Height is might daw? Anjo Caram is shortest PBA player to score 30


Meralco Bolts relief guard Anjo Caram made history Sunday night when he became the shortest PBA player to ever score at least 30 points in a game.

Caram, officiallly measured at 5-6 3/4, carved his name in the PBA history books after making all but four of his 15 attempts on the floor and highlighting it with a 4-of-6 marksmanship from beyond the arc as the Bolts soared to a 103-89 rout of NorthPort and secured twice to beat advantage in the Governors’ Cup playoffs.

The former San Beda star had 16 in the fourth period, a 12-minute output that already matched his previous career-high.

“I’m happy for him because he works very hard in practice; he’s a guy who has a great attitude, comes to work everyday, doesn’t complain about anything. When we play him two minutes, when we play him 30 minutes, it doesn’t make any difference, he always gives his best so you have to be happy for a guy like that,” said Meralco coach Norman Black.

“I think you could see the response of his teammates when he was making shots, everybody on the team was very happy for him,” he added.

The six-year guard delivered his career game just as starter and top gunner Baser Amer was coming back from groin injury.

Amer, who missed their previous assignment, saw action for 18 minutes and scored 2 markers with 4 assists.
