Tofas Bursa put the finishing touches on a comprehensive two-legged victory over Rakvere Tarvas on Tuesday night and advanced to the EuroChallenge Regular Season.

The Turks prevailed 79-76 for a 33-point aggregate triumph.

Rakvere jumped out to a 25-18 lead at the end of the first quarter but by half-time, the second leg was knotted at 35-35.

The biggest lead that Rakvere had in the second half was four points, and that was short-lived with Tofas' victory in the tie never in doubt.

Austin Nichols had 14 points to lead the winners, with Josh Heytvelt adding 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Tofas will play in Group A of the EuroChallenge with Krka Novo Mesto, Michelin ETHA and Pinar Karsiyaka.
