Where does Carleton's 41-point display rank in modern history of EuroLeague Women?

GYOR (Hungary) - Bridget Carleton caught fire for Serco UNI Gyor to score more than any other player has in EuroLeague Women in over two decades,  as she netter 41 points against KGHM BC Polkowice.

The 26-year-old Canadian ace fired her team to a 91-80 success with a spectacular effort as she went 11-of-15 from the floor, erupting from long-range and sinking eight triples from just 10 attempts.

Her amazing perimeter play contributed to her racking up a stellar performance efficiency valuation of 47 after also adding 6 rebounds and 4 steals.

But, this was all about one of the most devastating shooting nights in the modern era of the competition.

Since the 1996-97 season, it was the third highest behind Lara Mandic in 2002 who dropped 42 and modern day leader Victoria Bullet who scored a jaw-dropping 48 points for T.M.C Ahena Cesena in 1996.

Most points in a single game in the modern era of EuroLeague Women
