Markoishvili scored 17 points and Kenan Bajramovic 13 for Kyiv, who improved to 2-1 in EuroChallenge Group H.

Skyliners, who out-rebounded Kyiv 41-34, dropped to 1-2.

Pascal Roller and Lorenzo Gordon each had 12 points for the Frankfurt team.

Gordon and Konrad Wysocki (eight points) each had nine rebounds.

Kyiv finished 11 of 24 from long range while Skyliners hit five of 22.
