EUROCHALLENGE

Elan Chalon blew open a tight game in the fourth quarter and rolled to an 85-64 victory over Hungarians Szolnoki Olaj.

One of the hottest teams in France and the EuroChallenge, the winners got 20 points from Blake Schilb.

Abdul Aminu, who is emerging as a force in the EuroChallenge for Chalon, also had 18 points, 10 rebounds and two steals.

Chalon out-rebounded Szolnoki 47-23.

Despite their superiority on the boards, four straight points by Obie Trotter of Szolnoki cut the home side's lead to 54-53 at the end of the third quarter.

When play resumed at the start of the fourth, youngster Joffrey Lauvergne hit a jumper for the hosts.

The wheels didn't come off for the visitors until the last 6:30, though.

Leading 60-57, Lauvergne dunked and Aminu then scored on an alley-oop.

Chalon ended up outscoring Szolnoki 31-11 in the frame for a decisive victory.
