Mad-Croc Fuenlabrada stayed perfect in Group K of the EuroChallenge as they topped BK Pardubice 85-70 in Spain.

Adrian Laso came up with 23 points and nine rebounds to help the group leaders, who have already qualified for the next round, to a straightforward victory.

They used a huge second quarter to break the game open. Pardubice scored the first five points of the period but were outscored 29-11 the rest of the way to half-time as the hosts came alive.

Laso scored back-to-back dunks amid a 10-0 sprint that ended the half.

Pardubice did not go away, and battled their back to within single figures at the start of the fourth quarter when Ondrej Peterka's three-pointer made it 69-61 before he split a pair of free throws to leave a seven-point difference.

That was soon wiped out by a Leonardo Mainoldi tip-in from Sergio Sanchez's missed lay-up and a Kirk Penney lay-up, and the hosts held Pardubice at arm's length the rest of the way.

Mainoldi scored 18 points for Fuenlabrada while Penney added 12.

Maurice Hampton led Pardubice with 20 points while Corey Muirhead had 13, Marcus Arnold 12 and Peterka 11.
