Polat Kaya
The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season.

Eighth-ranked Samsun (15-13) gave a tough game to third ranked Socar Petkim (23-6) on Wednesday. The visitors from Petkim managed to secure only two-point victory 70-68. However their fans expected much easier game. Socar Petkim made 20-of-24 free shots (83.3 percent) during the game. 27 personal fouls committed by Samsun helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Swingman Polat Kaya (197-86) stepped up and scored 24 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) for the winners and Bosnian power forward Kenan Bajramovic (206-81) chipped in 9 points and 10 rebounds. Socar Petkim's coach Burak Goren used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American forward Mikael Hopkins (206, college: Georgetown) responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds. Socar Petkim have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain third place with 23-6 record behind leader Eskisehir Basket. Newly promoted Samsun dropped to the ninth position with 13 games lost. Socar Petkim are looking forward to face Bandirma Kir. (#10) in Balikesir in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Samsun will play on the road against Duzce Belediye and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
TBL top team - Eskisehir Basket (24-5) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed eighteenth ranked Muglaorman (4-25) 124-88. American swingman Sean Marshall (198-85, college: Boston Coll.) nailed 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side and Bugrahan Tuncer accounted for 13 points and 13 assists. Omer Gogus (-89) came up with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds for Muglaorman in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Eskisehir Basket maintains first place with 24-5 record. Muglaorman lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 25 lost games. Eskisehir Basket will play against Gelisim (#11) in Izmir in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Muglaorman will play on the road against Yalova Bld (#13) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Istanbul was also quite interesting. Second ranked Sakarya BSB (24-6) played at the court of 6th ranked Istanbulspor (18-11). Sakarya BSB defeated Istanbulspor 78-68 on Wednesday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Istanbulspor. The best player for the winners was Hakan Yapar who scored 18 points and 6 rebounds. Brandon Brown produced a double-double by scoring 19 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists for the hosts. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Sakarya BSB have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain second place with 24-6 record having just one point less than leader Eskisehir Basket. Newly promoted Istanbulspor dropped to the seventh position with 11 games lost. Sakarya BSB will meet at home Final Genclik (#17) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Istanbulspor will play against Akhisar Bld (#12) and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Izmir. It ended with only two-point home defeat of 11th ranked Gelisim (12-18) to fourteenth ranked Duzce Belediye (10-19) 75-73 on Wednesday evening. Mehmet Gorkem orchestrated the victory by scoring 26 points and 7 rebounds. Gelisim's coach Arda Vekiloglu rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Duzce Belediye moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Yalova Bld. Gelisim at the other side keeps the eleventh position with 18 games lost. Duzce Belediye's next round opponent will be higher ranked Samsun (#9) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
An interesting game took place in Balikesir where higher ranked Bandirma Kir. (13-16) was upset on its own court by seventeenth ranked Mamak DSI (7-22) 92-88 on Wednesday. Reginald Holmes stepped up and scored 27 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Bandirma Kir.'s coach Menderes Gumusdal tried various players' combinations and tested in total twelve players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Mamak DSI moved-up to sixteenth place. Bandirma Kir. lost third consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 16 games lost. Mamak DSI will face higher ranked Afyon Bld (#5) in Afyonkarahisar in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 29: Pertevniyal lost to Bursaspor on the opponent's court 67-84. Turk Telekom managed to outperform Final Genclik in a home game 111-99. Yalova Bld was rolled over Acibadem on the road 84-61. Afyon defeated Akhisar Bld on its own court 74-67.
