Triumph needed the win to keep their hopes alive and Jerry Jefferson made sure they'd get it, with a double-double of 28 points and 10 rebounds

Triumph Lyubertsy kept alive their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals of the EuroChallenge with a 79-60 win over Antwerp Giants.

Needing a win to stay alive, Triumph set about earning it with a 13-2 run early in the first quarter, moving 17-6 clear on Sergey Karasev's jump-shot.

When Karasev hit a three-pointer late in the second quarter the gap had grown to 16, 42-26.

Antwerp threatened a rally early in the fourth quarter when Byran Hopkins scored a three-pointer and a lay-up to make it 60-54.

But Triumph responded with 11 straight points, highlighted by a three-pointer from Kyle Landry, to effectively put the game to bed.

Jerry Jefferson led Triumph with 28 points and 10 rebounds, while Karasev had 19 points.

Hopkins had 14 points for Antwerp, with Darnell Wilson adding 11 and seven rebounds.

Triumph now need Artland Dragons to beat Pinar Karsiyaka to advance.
