Royal Hali Gaziantep completed a perfect run through Group K of the EuroChallenge with a 69-60 win over Dijon.
Mutlu Akpinar poured in 21 points while Ernest Bremer had 11 with 11 assists as Gaziantep moved to 6-0 at the top of the group.
They made hard work of it, allowing Dijon to take a 29-14 first-half lead, but they drew level with a 11-0 spurt early in the third period and then pulled clear.
Dijon began to build a lead late in the first quarter, scoring eight unanswered points to go 20-12 up, and then using nine straight to go 29-14 up a little under four minutes into the second period.
That seemed to stir something in Gaziantep, who replied with nine straight of their own, but they still trailed 32-26 at half-time.
Akpinar's three then sparked the run that brought them level in the third period, with Oliver Stevic tying it at 37.
Soon after, a three from Bremer put them on top and they led 50-44 by the end of the period.
Dijon got back within one at the start of the fourth, but Bremer and Akpinar replied with three-pointers that put Gaziantep back in the clear as they eased away to victory.
Terrance Campbell led Dijon with 20 points while Mykal Riley had 11.
