Artur Drozdov posted 22 points to push BC Kyiv to a crucial 87-66 home win over Artland Dragons on Tuesday that gave the hosts sole possession of first place in Group H. Kyiv, which entered the game tied with Artland for first place, improved to 4-1. Next up for Kyiv is Benetton Tamoil. Meanwhile the Dragons, now at 3-2, visit Pau-Orthez next week. Kyiv exploded for an 18-2 run early in the third quarter to take control of the game for good. Pooh Jeter played all 40 minutes and scored 16 for the winners, while Manuchar Markoishvili posted 12 and Joshua Davis and Marcus Faison 9 apiece for BC Kyiv. Artland Dragons got 15 from Earl Rowland and 10 from Adam Chubb.

Paul Johnson gave the Dragons an early 4-8 advantage, but Drozdov pushed the hosts ahead 9-8 at the midway point of the quarter. John Goldsberry hit from downtown before Faison tied it at 16-16. The first period finished with Kyiv ahead 22-18 thanks to a three-point-play from big man Jacob Jaacks. Early in the second quarter, Markoishvili enlarged the cushion to 25-19, but Rich Melzer from the foul line and Darius Hall kept Artland close. Jeter's triple made it 39-30 and Kyiv remained in front 43-35 at halftime. Jeter extended the difference for the first time to double figures at the beginning of the third quarter and again fueled his side from downtown to go up 52-37. Jeter capped the 18-2 run from mid range to make it 61-37. Artland tried to respond, getting 5 points in a row from Rowland, but a three-point-play by Drozdov made it 69-46 after 30 minutes. Lamont Mcintosh scored a triple for Artland early in the fourth, but the game was practically over with Vladimir Krstic scoring from beyond the arc for Kyiv and Drozdov adding points to his tally in the closing minutes.

Head Coaches

MAHORIC, TOMO
BC Kyiv
"First of all, I want to congratulate my players - they did a really good job. We won by more than 20 points, but I want to say that Artland is a very well tactically-prepared team, maybe the best we played this season. The third quarter was crucial, but during the last quarter we needed to control the rhythm of the game, that's why Pooh Jeter played all 40 minutes. Now we have a good position in the group, but to be sure, that we are in the next round, we need to win more two games. I hope, that we will do this as soon as possible."
FLEMING, CHRIS
Artland Dragons
"BC Kyiv is the best team we played so far. They have a really good roster, they play very balanced on offense and very smart on defense. We have a lot of young players and this game is a very good lesson for us. But now we still have good chances to be in the next round and we will fight for this."

JETER, POOH

"I agree with coach. Artland is a really strong opponent. Tonight the main thing was that we played totally according to our plan. All this time we worked very hard, and we will continue, because the season is very long and in the future we'll have a lot of important games against good teams."
ROWLAND, EARL
Artland Dragons
"I agree with the coach. We played against a very strong team and it's a good lesson for us. So we'll continue working hard and will try to improve our goals to be in the next round."
