Zoran Krstanovic and CSU Mobitelco were with their back against the wall but got themselves some room to breathe with the road win in Krasnoyarsk

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.
