MUNICH (Germany) - Barry Stewart was red-hot from beyond the arc in a tough loss on Gameday 1, but where do his eight three-pointers stack up in the history of the competition?
Stewart's effort saw him become the 12th player to net at least eight triples in a single FIBA Europe Cup game and the first to do so since Stefan Moody went 8-of-10 for Tsmoki-Minsk almost 12 months ago.
The all-time competition record, however, is held by Spencer Butterfield after his astonishing 11-of-13 feat in the 2016-17 edition in a 39-point haul for Nanterre 92.
The American's lights out performance came less than a week after John Roberson had set the record for Chalon with 10-of-11 and the duo shared the competition scoring record with 39 apiece until Rashawn Thomas hit 40 earlier last season.
Joey King still holds onto his podium spot for perimeter splashes with his nine makes also coming in the 2016-17 season with Kataja.
Back in the inaugural season a year earlier, Thaddeus McFadden became the first player to fire in eight three-pointers in a game in November, 2015 with DJ Newbill, Brady Heslip, Tony Bizaca, Drew Barham, Erving Walker and Nemanja Vranjes also part of the select club.
