Royal Hali Gaziantep played some stifling defence as they clinched their place in the quarter-final play-offs of the EuroChallenge with a 71-46 victory over BK Ventspils in Group K.

The win saw Gaziantep improve to 4-0 in the group as they secure progression with two game days to spare.

A huge second quarter was the key to their win as they outscored their hosts 24-10 to take control, with Ernest Bremer scoring all 14 of his team-high tally in the period.

Bremer scored two three-pointers in a 14-0 run early in that second period as Gaziantep went 31-15 up and added another before the break as they went into the locker rooms 41-21 up.

They continued to pull away throughout the second half as Ventspils struggled to find any rhythm, and the lead hit 30 when Terrico White's three-pointer made it 69-39 with five minutes to go.

Gaziantep held Ventspils to 18-of-49 (36.7%) shooting from the field, while they hit only 8-of-14 (57.1%) from the free throw line.

Sertac Sanli had 12 points for Gaziantep while Oliver Stevic had nine and nine rebounds.

Lorenzo Williams had 12 points for Ventspils, with Martins Laksa adding 11.
