Pinar Karsiyaka left no doubt about their potential to go all the way in this season's EuroChallenge by romping to a 94-71 victory over Dexia Mons-Hainaut in the Last 16 on Tuesday.

The Turkish club got 19 points apiece from Jovo Stanojevic and Andre Smith as they improved to 3-0 in Group J and dropped Dexia to 1-2.

The Karsiyaka defense forced Dexia to turn the ball over 23 times, including a game-high six by Marcus Hatten.

The 21-year-old Birkan Batuk had four steals and Osiris Eldridge came up with three for Karsiyaka.

Dexia trailed by 16 in the first half before reducing the deficit to 46-36 at the break on a four-point play by Ben McCauley.

Arik Shivek's side never managed to get the Karsiyaka lead to single digits, though.

The hosts, on top 61-45 with 5:21 to go in the third quarter, blew the game wide open with a 10-0 run.

McCauley finished with 19 points for Dexia.
