EUROCUP QUALIFYING ROUND

Gran Canaria blew away Artland Dragons 92-65 on Tuesday night to seal their passage to the Eurocup Regular Season.

Pedro Martinez's men won the first leg last week in Germany, 61-56, so they ended up with a 32-point triumph on aggregate.

The Spanish club, hosting this game in Las Palmas, had a firm grip on the second leg late in the second quarter when they opened up a 46-33 lead.

After going to the break in front 50-41, Gran Canaria made certain there was only going to be one winner by outscoring the Dragons 24-14 in the third quarter for a 24-point advantage over the two games.

Six Gran Canaria players hit double digits in points, led by Xavier Rey with 14.

Marquez Haynes and Spencer Nelson weighed in with 10 apiece.

While Gran Canaria have advanced to the Eurocup, Artland will play in the EuroChallenge.
