Vincent Simpson shared a game-high 20 points for Körmend

Kormend have taken control of the fight for second place in Group F and a berth in the Last 16 of the EuroChallenge.

The Hungarians used a huge fourth quarter to overcome their compatriots Szolnoki Olaj - their rivals for second place - 94-83 on the road in a huge result. 

They had trailed 68-60 late in the third quarter and 71-65 at the start of the fourth, but dug deep for a potentially decisive win.

Szolnoki were looking good for a win which would have given them command of their destiny when Ernests Kalve made it an eight-point game with a dunk with three minutes left in the third quarter. 

Marton Bader's lay-up had them up by six to start the fourth quarter.

But things changed with a 10-0 Kormend run - capped by Csaba Ferencz's three-pointer that put them up 78-75. 

Bader would bring the hosts level again at 81 but seconds later a three from Andras Rujak set off an 8-0 Kormend run that had them up 89-81 with 1:45 left, from which point they saw it out from the free throw line.

Vincent Simpson and Zvonko Buljan had 20 points apiece while Matthew Shaw added 18 for Kormend. Ferencz collected 17.

Akos Horvath and Kalve had 20 points each for Szolnoki, with Bader adding 13 and 12 rebounds.
