BC Telenet Oostende clinched their seventh consecutive win in the EuroChallenge on Tuesday night to book their place in the Quarter-Finals.

The Belgian side defeated BK Prostejov 87-85 to improve to 4-0 in Group L.

Caleb Green poured in a season-high 27 points for the home side, having torched BC Zadar for 26 in his previous European outing.

Green, 25, hit four of eight shots from long range.

He also led his team with eight rebounds.

William Thomas weighed in with 19 points and six rebound for Oostende.

Prostejov, who upset Lokomotiv Kuban in their previous EuroChallenge game, stayed in the hunt until the end.

The visitors' Eugene Lawrence took his points haul to a team-high 18 with two free-throws to knot the game at 76-76 with 3:49 to go.

Oostende had the answer, though.

Quentin Serron raced in for a fast-break lay-up and then Thomas added a free-throw as the hosts took the lead for good.

Prostejov fell to 1-3 in Group L with the setback.
