Domen Lorbek chipped in 10 points for Royal Hali Gaziantep

Royal Hali Gaziantep improved to 3-0 at the top of Group K in the EuroChallenge Last 16 as they saw off struggling Dijon 82-76.

Baris Ermis poured in 20 points for Gaziantep who pulled away in the final minutes to keep Dijon winless.

The form book always pointed to a win for the visitors but Dijon made sure it did not come easy in a fiercely contested game where neither team led by more than seven.

Instead they remained locked together, with 12 lead changes and 11 ties, and it was Dijon who held the edge for most of the way.

After Domen Lorbek had tied the game with 3:54 to go, Mykal Riley split a pair of free throws to give Dijon what would prove to be their final lead of the game.

Gaziantep seized control with eight quick points, five from the hand of Ermis, to lead 73-66 with 2:17 to go.

Dijon thrice got the deficit back to four in the final minutes, but Gaziantep held their nerve at the free throw line as Ernest Bremer and Lorbek made crucial shots to salt the win away.

Bremer finished with 13 points for Gaziantep while Dejan Borovnjak had 11 and Lorbek 10.

Riley and Andre Harris had 14 each for Dijon with Zacherie Moss adding 11 and Terrance Campbell 10.
