Pinar Karsiyaka sealed their place in the Quarter-Finals of the EuroChallenge by winning at Dexia Mons-Hainaut on Tuesday.

The Turkish club prevailed 87-76 to end Last 16 play with a 4-2 record and a second-place finish in Group J behind Krka Novo Mestoa (5-1), who won against Antwerp in their game.

Dexia only had a slim chance of progressing.

They not only needed a triumph, but a 24-point margin of victory because of Karsiyaka's 94-71 home win over the Belgians back on February 1.

On Tuesday, Karsiyaka were led by Andre Smith's 23 points and 12 rebounds while Osiris Eldridge contributed 20 points and Jovo Stanojevic 15.

David Holston also had a nice performance with 13 points, six assists and eight boards.

For Dexia, Ron Lewis had 18 points.
