BK Pardubice stayed in the hunt for the EuroChallenge Quarter-Finals by grinding out an 87-80 home triumph over BC Nizhny Novgorod.

Both sides had lost their first two games in the Last 16 against Besiktas and Fuenlabrada, and needed to win to have a realistic chance of moving on in the competition from Group K.

With 7:49 to go, BC NN's Russia international Semen Antonov made a pair of free-throws to cut the Pardubice lead to 66-65.

Pardubice then went to the line on their next two possessions and made three of four attempts before Marcus Arnold scored with a lay-up for a 71-65 advantage.

Corey Muirhead followed with four more consecutive free-throws for the hosts to finish a run that left Pardubice on top, 75-65.

BC NN got no closer than five points the rest of the way.

Pardubice finished 32 of 37 at the line, with Maurice Hampton (19 points) seven of eight and Muirhead 13 of 16.

Muirhead had 20 points and eight rebounds while Arnold had a game-high 15 boards to go with his 15 points.

BC NN were led by Michal Ignerski's game-high 28 points.

The Czechs out-rebounded BC NN 36-27.
