Lakeview Christian Academy junior, Anders Broman (not to be confused with Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago), is no stranger to racking up points. A 71-point game, while impressive, isn't much when you consider that Broman is the fastest player in Minnesota history to reach 3,000 points in a career. It appears Anders got the lion's share of the Broman talent as brother Bjorn Broman only scored a serviceable 11 points in the loss. But who really knows, maybe Bjorn is some 8th grade prodigy playing at the next level.
According to the Duluth News Tribune:
The junior guard was 8-for-13 from 3-point range, 13-for-14 from the free-throw line and shot 67 percent overall. He made six of his 3-pointers during the second-half comeback.
That marked the second-highest single-game total by an individual player in state history. Equally incredibly, Broman’s 71-point outburst was still 19 points shy of the state single-game record held by former Minneapolis (Minn.) Minnesota Transitions star Cash Eggleston, who racked up 90 points in a 2005 victory.
I love that he didn't dethrone the current single-game record holder. Dude's f*cking name is CASH! It's only appropriate that he is remains Minnesota's top dog till the end of time.
“It was a bittersweet game,” Broman told the News Tribune of the loss. “I made a couple threes to start the half, so I started feeling it. It felt like everything I shot would go in. I love when those days happen.”
With more than a year left of high school ball, Anders is already being recruited by a few D-1 universities including, Northwestern, Virginia Tech, and San Diego State University.
Here's Anders' season highlight reel.
Note: I just checked and Bjorn is a freshman, he was on the team in 8th grade but his stats suggests he polished the bench.
