Joventut makes 19 threepointers, sets new ACB record

ImageAnd a record it was. Joventut converted one more three pointer than the previous top mark they held (together with Barcelona and Fuenlabrada) and have now established a new Spanish league record with 19 three-point shots made in a game.

The deed happened yesterday in the ninth round of ACB during the game against Murcia which Joventut won 83 to 73 in overtime. The total of three-point shots made by "La Penya" was of 44, two less than the record set by Barcelona last season.

Latvian Kristaps Valters, who had also collaborated in the previous record while playing for Fuenlabrada, was the most inspired from behind the arc making 6 of 9 attempts. Behind him Serbian Uroš Tripković converted less one in equal number of attempts. The other contributors were Luka Bogdanović (3/7), Clay Tucker (3/9), David Jelinek (1/3) and Pere Tomàs (1/3).
