It really deserves an own topic, because of what happened yesterday (saturday) in Warsaw, where Polonia defeated Basket Kwidzyn 85-82. Not only hosts overcomed 20-points deficit from 3rd quarter, not only 4th quarter was a fascinating emotional piece of basketball to watch, but Michael Ansley scored 37 points.
Why is it so remarkable? Because today he was celebrating (and damm, he had a good reason for it) his 42nd birthday!!! I've never checked statistics for the best single game in european leagues for player over35 years old (not mentioning over 40), but it has to be some kind of record.
I know it's only a polish league, but when you are 42 years old and you are scoring 37 points against Andriej Urlep's team, than you are really a special player.
Btw, after the game he was asked why he didn't score a 42 pts - "I should do it, and it didn't happen only because coach Urlep's teams are very good defensively"
Happy birthday Mr Ansley!!!
PS. Is there anybody here who remembers him from his NBA years, or maybe time he was playing for Unicaja?
