CSK-VVS Samara blew out PAOK 80-61 on Tuesday to stay in the hunt for first place in Group A of the EuroCup Qualifying Round.
Already assured of progressing, the Russians will now be hoping that Tartu Rock slip up in their last game against Lappeenranta, which would allow the Samara outfit to take top spot of the group heading into the Quarter Final Round.
Turkey international Ibrahim Kutluay poured in 15 points to lead PAOK to an 80-76 win over Lappeenranta in Tuesday's EuroCup Qualifying Round Group A game.
Both teams went into the contest with no chance of progressing to the next round.
The emerging basketball force in Europe known as Tartu Rock University claimed another victory on Tuesday in the EuroCup to stay top of Group A in the Qualifying Round.
George Tsintsadze had 21 points and six assists for Tartu in a 90-80 win over PAOK - their second victory over the Greek outfit.
Ibrahim Kutluay has been a popular player at every stop in his long career.
The Turkey international, who is best known for his clutch shooting, has played in his homeland, and also competed in Greece and for a brief time with the Seattle Supersonics in the NBA.
