Late last night, news started spreading of a 113-point game posted by Mohammed El-Akkari of Tripoli's Moutahed team in a Lebanese FIBA league. El-Akarri's brother is Mustapha, recently elected student body president at BYU-Hawaii.
First posted by Dan Devine of Yahoo!'s Ball Don't Lie (with some corrected inaccuracies), it seemed too good to be true. Then when you dig into the numbers, it becomes even more surreal.
El-Akkari attempted just ONE free throw in the contest, a far cry from what fueled Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. That means the dude was FEELING IT like no other player in hoops history. El-Akkari went 8-10 on two-point field goals and was 32-59 (!!!!!!) from behind the arc.
Here's how I think it went down:
*THIRTY TWO TIMES*
Coach Ahmad Fadel after the game: "He's a phenomenal but very underrated shooter. He puts in a lot of hard work in practice. I am not surprised."
