JDA Dijon made it through to Round II of the EuroCup after beating Group A whipping boys CSU Asesoft Ploiesti with something to spare on Tuesday.
|Jonathan Aka had 14 points and 7 rebounds for Dijon|
It was a real team effort by the hosts, who saw six players shoot double-figure tallies.

He was helped by Maleye Ndoye (18 points) and Abdoulaye Mbaye (16 points).
Asesoft were down by seven points (25-18) at the end of the first quarter, and things got worse before the break, the hosts going into the interval 52-41 up. From then on, it was a procession for Dijon.
Bojan Obradovic was the visitors' star performer with 20 points and eight rebounds, while American guard Reginald Elliot (18 points, four rebounds and four assists) had a good all-round game.
The Romanians finish bottom of the group with a 0-6 record.
