The biggest surprise of round 7 was guest Banvit BK's (6-1) road victory over 3rd placed Karsiyaka (5-2) 68-66 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Karsiyaka. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. American guard Keith Simmons (196-85, college: Holy Cross, agency: Interperformances) fired a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American-Azerbaijani center Charles Davis (205-84, college: Alabama) chipped in 11 points. Banvit BK's coach Orhun Ene used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. American point guard Bobby Dixon (178-83, college: Troy, agency: Beo Basket) produced 25 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Banvit BK have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Anadolu Efes and Fener.Ulker. Karsiyaka at the other side dropped to the fifth position with two games lost. Banvit BK is looking forward to face Tofas (#9) in Bursa in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Karsiyaka will play on the road against Hacettepe (#11) in Ankara and is hoping to win this game.
Undefeated leader Galatasaray delivered the seventh consecutive victory. This time they beat 16th ranked Mersin (1-6) 84-73 in Istanbul. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard David Hawkins (194-82, college: Temple) who helped to win the game recording 14 points and 6 assists. Ersin Dagli contributed with 10 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks for the winners. Galatasaray's coach Ergin Ataman allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Naturalized American forward Ali Karadeniz (203-80, college: Arizona) answered with 20 points and 9 rebounds for Mersin. The victory was the seventh consecutive win for Galatasaray. They maintain first place with 7-0 record. Mersin at the other side stay at the bottom position with six games lost. They share it with Gaziantep. Galatasaray will play against Besiktas (#6) in Istanbul in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Mersin will play on the road against Antalya (#14) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Bursa between Tofas and Gaziantep. Eleventh ranked Tofas (3-4) got a very close home victory over 15th ranked Gaziantep (1-6). Tofas managed to escape with a 1-point win 77-76 on Saturday evening. It was a great evening for Joshua Heytvelt who led his team to a victory scoring 19 points and 9 rebounds. At the losing side Charles Rhodes responded with 20 points and 8 rebounds. Tofas moved-up to seventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Gaziantep lost their third game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the fifteenth position with six games lost. They share it with Mersin. Tofas will meet higher ranked Banvit BK (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Gaziantep will play against Fenerbahce Ulker (#3) in Istanbul.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Ankara, where higher ranked TED Kolejliler (3-4) lost at home to fourteenth ranked Antalya (2-5) 89-93. It was an exceptional evening for Jordan Theodore who led the winners and scored 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. TED Kolejliler's coach Ercument Sunter rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Antalya moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Newly promoted TED Kolejliler dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. Antalya's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Mersin (#16) in Akdeniz which should be theoretically an easy game.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Istanbul. Local Fenerbahce Ulker (6-1) outscored 12th ranked Turk Telekom (2-5) 103-81 on Sunday night. Bojan Bogdanovic fired 18 points for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Fenerbahce Ulker moved-up to second place, which they share with Anadolu Efes and Banvit BK. Loser Turk Telekom dropped to the eleventh position with five games lost. Fenerbahce Ulker will face Gaziantep (#15) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Turk Telekom will play against Olin Edirne (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games of round 7 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:

Besiktas - Hacettepe 69-63

There was no surprise in Istanbul where 11th ranked Hacettepe (2-5) was defeated by sixth ranked Besiktas (4-3) 69-63 on Monday. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 21-13 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Bosnian-Croatian forward Damir Markota (209-85) fired a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 rebounds for the winners.

Defending champion maintains sixth place with 4-3 record. Hacettepe lost their third game in a row. They keep the eleventh position with five games lost. Besiktas will face league's leader Galatasaray in Istanbul in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hacettepe will play at home against Karsiyaka (#5).
