VALMIERA, Latvia — Amari Williams had an EYBL career-high 18 points to go with eight rebounds and six assists and Myerscough raced past SPB University 96-46 to open Stage III on Friday morning.

Sanmi Fajana added 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting and six boards for Myerscough (10-1), which match its largest winning streak in the league at eight games. Bradley Kaboza and Franklin Agu each had 14 points and combined for 16 rebounds.

Iliya Smirnitsky had a game-high 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting, but SBP (0-10) shot just 29 percent as a team. Timofey Kritsky scored 10 points.
