Edo Muric led KRKA Novo Mesto to the top of Group F with 17 points
KRKA Novo Mesto used some stifling defence as they cruised to a 58-41 win over Fortress Jaszberenyi that lifts them to 2-0 in EuroChallenge Group F.
The visitors led from start to finish, with the advantage in double figures from the mid-point of the second quarter as Fortress were permitted to make only 18 shots from the field all night while being harassed into 27 turnovers.
Mesto wasted little time in setting the tone as three-pointers from Edo Muric, Jasmin Hukic and Matej Rojc powered them into a 13-2 lead.
Hukic's dunk late in the first half made it 29-15 and it was already apparent that this was not going to be the hosts' night.
They had to content themselves to a handful of morale-boosting plays, chief among them a big three from Adam Szogi that cut the gap to 37-27 midway through the third period before Mesto replied with six in a row.
The visitors really piled it on at the start of the fourth quarter, with a 9-0 burst making it 56-31 on Zvonko Buljan's jump-shot before the starters hit the bench and Fortress made some small in-roads into a lead already well out of hand.
Muric led Mesto with 17 points while Rastko Dramicanin had 11 and Milos Markovic 10 with 10 rebounds for Fortress.
