Leicester Riders strolled to a 107-38 victory over winless Surrey United in the BBL Championship.

Leicester led 24-4 after the first quarter and 49-15 at half-time before rubbing salt in the wounds with a 30-6 final quarter.

Connor Washington scored 16 points, Rashad Hassan 15 and Anthony Downing 14 as the Riders shared the workload, with six players reaching double figures.

Only Ceslovas Kucinskas (15) emerged with any pride for Surrey, with Ignas Sijanas going zero-of-nine on field goal shots to epitomise his side's woes.
