Khimik End Dynamo's Perfect Record

Khimik Yuzhny led from start to finish as Dynamo Moscow Region's 100% record in Group B was consigned to the history books on Wednesday night.

Goran Cakic (Khimik Yuzhny)
Goran Cakic led Khimik with 21 points.
Goran Cakic paced Khimik with 21 points and five rebounds as the Ukrainian outfit claimed a deserved 93-82 victory over a Dynamo side that had won their opening four matches.

Dynamo need not worry about the loss though, as they are already guaranteed a spot in the next round courtesy of their flying start to the competition.

Belgian side Spirou Charleroi are also through from Group B, meaning Khimik, who now have a 2-3 record, are playing only for pride.

But Zvezdan Mitrovic's side can be pleased with their display on Wednesday, which also helped them gain revenge for Dynamo's 91-75 victory in the first meeting between the two.

Andriy Korochkin opened the scoring with a jump shot in the second minute, and he would go on to score six points in the opening six minutes to help put Khimik in control at 12-3 ahead.

That gave Khimik the platform to dominate, and dominate they did.

The home side built a 26-14 advantage by the end of the first period, and only saw that 12-point buffer finally reduced in the final five minutes of the match.

And even then, the closest Russian side Dynamo would get was in the final minute when a Audrius Giedraitis three-pointer cut Khimik's advantage to nine points at 91 82.

Khimik stayed in the box seat though and their final 11-point win was a fair reflection of the dominance enjoyed by the home side, who spent most of the final three periods boasting a lead of around 20 points.

Aside from Cakic, Korochkin and Cedric Henderson also stood out for Khimik.

Korochkin poured in 18 points and collected three rebounds, while Henderson added 14 points and four boards.

Denis Khloponin and Roderick Blakney both contributed 16 points for Dynamo, with Khloponin also adding a match-high eight rebounds.
