KRKA Novo Mesto clinched top spot in EuroChallenge Group J on Tuesday night with a blowout win over hosts Antwerp Giants.

The Slovenian outfit improved to 5-1 in the Last 16 group with a 64-45 victory.

KRKA needed to win to take first place ahead of Pinar Karsiyaka, who won their game at Dexia Mons-Hainaut on Tuesday.

Chris Booker poured in 13 points and Zoran Dragic had 10 rebounds to go with his nine points for KRKA.

The visitors took control early against an Antwerp side that had no chance of progressing.

By the end of the first quarter, KRKA had a 20-9 lead.

They only went to half-time with a 28-22 lead but pulled away in the second half for a big victory.

Antwerp fell to 1-5 in the Last 16 with the setback.
