EWE Baskets Oldenburg raced away in the first quarter and never looked back as they opened their EuroChallenge Group L campaign with a 74-64 victory over Tsmoki-Minsk.

The hosts wasted no time in taking control of the game with Rickey Paulding's jump-shot putting them up 11-2 six minutes into the game.

Adam Chubb's lay-up three minutes later made it 18-6, and they then scored the first four points of the second quarter to go 22-8 up on Julius Jenkins' jump-shot.

They held their biggest lead when Dominik Bahiense de Mello's lay-up made it 26-11 early in the second quarter.

Minsk responded in a bid to stay alive, with Aliaksei Lashkevich scoring five points in an 11-0 run that made it 26-22 on Aliaksandr Pustahvar's lay-up.

They cut the gap to just one point early in the third quarter with Lashkevich's lay-up making it 35-34, but that sparked a response from EWE Baskets as Paulding hit a three and Chubb followed with a lay-up.

Their lead was out to 48-36 when Robin Smeulders made a lay-up midway through the third period.

Minsk would briefly get the gap back to four in the fourth quarter but EWE Baskets were able to see out the win comfortably enough.

Christopher Kramer finished with 18 points for the victors while Paulding had 16, Jenkins 13, Smeulders 11 and Chubb 10.

Lashkevich led Minsk with 17 points, Pustahvar had 16 and Aliaksandr Kudrautsau 12.
