JDA Dijon finished a tough EuroChallenge Group D campaign on a high as they topped Tartu Rock 83-61 for what was only their second win.

Their visitors knew before tip-off that their Last 16 hopes were over thanks to Khimik Yuzhne's victory over Gaz Metan Medias and Dijon made the most of their disappointment to take a straightforward win.

They took control with a 14-2 run as Jeremy Leloup's three put them up 19-10 before Ferdinand Prenom added a lay-up to start the second period.

Tartu scrapped their way back into it in the second period and Timo Eichfuss made it 34-29 with a lay-up 69 seconds from half-time.

But Dijon re-established their superiority after the break, with Paul Miller's tip-in from Andre Harris' miss making it a double-digit lead once more at 42-31 before Harris hit back-to-back jump-shots to increase the advantage.

Lens Aboudou then hit two quick three-pointers, the second giving Dijon a 54-35 edge as they began to take complete control.

The lead grew to as much as 78-49 when Zacherie Moss sank a hook shot with 6:08 left in the game, and Tartu's disappointing night was complete.

Aboudou led Dijon with 19 points while Miller, Larry Owens and Prenom had 11 each, Terrance Campbell adding 10.

Eichfuss had 14 points for Tartu with Tanel Kurbas collecting 13.
