Eshaya Murphy came up with the goods yet again for Perfumerias Avenida who protected their unbeaten home record with a 97-70 victory against Kibirkstis-VICI Vilnius in EuroLeague Women Group C.

Recently recalled to the Montenegro national team squad, the in-form Murphy accumulated 32 points to help claim a fifth home win and condemn the struggling visitors to a sixth successive loss.

The visitors had actually come out on top 25-24 in a real shoot-out during the first ten minutes of action, but Avenida absolutely love playing at Pabellon Wurzburg and they gradually turned the screw at both ends of the floor.

Led by Murphy, they gradually built a double-digit lead and outscored their Lithuanian opponents 24-12 in the second quarter.

It was a similar pattern when the teams re-emerged from the locker room and with both Angelica Robinson and Krystal Thomas controlling the glass to great effect, there was to be no way back for Kibirkstis who fell to a sixth straight loss.

Avenida comfortably increased their advantage as the game fizzled out, making sure they thoroughly avenged their loss at Kibirsktis earlier in the season.

Only Vita Kuktiene provided any real resistance with 16 points for the losing side.
