Flawless Pinar Karsiyaka March On

William Thomas and Pinar Karsiyaka kept their record clean at 3-0

There was no trouble for EuroChallenge Group A leaders Pinar Karsiyaka as they claimed a third straight success of the season to preserve their perfect record via an 86-59 blowout of ETHA in Cyprus.

In line with their impressive domestic work in the Turkish League, the visitors made light work of despatching the still winless hosts.

Once a three-pointer by Caner Topaloglu put them 34-22 in front, they easily managed to keep their opponent at arms' length - even if ETHA did threaten the visitors' dominance when they immediately tried to reel them back in with seven unanswered points.

But, Karsiyaka simply put their foot back on the accelerator and as they shifted through the gears, the home team was unable to keep pace - and particularly when the Turkish club made an eye-popping six consecutive three-pointers during the third quarter.

Umit Sonkol and Robert Dixon led the way, sharing eight triples and 38 points.

Howard Johnson had nine points and 10 rebounds for ETHA.
