Among the favorites to go deep in the competition, the Spanish outfit led by 25 points before coasting to an 89-75 triumph.

Gustavo Ayon and Leo Mainoldi also poured in 10 points apiece for the Madrid-based club.

The Dolphins, who are coached by Paul Burke, did have their moments.

An Andrew Mitchell three-pointer gave the Swedish outfit a 19-16 lead seven minutes into the contest.

Fuenlabrada answered with a 9-0 run.

The Dolphins didn't go away, though, with a Mikko Riipinen tying the encounter at 27-27 with 7:00 to play in the second quarter.

Veteran Lubos Barton replied with a shot from the arc and Mexico international Ayon followed with six straight points for a 36-27 Fuenlabrada lead.
