BC Nizhny Novgorod will go into the Last 16 of the EuroChallenge on a high after beating BK Ventspils in a battle for first place on Tuesday.

The Russian club won at home, 77-63, to leapfrog the Latvian outfit into top spot in Group D.

Both sides finished with 4-2 records and each claimed a victory against the other, but BC NN won the group because of an advantage in goal differential in their two meetings.

Ventspils, who were led by Samuel Willard's 14 points, and BC NN had already sealed a place in the next phase of the competition before Tuesday's game.

Zoran Lukic's men took command with a dominating display in the second quarter when they outscored Ventspils 21-7 for a 41-29 lead.

BC NN twice in front by 18 in the fourth quarter before walking off the court with a 14-point triumph.

Ernest Bremer finished with 15 points to lead BC NN.

The 1.88m guard didn't explode from long range as he did last week when nailing seven of 11 three-balls in a victory over Khimik, but Bremer was two of three from the arc on Tuesday and also had nine assists.

Semen Antonov finished with 14 points for BC NN and both Fedor Klyuchnikov and Artem Yakovenko contributed 11 apiece.
