A EuroLeague Women career-high 30 points from Eshaya Murphy helped Perfumerias Avenida take a 74-55 success against WBC Novi Zagreb to erase the memory of their nightmare loss in Vilnius.

The Salamanca side were soundly thrashed in their previous Group C game, but responded in real style with the efforts of Murphy and a one-sided final quarter proving enough to take the win.

The hosts initially opened up a healthy 24-14 lead, but the excellent Luca Ivankovic tied the game up at 33-33 shortly before the clubs hitting the locker rooms at the break.

The game was still locked at 46-46 late in the third period, but a 16-2 run by Avenida in the last quarter put the outcome to bed.

Murphy completed a memorable night of work by also hauling down 10 rebounds and Krystal Thomas contributed with some outstanding work on the glass with 15 boards.

Ivankovic finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Croatians, but they were left ruing 23 turnovers as Marta Fernandez and Marta Xargay combined for nine steals.
