|Artur Drozdov was one of four Ukrainian players scoring in double figures|
Ukraine pulled away in the fourth quarter as they wrapped up their successful EuroBasket Qualification Round Group C campaign with a 69-51 win over Cyprus.
Ukraine had already booked their ticket to Slovenia with a victory over Austria last weekend.
With their progression already secured, it was a largely subdued performance from Ukraine as they laboured against winless Cyprus, who started the second quarter on a 7-1 spurt to take a 20-19 lead on Panagiotis Trisokkas' three-pointer.
Ukraine's lead was just 28-27 at half-time and Cyprus took the lead twice more before ending the third quarter trailing 41-37 after Dmytro Zabirchenko split his free throws for Ukraine.
But the hosts started the final period on a charge, scoring 10 unanswered points to lead 51-37 on Maxym Korniyenko's dunk.
A three-pointer from Korniyenko stretched it to 61-42 with 4:33 left and there was no way back for Cyprus.
Steven Burtt led Ukraine with 13 points while Korniyenko had 12, Sergii Gladyr 11 and Artur Drozdov 10.
Trisokkas led Cyrprus with 15 points while Anthony King added 14 and Andreas Sizopoulos 10.
