Andre Smith was the top scorer for Krasnye Krylia

Krasnye Krylia made light work of continuing their perfect start in EuroChallenge Group B after they racked up a fifth straight success with a comfortable 97-72 success against CSU Asesoft Poliesti.

The hosts were rampant from tip to buzzer, their superiority highlighted by the fact that no fewer than seven players reached double digits.

Andre Smith led the way, making seven of nine from the floor, and top scoring with 16 points as the Russians showcased their strength in depth.

There was little doubt about the result after a red-hot start to the game by the home team, who raced into a commanding 24-10 first quarter lead.

Whilst the visitors competed much better during the second period, Krasnye Krylia put their foot back on the accelerator after the interval, outscoring their opponents 26-15 during the third quarter.

That effectively decided the contest ten minutes ahead of schedule, and especially with Aaron Miles pulling the strings to great effect, dishing up seven assists for the winning team.

Robert Nyakundi stood out for the losing team with a creditable 16-point haul.
