Besiktas forced 26 Samsun turnovers. Strangely Samsun outrebounded Besiktas 45-28 including a 32-21 advantage in defensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of Montenegrin forward Milka Bjelica (193-81, agency: LBM Management) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points and 12 rebounds and American point guard Armintie Price (175-85, college: Mississippi, agency: LBM Management) who added 14 points, 5 assists and 7 steals during the contest.

Besiktas have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with defeated Samsun. Besiktas will meet at home league's second-placed Kayseri in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Samsun will play against Botas (#9) in Adana and hope to secure a win.
