On the road in Poland, UNET Holon defeated Polski Cukier Torun last Tuesday and tied its opponent at 1-2 in Group A of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season 2019-20 edition. The “W” itself was certainly important, but the 122 points scored in Torun set a new record for most points in a single game.

The previous high was at 114 points, shared by Telekom Baskets Bonn, Neptunas Klaipeda and Nymburk from 2018-19, 2017-18 and 2016-17 offensive showings respectively. Avtodor Saratov put up 113 points in the 2016-17 season, while Reyer Venezia and Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem follow in the list with 2018-19 outings in the form of 111 points. 

The 227 points combined in the Israeli team’s 122-105 victory made it the highest-scoring game in BCL history as well. Holon’s collision with Venezia last season produced a total of 215 points and set the previous record.
