Keravnos Strovolou Nicosia will not be advancing to the Last 16 in the EuroChallenge, but they gave the home crowd something to cheer about with their 76-52 demolition of BC Kyiv on Tuesday.
BC Kyiv (2-4) went into the game with the inside track to second place in Group H ahead of KK Zagreb because in their two meetings, they had a superior goal differential.

Krunoslav Simon exploded for 29 points as KK Zagreb cruised to a 71-61 win over BC Kyiv in their EuroChallenge Group H clash.
Simon made six of 10 shots from three-point range and scored the bulk of his points early to take the wind out of Kyiv's challenge.
