CSU Mobitelco surprised BC Enisey 81-73 in Russia on Tuesday to spark their EuroChallenge campaign into life.

Losers in their first two games, the Romanian club prevailed to leave both sides with 1-2 records in Group E.

CSU had lost their first game at home to Elan Chalon by just four points but last week in Belgium, they crashed to an 87-63 defeat at Antwerp Giants.

Their performance against Enisey was much improved.

A three-ball from guard Andrey Komarovskiy had put the Krasnoyarsk team in front, 69-66, with 4:35 to play but Vladimir Mijovic came to the rescue for CSU.

First he scored with a jump shot after collecting an offensive rebound and then, he buried a shot from the arc for a 71-69 lead.

Following a lay-up by teammate Kyndall Dykes, Mijovic capped the 9-0 CSU run with another three-pointer for a 76-69 advantage.

The 26-year-old Serbian center wasn't done.

After Jasmin Hukic made one of two free-throws for Enisey, Mijovic caught a pass from David Lawrence and drilled another jump shot to take his points haul to a game-high 24 and stretch the visitors' advantage to 78-70.

Enisey were led by Lonny Baxter's 23 points.

Long-range shooting played a big part in the outcome with CSU making nine of 26 and Enisey just three of 22.
