    That's a solid jump in average points right there.

    Move over Wilt Chamberlain. 113 points scored!!!

    Link

    Move over Wilt Chamberlain. Another basketball player joined the elite century club after scoring 113 points in a Lebanese league game.

    Mohammad El Akkari led Moutahed to a 173-141 victory over Bejjeh in a Division A league game on Tuesday. He scored 32 3-pointers in 59 attempts and was 40-for-69 overall from the floor. He only had one free throw.

    The basketball world governing body website said the 6-foot-2 guard is the first player to score more than 100 points in an official league game in any of its Asian national federations.

    Two players achieved the feat in non-league games. Lou Salvador had 116 points for the Philippines against China in the 1923 Far Eastern Games, and Jeron Teng scored 104 for Xavier School against Grace Christian College in a high school game in the Philippines.

    Chamberlain scored 100 points in an NBA game, a record that still stands 50 years later.

    The 7-foot-1 Chamberlain played all 48 minutes in the Philadelphia Warrior's 169-147 win over the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962. He shot 36 of 63 from the floor and 28 of 32 from the free-throw line.

    The next closest NBA player is Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant, who scored 81 on Jan. 22, 2006.

    The 27-year-old Akkari entered the game averaging only 7.6 points and 19.2 minutes of playing time in 23 games this season.

    "I think it's all a result of my practice," Akkari said. "I also want to thank my coach for letting me play that long and all my teammates for helping."

    Coach Ahmad Fadel said he always thought Akkari had the potential for such a performance.

    "He's a phenomenal but a very underrated shooter. He puts in a lot of hard work in practice," Fadel said. "I am not surprised."

    American teammate Austin Johnson said it was clear Akkari was headed for a big night.

    "He starting out shooting the ball very well and just continued to go," Johnson said. "Our team realized that he was on fire, so we kept feeding him the ball. Congrats to Akkari on a record-setting night. He deserves it from the way he works and stays focused."
    Well it is just Lebanon, but 113 is unbelievable.

    The only 1 free throw is what surprised me the most. I heard about this on the radio (I live in Lebanon) then I saw highlights, Defense was non-existent. BUT 1 free throw...

    Impressive that he shot it that well... Hell he shot the ball better than Wilt.

    The expectations are visible behind Dwight Howard in LA

    Lebanese fans are hating the coverage this story has gotten and here is why!

    The tally was clearly a remarkable one although it came with a number of caveats. Bejjeh fielded just five players, individuals who didn’t want to play because of unpaid wages but pulled on a jersey just to prevent Bejjeh from forfeiting the game and therefore their status as a top flight team. Not only that but the nation’s sporting eyes were in Manara watching Riyadi play Game 2 of the WABA League final against Mahram.

    The game turned into a shootaround and Akkari racked up a score that nearly doubled the previous Lebanese league record – 61 points by Mechantaf.

    Akkari, however, isn’t bothered by the circumstances and enjoys his newfound place on the webpages of ESPN and the LA Times, to name just two media outlets that have picked up his story.

    “It was the best day of my whole career and I’m so happy with what I did. Everybody was shocked with what I did and everybody has congratulated me for these numbers,” Akkari told The Daily Star’s Sports Weekly.

    With Akkari’s 113-point game having three or four days to ferment over the Internet, two memes have cropped up between two very different set of fans.

    Most of the coverage has been centered in America where little is known of Lebanese basketball. Therefore pundits aren’t to know that Akkari has spent most of his career as a three-point specialist off the bench; that he averaged just 7.6 points per game before Tuesday; that the opposition team weren’t trying; and that Akkari has never even played for the Lebanese national team.

    The scoreline led several pundits to believe that Akkari could potentially take on a role with an NBA team. Even respected platforms like the Bleacher Report floated such speculation. Akkari himself, however, is aware of what an overblown statement that is.

    “It’s too far, they say it maybe because they are happy with my score but I’m with Tripoli and [the suggestion] is too far,” the player said. “No [I’m not getting carried away], everybody has a dream to play in the NBA but you have to be fair.”

    Contrary to reports in the U.S., Akkari didn’t play high-school basketball in America. Photos allegedly depicting him in the uniform of BYU in Hawaii that made it onto syndicated networks were in fact of his brother.

    Opinion in the U.S. has, however, also questioned whether Akkari’s accomplishment is an achievement at all considering he executed the feat in a relatively small league.

    In Lebanon, fan reaction hasn’t been so positive and has been very sensitive to the derogatory tones in the blogosphere.

    Countless people have aired their frustration that Akkari’s 113-point game has made Lebanese basketball a laughing stock. Many believe that while the game put Lebanese basketball in the spotlight, it has fostered negative opinion about a league that so many have worked hard to legitimize.

    The general feeling is that the only thing Akkari managed to do was prove that the Lebanese league was “Garbage,” to quote Opinionation in a YouTube rant.

    While most of the abuse is directed at Bejjeh for feeding Akkari points and at the federation for allowing them to it, Akkari is something of an innocent party in the middle. He does, however, have no regrets and treats all opinions with the same indifference.

    “I have to respect both [kinds of reactions], it’s not about me putting Lebanese basketball on the map, it’s on the map already, maybe it could be a turning point because the amount of points I scored.

    “If I hadn’t scored 113 points, no one would have talked about the game. I know the game [it was a bit of a joke] but at the end you see the amount of shots I took and the amount of points I scored. I was looking at the percentage I made, which I do whether the game is a hard one or an easy one.”

    Back to reality this weekend when Mouttahed Tripoli face a much sterner test against third-place Anibal Zahle, Akkari is aware that all eyes will be on him and that expectations will have moved to unreachable highs.

    “I am searching to play more minutes, there is more responsibility on me now, I have to keep my standard up.

    “I let everybody know than I can play good [basketball] and now I have the responsibility on the court, every time I shoot everyone will be looking at it. That’s a responsibility I want.”

    Opinion may be divided on Akkari’s achievement but it is a testament to the viral nature of the Internet that a tire worker in Tripoli can be an international sensation overnight. Before Tuesday, not even many Lebanese basketball fans knew who he was, now he is in newspapers across the world.

    “I work with my father ... on Bridgestone tires, Akkari Trading. I will go as far as I can, either in basketball [or] in business.”

    so why usa team had had some trouble against european team in the past ? (i do not mean last time...)
    the arc is farther in nba...but that's not say that nba-ers are hitting so much 3s in internationnal competition.
    agree on the thing that anyway, he can shoot !
