TBL is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 15 rounds left. The round 15 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

The game between second ranked Fenerbahce Ulker (13-2) and 14th ranked Olin Edirne (3-12) in Istanbul on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. Fenerbahce Ulker outscored guests from Edirne 98-61. The game was mostly controlled by Fenerbahce Ulker. Olin Edirne managed to win fourth quarter 20-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Fenerbahce Ulker dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Olin Edirne's 24. 26 personal fouls committed by Olin Edirne helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for international Emir Preldzic (205-87, agency: Beo Basket) who led his team to a victory with 7 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Australian center David Andersen (212-80) contributed with 17 points for the winners. Forward Berkay Candan (204-93) answered with 11 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for Olin Edirne. 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 keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Anadolu Efes and Banvit BK. Olin Edirne lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Antalya. Fenerbahce Ulker is looking forward to face Erdemir (#8) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Olin Edirne will play against Gaziantep (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 15: Anadolu Efes beat Gaziantep on the road 92-82. Besiktas won against Mersin on its own court 83-75. Aliaga unfortunately lost to Banvit BK in Balikesir 79-94. Tofas recorded a loss to Erdemir at home 89-93. TED Kolejliler was crushed by Karsiyaka on the opponent's court 66-87. Bottom-ranked Hacettepe was beaten by Antalya in a home game 78-85. Galatasaray won against Turk Telekom on the road 76-70.
The most impressive performance of 15th round was 26 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists by Lionel Chalmers of Aliaga.


Gaziantep - Anadolu Efes 82-92

No shocking result in a game when third ranked Anadolu Efes (13-2) beat on the road 12th ranked Gaziantep (4-11) 92-82 on Monday.

Tofas - Erdemir 89-93

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 9th ranked Tofas (6-9) lost to tenth ranked Erdemir (6-9) in Bursa 89-93 on Saturday. 28 personal fouls committed by Tofas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.
