Augustas Peciukevicius poured in 25 points to lead Tartu Rock to a 99-65 rout of Sodertalje in Group C of the EuroChallenge.

Tartu never trailed as they gradually eased away in the first half before turning up the heat after the break and turning it into a demolition derby.

Janar Talts and Vincent Simpson each added 15 as five Tartu players made it to double figures.

Tartu got their noses in front early on but Sodertalje were still in touch until the midpoint of the second quarter, when Tartu rattled off nine unanswered points to take a 44-31 lead on Talts' lay-up.

The advantage was 51-39 at the break, but if Sodertalje had any designs on a second-half fightback, they were quickly dismissed as Tartu scored the first 10 points of the third quarter, leading 61-39 on another Talts lay-up.

It only got worse for the visitors, with the advantage growing to 36 when Peciukevicius made it 97-62 with a little over two minutes to go.

They showed no mercy and kept pushing to the end, Peciukevicius even putting up a late three-point attempt which might have brought up triple figures, but it was off-target.

Toni Bizaca led Sodertalje with 23 points while Assane Sene added 10.
