The game in Aliaga was quite interesting. Sixth ranked Besiktas (6-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Aliaga (4-6). Besiktas managed to secure a 4-point victory 76-72 on Sunday. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 22-12. But Aliaga won second period 23-21. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was dominated by American players. Guard Patrick Christopher (196-88, college: California, agency: 1x1 Sports) fired 21 points and 7 rebounds (made all of his ten free throws !!!) for the winners. Guard Curtis Jerrells (185-87, college: Baylor) chipped in 15 points. Center Torin Francis (210-83, college: Notre Dame) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds for lost side. Aliaga's coach Burak Biyiktay rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 6-4 record. Aliaga at the other side keeps the eighth place with six games lost. They share the position with Tofas and Erdemir. Besiktas are looking forward to face higher ranked Anadolu Efes (#3) in Istanbul in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Aliaga will play on the road against Karsiyaka (#4) and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Istanbul. Local Anadolu Efes (8-2) outscored 11th ranked Mersin (3-7) 104-71. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Mersin. Worth to mention a great performance of Slovenian Sasha Vujacic (201-84) who helped to win the game recording 33 points (!!!) and 4 assists (on 13-of-15 shooting from the field). Sinan Guler contributed with 6 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Naturalized American forward Ali Karadeniz (203-80, college: Arizona) replied with 15 points and 8 rebounds for Mersin. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Anadolu Efes moved-up to third place, which they share with Karsiyaka and Banvit BK. Mersin at the other side keeps the eleventh position with seven games lost. They share it with Turk Telekom and Olin Edirne. Anadolu Efes will play against Besiktas (#6) in Istanbul in the next round. Mersin will play on the road against Olin Edirne (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 10 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Fener.Ulker crushed Hacettepe in Istanbul 92-59. Banvit BK beat Gaziantep at home 95-81. TED Kolejliler won against Olin Edirne on the opponent's court 76-70. Galatasaray managed to outperform Tofas in a home game 71-61. Erdemir managed to beat Turk Telekom on the road 103-94. Antalya was defeated by Karsiyaka on its own court 74-88.



Anadolu Efes - Mersin 104-71

The game with biggest result difference took place in Istanbul. Local Anadolu Efes (8-2) outscored 11th ranked Mersin (3-7) 104-71. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Mersin. The game without a history. Anadolu Efes led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to Mersin's 34. Anadolu Efes forced 21 Mersin turnovers. It was a great shooting night for Anadolu Efes especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 64.3 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Mersin's players. Worth to mention a great performance of Slovenian Sasha Vujacic (201-84) who helped to win the game recording 33 points (!!!) and 4 assists (on 13-of-15 shooting from the field). International Sinan Guler (192-83, college: Carroll, MT, agency: 1x1 Sports) contributed with 6 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Naturalized American forward Ali Karadeniz (203-80, college: Arizona) replied with 15 points and 8 rebounds and American guard J.P. Prince (201-87, college: Tennessee) added 12 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in the effort for Mersin. Four Mersin players scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Anadolu Efes moved-up to third place, which they share with Karsiyaka and Banvit BK. Mersin at the other side keeps the eleventh position with seven games lost. They share it with Turk Telekom and Olin Edirne. Anadolu Efes will play against Besiktas (#6) in Istanbul in the next round.

Four Aliaga players scored in double figures. Aliaga's coach Burak Biyiktay rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 6-4 record.

Hacettepe - Fener.Ulker 59-92

There was no surprise in Ankara where 15th ranked Hacettepe (2-8) was crushed by second ranked Fenerbahce Ulker (9-1) 92-59. The game without a history. Fenerbahce Ulker led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot the lights out from three nailing 12 long-distance shots on high 52.2 percentage. Hacettepe was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a very good performance for American-FYR Macedonian point guard Bo McCalebb (178-85, college: New Orleans) who helped to win the game recording 19 points. Central African swingman Romain Sato (194-81, college: Xavier) contributed with 12 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Five Fenerbahce Ulker players scored in double figures. American forward Michael Glover (200-87, college: Iona) replied with 20 points and 7 rebounds and Muhammed Baygul (191-92) added 15 points in the effort for Hacettepe. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Fenerbahce Ulker have an impressive five-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Galatasaray. Hacettepe lost sixth consecutive game. They dropped to the bottom place with eight games lost. They share the position with Antalya and Gaziantep. Fenerbahce Ulker will play against league's second-placed Galatasaray in Istanbul in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Hacettepe will play on the road against Gaziantep (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Banvit BK - Gaziantep 95-81

No shocking result in a game in Balikesir where fifth ranked Banvit BK (8-2) defeated 14th ranked Gaziantep (2-8) 95-81. Banvit BK made 21-of-26 charity shots (80.8 percent) during the game. Banvit BK outrebounded Gaziantep 36-25 including 27 on the defensive glass. Gaziantep was plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a very good performance for American-Azerbaijani center Charles Davis (205-84, college: Alabama) who helped to win the game recording 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Serbian center Vladimir Stimac (211-87, agency: Interperformances) contributed with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American guard Isaiah Swann (188-85, college: Florida St.) replied with 22 points and his fellow American import point guard Andre Collins (183-82, college: Loyola, MD) added 16 points in the effort for Gaziantep. Five Banvit BK and four Gaziantep players scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Banvit BK moved-up to third place, which they share with Anadolu Efes and Karsiyaka. Newly promoted Gaziantep keeps the fourteenth position with eight games lost. They share it with Antalya and Hacettepe. Banvit BK will play against Turk Telekom (#11) in Ankara in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

Olin Edirne - TED Kolejliler 70-76

Rather expected game when 10th ranked Olin Edirne (3-7) was defeated at home by seventh ranked TED Kolejliler (5-5) 76-70. Olin Edirne was ahead by 2 points at the halftime before a 36-28 second half run of TED Kolejliler. It was a very good performance for Serbian center Jovo Stanojevic (208-77, agency: Beo Basket) who helped to win the game recording 26 points and 8 rebounds. New Zealand guard Kirk Penney (196-80, college: Wisconsin, agency: Duran International) contributed with 19 points and 8 assists for the winners.

Four Olin Edirne players scored in double figures. Newly promoted TED Kolejliler maintains seventh position with 5-5 record. Olin Edirne at the other side dropped to the eleventh place with seven games lost. They share the position with Turk Telekom and Mersin.
