There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Fenerbahce Ulker as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Fenerbahce Ulker defeated 8th ranked Erdemir in Istanbul 82-77. The hosts trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 20-13 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Fenerbahce Ulker made 17-of-18 free shots (94.4 percent) during the game. Bosnian-Croatian Bojan Bogdanovic (203-89) fired 26 points for the winners. Central African swingman Romain Sato (194-81, college: Xavier) chipped in 10 points and 6 rebounds. Slovenian forward Jure Balazic (204-80) produced 24 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. Erdemir's coach Ozhan Civgin rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Banvit BK. Erdemir at the other side keeps the eighth place with ten games lost. They share the position with Tofas and Aliaga. Erdemir will play next round against Gaziantep trying to get back on the winning streak. Fenerbahce Ulker will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked TED Kolejliler in Ankara.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Balikesir. Third ranked Banvit BK faced their biggest opponent Anadolu Efes. Host Banvit BK (14-2) defeated guests from Istanbul (13-3) 82-76. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Anadolu Efes. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian center Vladimir Stimac (211-87, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds. Sammy Mejia contributed with 20 points for the winners. American point guard Jordan Farmar (188-86, college: UCLA) replied with 14 points, 9 assists and 4 steals for Anadolu Efes. Banvit BK have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Fener.Ulker. Anadolu Efes at the other side dropped to the third place with three games lost. They share the position with Karsiyaka and Galatasaray. Banvit BK will play against bottom-ranked Olin Edirne (#16) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Anadolu Efes will play against Hacettepe (#15) in Ankara and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Hacettepe managed to get a third victory on Sunday night. This time they won against ninth-ranked Aliaga in Ankara 63-56. Worth to mention a great performance of Ricardo Marsh who helped to win the game recording 16 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side Marcus Arnold responded with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Hacettepe (3-13) moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Antalya and Olin Edirne. Loser Aliaga dropped to the eighth position with ten games lost. They share it with Tofas and Erdemir. Hacettepe will meet higher ranked Anadolu Efes (#5) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Aliaga will play against Galatasaray having rather not much hope for a victory.
A very interesting game took place in Gaziantep. It ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 14th ranked Olin Edirne (3-13) to twelfth ranked Gaziantep (5-11) 85-82 on Sunday evening. The winners were led by Andre Collins who scored that evening 18 points and 9 assists (made all of his eight free throws). Gaziantep moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Mersin. Olin Edirne lost seventh consecutive game. They dropped to the bottom position with 13 games lost. Gaziantep's next round opponent will be higher ranked Erdemir (#8) on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Olin Edirne will play against the league's second-placed Banvit BK (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Ankara. Local Turk Telekom (4-12) was outscored by sixth ranked Besiktas (11-5) 85-59 on Monday night. Patrick Christopher fired 18 points and 7 rebounds 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. Besiktas have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 11-5 record. Turk Telekom lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth place with 12 games lost. Besiktas will face higher ranked Karsiyaka (#4) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Turk Telekom will play against Antalya (#14) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 16 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Karsiyaka defeated Mersin in a road game 84-78. Tofas was beaten by TED Kolejliler at home 80-93. Antalya was destroyed by Galatasaray on the opponent's court 85-65.
The best stats of 16th round was 20 points and 10 rebounds by Bobby Dixon of Karsiyaka.

The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Besiktas have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 11-5 record. Turk Telekom lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth place with 12 games lost. Besiktas will face higher ranked Karsiyaka (#4) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

Olin Edirne was ahead by 3 points after three quarters before a 29-23 charge of Gaziantep, which allowed them to win the game. They made 26-of-32 charity shots (81.3 percent) during the game. 26 personal fouls committed by Olin Edirne helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The winners were led by American point guard Andre Collins (183-82, college: Loyola, MD) who scored that evening 18 points and 9 assists (made all of his eight free throws) and the other American import guard Isaiah Swann (188-85, college: Florida St.) supported him with 24 points. Even 21 points by Bulgarian Filip Videnov (196-80, college: W.Kentucky, agency: Alti Sport) did not help to save the game for Olin Edirne. Belarusian center Artsiom Parakhouski (210-87, college: Radford) added 10 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Four Gaziantep and five Olin Edirne players scored in double figures. Gaziantep moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Mersin. Olin Edirne lost seventh consecutive game. They dropped to the bottom position with 13 games lost. Gaziantep's next round opponent will be higher ranked Erdemir (#8) on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Olin Edirne will play against the league's second-placed Banvit BK (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
