11:52 am on 5 April 2012

A Lebanese basketballer player has scored 113 points in a league game - the first player to produce a hundred point game in any of FIBA's Asian Federation Leagues.

Mohammad El Akkari, who played College basketball in the United States, went into the game averaging just 7.6 points per game.

He made 40-of-69 shots, including 32 of 59 three-point attempts and had just one one free throw.

Akkari joins NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain in the 100 club.

Chamberlain scored 100 points for the Lakers against the Knicks in 1962.
