PRESS RELEASE | Sep 21, 2018
Juskevicius ties three-point record with 9!
It was the kind of night that shooters dream about.

Adas Juskevicius of Lietkabelis Panevezys was not known, in his five previous seasons between the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup, as an elite marksman.

But he will be known after Tuesday night for being "in the zone" as much as anyone in Euroleague Basketball history.

Juskevicius hit 7 three-pointers in a row in the first quarter on Tuesday on the way to tying the 7DAYS EuroCup record with 9 total while leading his team to a 86-79 victory over visiting Buducnost VOLI Podgorica.

Juskevicius hit a couple of two-pointers without a miss to finish with 31 points, shattering his previous EuroCup career high of 20. His point total was the most ever by a Lietkabelis player in EuroCup play, as well.

His final 9 for 13 tally from the three-point arc put him among four players who share the EuroCup single-game record. Ruben Douglas made 9 of 12 for Pamesa Valencia on December 4, 2007, and Jimmy McKinney of Bonn matched him on December 9, 2015. Marko Popovic of Unics Kazan hit 9 of 14 for UNICS Kazan on November 24, 2009.

Juskevicius more than doubled his previous best three-point total, 4, in a EuroCup game. This is his fourth season in the competition. He played previously in the EuroCup with BC Rupudis and Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius, both of his native Lithuania, as is Zalgiris Kaunas, with whom he played two EuroLeague seasons.
