|Andre Harris paced Dijon with 17 points|
Andre Harris scored 17 points as Dijon cruised to an 83-64 victory over Shoeters Den Bosch in Group A of the EuroChallenge.
The hosts took control with a 14-0 run in the second quarter and were rarely troubled thereafter as they improved to 2-1 in the group while handing the Dutch visitors their first defeat.
Den Bosch sharp-shooter David Gonzalvez shrugged off an injury to lead his team with 17 points but it was not enough to keep up with Dijon's multi-faceted attack.
Mykal Riley added 16 for the French side while Terrance Campbell had 15 and Ferdinand Prenom 13.
Dijon enjoyed a slight edge after a close first quarter before Den Bosch replied with back-to-back baskets from Gonzalvez and an Ali Farokhmanesh three-pointer to put them on top 26-25.
But Dijon responded to that with 14 straight points, highlighted by threes from Riley and Campbell, to lead by 13 on a pair of free throws from Sambou Traore.
That was effectively that, with Den Bosch only once getting the deficit back within single figures - a fleeting moment at 48-39 early in the second half - as Dijon kept things under near complete control.
Dijon Head Coach Jean-Louis Borg:
"It was an important win tonight to continue the EuroChallenge. The score could be important at the end of the round. We were ready for our opponent in the paint."
Dijon Player Andre Harris:
"It was a good win tonight against Den Bosch who came here with a 2-0 record. Our defence was the main positive point for us."
Den Bosch Head Coach Sam Jones:
"It was difficult to win the game tonight, versus a defence that was in place, ready to face us. We committed too many turnovers tonight."
Den Bosch Player David Gonzalvez:
"It was a difficult game against a good team. We were too often absent in transition defence."
