James White was one of five players to score in double figures for Reggio Emilia

Reggio Emilia turned in a dominant performance as they opened Group J of the EuroChallenge with a 90-68 victory over Szolnoki Olaj.

Rimantas Kaukenas scored 19 points, Michele Antonutti had 18 and James White 17 as the hosts took the lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

Szolnoki led 10-7 five minutes into the contest, but Reggio reeled off 11 straight points, capped by White's dunk to go 18-10 up, and the pattern was set.

Another big run midway through the second quarter saw the lead balloon to 37-22 when Troy Bell reeled off seven of his 11 points in a row.

A jump-shot from Greg Brunner made it 51-35 early in the third quarter and they were not done there.

White's three-point play late in the third quarter made it 66-43, the biggest lead of the night.

Szolnoki began the final stanza with a seven-point burst, a sign that Reggio were easing off, but the result had long since been determined.

Willie Warren collected 23 points for the visitors but was the only Szolnoki player to reach double figures.
