Anders Broman is Minnesota’s prep scoring leader and he didn’t disappoint in the Minnesota 7A Sectional Finals. The 2-star recruit scored 43 points as his Lakeview Christian Academy Lions beat Cherry High School 83-58 at Romano Gymnasium on Friday night. Broman and Lakeview Christian lost in the opening round of the state tournament last season.
Broman told Job Nowacki of the Duluth News Tribune, “The goal from Day 1 has been to make the state tournament. We’re excited to be going back to state, but we’re not satisfied with just that. We want to bring back a title.”
Back on March 9th, Broman reached another major milestone in his highly productive career. The shooting guard scored 49 points in the 101-83 victory over Fond du Lac Ojibwe Ogichida. Broman scored his 5,000th career point in the victory. Greg Procell of Ebarb High School in Louisiana is the all-time prep leader with 6,702 points from 1967-70.
Lakeview Christian coach Bob Newstrom talked to MaxPreps about Broman’s career, “Anders is a remarkable young man and wonderful teammate. All I can say is that we’re grateful he’s on our team – and that we don’t have to defend him.”
Broman signed with the South Dakota State Jackrabbits back on September 17 of last year. Broman will be considered the replacement for SDSU senior guard Nate Wolters. Wolters is averaging 22.7 points per game in his senior campaign. SDSU are in the NCAA tournament this season after Wolters scored 27 points in the Jackrabbits 73-67 victory over North Dakota State in the tournament final in the Summit League.
Lakeview Christian will open up state tournament play on Tuesday. The opponent will be determined after seeding.
