EWE Baskets put on a master class peformance in the second half to beat Telekom Baskets 82-65 on the road and move to 2-0 in Group L of the EuroChallenge.

A tight opening 20 minutes left Telekom with a 33-31 advantage at half-time, but if the home fans were hopeful of their team hanging on to the narrow lead they had held most of the way, they would be sorely disappointed.

The visitors nosed in front twice but it was not until midway through the third period that they made their decisive break.

Jared Jordan's three-pointer for Telekom made it 44-43 to the visitors, but Ronald Burrell's three then sparked a 21-6 run to the end of the period, with a three from Julius Jenkins making it 65-49 just before the buzzer.

They then scored the first seven points of the fourth quarter and the game was all but up for Telekom.

Adam Chubb led EWE Baskets with 14 points while Burrell and Rickey Paulding had 12 each and Dominik Bahiense de Mello 10.

Kyle Weems had 14 points for Telekom with Robert Vaden adding 11.
