OK, so, this post isn't about any of the eight games on the Tuesday night NBA schedule. But when someone has reportedly scored 113 points in a single game, someone has reportedly scored 113 points in a single game, and so we write about it.

That's what Mohammad El-Akkari — also known as Mustpha El-Akkari, who played college ball stateside for BYU-Hawaii, which is somehow a thing, except that he did not accumulate any stats? — reportedly just did in a FIBA Asia game.*

As the story goes — and, to be honest, we're having a tough time processing it ourselves, especially without video of some made shots — the 27-year-old Akkari, who had averaged just 7.6 points per game in the 23 games he'd previously played for Tripoli basketball club Mouttahed this season, scored 113 points on 40-of-69 shooting in a 173-141 win against Bejjeh in a Lebanese Division A League game. That total, which reportedly includes a ludicrous 32-of-59 mark from 3-point land, would FAR outstrip every single-game mark in the history of FIBA competition.

Reached for comment on the prospect of bringing Akkari stateside, the Charlotte Bobcats said they had no interest in signing him, citing "tanking" as their primary reason. Oh, crap, was that supposed to be off the record?

From FIBAAsia.net:

Akkari reeled in an incredible 32 three-pointers out of 59 attempts in an overall 40/69 field shooting and a solitary free-throw.

"Thank God for this performance. I think it's all a result of my practice," Akkari said from [the] team bus on his way back to Tripoli.

"I also want to thank my coach for letting me play that long and all my teammates for helping," he added. [...]

Akkari's American teammate Austin Johnson too was all praise for him.

"He was awesome tonight. He starting out shooting the ball very well and just continued to go. 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," Johnson said.

According to available records, Akkari's performance marks the first time that a player has scored more than 100 points in an official game played in any FIBA Asia National Federations league. Two other 100-point performances have reportedly been recorded in Asia — Lou Salvador's 116 points for the Philippines against China in the 1923 Far Eastern Games, and schoolboy Jeron Teng's 104 points in a Philippines high school game in 2001 2011.**

But in the pro ranks? In a league co-signed by the organization that defines the international rules of basketball as they're deployed today? There, apparently, Akkari stands alone. By dint of having scored 113 points in a single game.

OK: All of this sounds insane.

That point total — let's take a look again: 113 points — would be ludicrous for even the biggest, baddest, most imposing forces in the history of the professional game in any league or nation, even adjusting for the quality of competition he'd face. For a player who stands 6-foot-4 to post that kind of number seems like an alternate reality in which the Scarlet Witch eliminated mutation or something.

And yet, this is the world in which we find ourselves in April 2012. Hallelujah. Holy [EXPLETIVE].

It's April 3rd, right?
