Edgars Jeromanovs hit a three-pointer and Oladapo Ayuba followed with a jump shot.

Petras Balocka and Ayuba continued the run with baskets to make it 56-46.

At the end of the frame, a Balocka lay-up and two free-throws by Andrew Mitchell gave Paul Burke's team a 65-50 lead.

Norrköping blew the game wide open in the fourth and ended up winning by 18.

Mitchell finished with 13 points while Balocka and Jeromanovs had 11 apiece.
