13. Robert Dixon (Pinar Karsiyaka)
Robert Dixon once more starred for Pinar Karsiyaka with a game-high 24 points

Pinar Karsiyajka stayed perfect in Group I of the EuroChallenge Last 16 as they cruised to an 89-71 victory over Joensuun Kataja.

Robert Dixon poured in 28 points for Karsiyaka, with Jon Diebler adding 19, Can Mutaf 11 and William Thomas 10.

After Kataja opened the scoring through Daniel Coleman, Karsiyaka responded with 14 straight, 12 of them from Dixon before Thomas' jump-shot.

They moved 20-4 ahead on Evren Buker's lay-up and Kataja were all but out of it with the game barely five minutes old.

A 13-0 run in the second period powered the hosts into a 48-25 lead on Mutaf's three-pointer, and although Kataja offered some slightly stiffer resistance in the second half, the final result was already a foregone conclusion.

Jermaine Flowers scored 17 points to lead Kataja, with Petri Virtanen adding 10.
