Mohammad El-Akkari recently scored a whopping 113 points in a single FIBA Asia game, including 32 3-point shots (via Yahoo! Sports).El-Akkari’s Tripoli club won the game 173-141, and El Akkari, who attended high school in Texas and played college ball at BYU-Hawaii, made 40 of his 69 shots. He was averaging just 7.6 points per game prior to the bizarre outburst.

The 113 points is by far the most ever scored during an official FIBA Asia contest. The previous record was 42, back in 2007.

And in all of this, maybe the craziest stat is that El-Akkari only made a single free throw. On the night Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points, the notoriously poor free throw shooter, made 28 of 32 free throws.
