BCM Gravelines Dunkerque are on the verge of a place in the last 16 of EuroChallenge after an 83-67 road win over Tsmoki-Minsk.

The French side bust open a tight game with a dominant fourth quarter performance as they swept to victory, improving to 3-1 at the top of the group.

The two teams went into this clash level in the standings and they could barely be separated through the first three quarters.

When someone did threaten to break away, it was Minsk.

They led 25-18 on Aliaksandr Pustahvar's lay-up early in the second quarter - only to see Gravelines respond with a 10-0 run - and then 49-41 on Aliaksei Lashkevich's driving lay-up midway through the third, a lead again quickly wiped out as Gravelines scored seven straight.

Minsk were up 59-55 when Pavel Ulyanko hit a three-pointer late in the third quarter, but Yannick Bokolo's lay-up cut the gap before the buzzer and proved to be the start of a 12-0 run that had them up 67-59 on Sarra Camara's lay-up.

When Mbaye followed a three-pointer with a fast-break lay-up the lead had stretched to 72-61 and Gravelines were on their way to victory, ultimately outscoring Minsk 26-8 in the final 10 minutes.

Mbaye led Gravelines with 16 points while Bokolo had 14, David Noel and Dwight Buycks 12 each.

Ulyanko had 19 points for Minsk, with Lashkevich collecting 11.
