There was a change at the TB2L leadership position after last games. Round 11 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Selcuk Universitesi (9-2). They were defeated by third ranked Maliye Milli (9-2) 94-90 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Selcuk Universitesi. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 9-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 94-90. It was a great evening for center Hakan Yapar (202-84) who led his team to a victory scoring 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Zach Graham (198-89, college: Mississippi) helped adding 23 points and 5 rebounds. American Bill Clark (195-88, college: Duquesne) responded with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Maliye Milli have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Darussafaka and Selcuk Univ. Selcuk Universitesi will play next round against Gelisim trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Maliye Milli will try to continue on its current victory against eighteenth ranked Izmir BSB on the road.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Usak (8-3) against fifteenth ranked Final Genclik (4-7) on Friday night. Visiting Usak was defeated by Final Genclik in a tough game in Bursa 71-78. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Usak. It was an exceptional evening for guard Mustafa Gucyetmez (188-80) who led the winners and scored 21 points. Sean Carter accounted for 14 points and 12 rebounds. American forward Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) came up with 16 points for Usak in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Final Genclik moved-up to fourteenth place. Usak at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. Final Genclik will play against Istanbulspor (#15) on the road in the next round. Usak will play against the league's second-placed Darussafaka (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Izmir BSB (0-11) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 11th consecutive match to ninth ranked Trabzonspor (6-5) 99-50 on Saturday evening. The best player for the winners was Jurica Zuza who scored 18 points and 8 rebounds. Gurur Baybora produced 9 points for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Trabzonspor moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Balikesir and Vestel. Izmir BSB lost their eleventh game in a row. Newly promoted team still closes the standings with 11 games lost. Trabzonspor will meet Pertevniyal (#10) in the next round. Izmir BSB will play against the league's leader Maliye Milli (#1) and will have a slim chance for a victory.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 11: Pertevniyal lost to Bandirma Kir. on the opponent's court 78-82. Darussafaka managed to outperform Akhisar Bld in a home game 87-80. Istanbulspor was rolled over Vestel on the road 86-61. Baskent Genclik was crushed by Yesilgiresun on its own court 54-74. Pi Koleji was smashed by Istanbul B.B. in a road game 93-72. Gelisim lost to Balikesir at home 63-72.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 23 points and 6 steals by Antabia Waller of Vestel.

The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 16-9. But Pertevniyal won second period 22-18. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Americans were the main players on the court. The best player for the winners was power forward Raymond Sykes (206-86, college: Clemson, agency: Three Eye Sports) who had a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds. Forward Gilbert Brown (198-87, college: Pittsburgh) chipped in 20 points and 4 assists. Bandirma Kir.'s coach Selcuk Ernak used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Guard Dewayne Reed (185-87, college: Auburn, agency: EM-PA) produced 21 points and 4 steals and forward Anthony Brown (203-86, college: Oklahoma St., agency: KMG Sports Management) added 13 points and 7 rebounds respectively for the guests.

Vestel - Istanbulspor 86-61

Not a big story in a game in Manisa where 15th ranked Istanbulspor (3-8) was rolled over by eighth ranked Vestel (6-5) 86-61 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Vestel.

American guard Charles Hinkle (195-88, college: American) produced 13 points and 6 rebounds and forward Azizcan Ozdemir (201-88, agency: 1x1 Sports) added 9 points and 8 rebounds respectively for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Vestel moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Trabzonspor and Balikesir. Loser Istanbulspor keeps the fifteenth position with eight games lost. They share it with Pi Koleji. Vestel will meet Pi Koleji (#16) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Istanbulspor will play against Final Genclik in Bursa and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Trabzonspor - Izmir BSB 99-50

Bottom-ranked Izmir BSB (0-11) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 11th consecutive match to ninth ranked Trabzonspor (6-5) 99-50 on Saturday evening. The game without a history.

Usak at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. Final Genclik will play against Istanbulspor (#15) on the road in the next round. Usak will play against the league's second-placed Darussafaka (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.

Gelisim - Balikesir 63-72

Everything could happen in Izmir at the game between two tied teams. Both seventh ranked Balikesir and 9th ranked Gelisim had identical 5-5 record. But Gelisim was not able to use a home court advantage and lost to the opponent from Balikesir 72-63 on Friday night. Gelisim trailed by 15 points after 3 quarters before a 26-20 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 63-72 at the end of the game. Balikesir dominated on the defensive end, holding Gelisim to just 7 points in second quarter. They outrebounded Gelisim 42-27 including a 32-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. The best player for the winners was American point guard Robert Lowery (188-87, college: Dayton) who scored 21 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals.

Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Newly promoted Balikesir maintains seventh place with 6-5 record, which they share with Trabzonspor and Vestel. Loser Gelisim dropped to the tenth position with six games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Balikesir will meet at home Istanbul B.B.
