Fenerbahce celebrated stretching their perfect record to a terrific ten wins as they preserved their unbeaten status in style with a 76-50 rout of shell-shocked Basket Lattes Montpellier Agglomeration.

The French visitors were behind from tip to buzzer as the Istanbul powerhouse demonstrated once again why they are considered as one of the tournament front runners.

Fenerbahce exposed the gap in class between the teams by romping into a commanding 20-7 lead and were then able to engage cruise control for the remainder of the game.

It meant Spanish play-caller Roberto Iniguez was able to take an opportunity to give a rest to some of his big-hitters and dish out a big spread of minutes across his entire roster.

Even when the Group B winners eased off the accelerator in the third quarter to be outscored 21-17, they reacted by imposing themselves yet again on their opponents by dominating during the last ten minutes to re-enforce their superiority.

The Fenerbahce frontcourt was particularly outstanding, with Quanitra Hollingsworth enjoying a perfect night.

Combined with Anastasiya Verameyenka and Isabelle Yacoubou, the trio amassed 32 points from a brilliant 15-of-18 floor shooting display.

Latvian veteran Gunta Basko-Melnbarde continued her recent good form with 16 points for BLMA, whose play-off chances continue to hang in the balance.
