Mohammad El Akkari of Moutahed joined the very rare group of players to score more than 100 points in a game on Tuesday, when he reeled in 113 points in the Tripoli side’s 173-141 win against Bejjeh in a Lebanese Division A League Final 8 game.
As per records available, this is first instance of a player scoring more than 100 points in an official game played in any of the leagues in FIBA Asia National Federations.
The only two other instances of more than 100 points in a single game in Asia are when Lou Salvador scored 116 points for the Philippines against China in the 1923 Far Eastern Games and Jeron Teng scored 104 points for Xavier School against Grace Christian College in a High School game in the Philipines.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records the highest ever individual score is the 272 points when Swede Mats Wermelin, as a 13-year-old boy, scored all the points in a game in a regional school tournament in Stockholm.
