point range, while playing the last four minutes of Rochester’s 128-78 victory.

In February 2006, J-Mac scored 20 points - including six 3-pointers - during a four-minute span in his only game played while a senior at Greece Athena High School outside Rochester.

A video of his scoring spree and the postgame celebration went viral.
