Anders Broman, a 2013 graduate of Lakeview Christian Academy of Duluth, has been verified as Minnesota’s all-time leading scorer in basketball.
Broman, a 6-foot-2 guard, finished his high school career with 5,119 points, best all-time for boys’ or girls’ basketball in Minnesota.
Braham’s Rebekah Dahlman, a 2013 graduate, is Minnesota’s all-time leading scorer in girls’ basketball with 5,060 points.
The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) certified Broman after a review of documentation provided by former Lakeview Christian Academy boys basketball coach Bob Newstrom and consultation with Minnesota boys basketball historian, Matt Pederson of Starbuck.
Broman averaged 31.2 points per game in his six-year varsity career. As a junior, he scored a single-season state record 1,311 points and averaged 43.7 points per game. He averaged 41.45 points per game as a senior. Those are the top two marks in state history.
He scored 30 or more points 96 times in his 164-game high school career and scored a career-high 71 points in a loss to Melrose on Feb. 25, 2012. That single-game output ranks No. 2 all-time in MSHSL history behind Cash Eggleston of Minnesota Transitions Charter School of Minneapolis, who scored 90 points in a game in 2005.
Broman ranks No. 1 in MSHSL history in career field goals attempted (3,356), field goals made (1,897), free throws attempted (1,160), free throws made (964), and steals (591).
Broman signed to play at South Dakota State University but has since transferred to Winthrop University to play with his younger brother, Bjorn, another high-scoring guard.
