Andrew Fitzgerald scored the Ehime Orange Vikings’ first two points on an outside jumper on Sunday, and never stopped scoring.
He had a career-high 55 points and pulled down 22 rebounds while playing all 40 minutes in Ehime’s bounce-back, 101-95 victory over the Fukushima Firebonds in Koriyama, Fukushima Prefecture. Fitzgerald broke the B. League second-division scoring record, eclipsing former Ehime forward Chehales Tapscott’s 50-point performance against the Aomori Wat’s on April 20, 2018. (Ryan Rossiter of the Tochigi Brex set the first-division scoring record on Dec. 8, pouring in 52 points against the Ryukyu Golden Kings.)
