13. Anthony Gaffney (Telekom Baskets)
Anthony Gaffney scored 26 points in just 28 minutes for Telekom Baskets Bonn

Szolnoki Olaj may have won decisively over Okapi Aalstar last week but they were no match for Telekom Baskets in Germany on Wednesday.

In the EuroChallenge Last 16 Group J game, the Bonn team led by as many as 25 before coasting to an 89-75 triumph with Anthony Gaffney scoring 26 points.

Michael Koch's side, leading 22-20 early in the second quarter, reeled off 17 of the game's next 19 points to take a vice-like grip on proceedings.

After Talor Battle scored, Benas Veikalas caught a pass from Jared Jordan and nailed a three-pointer.

Battle then followed with a lay-up for a 29-20 advantage.

Telekom Baskets kept the pressure on and took a 48-30 lead to half-time.

They were in total command the rest of the way.

Telekom Baskets, after falling in their Last 16 opener to Okapi, rebounded with a last-second, come-from-behind victory over Elan Chalon last week.

Wednesday's victory improved the club to 2-1 in Group J while Szolnoki dropped to 1-2.

Hristo Nikolov had 25 points in defeat.

Telekom Baskets had 25 assists to just seven for the Hungarian team.
