Besiktas left no doubt about their participation in this season's Eurocup by rolling to a decisive second-leg victory over WBC Raiffeisen Wels in Turkey.
The Austrian club had won the first leg last week, 74-69, but Burak Biyiktay's team prevailed in Tuesday night's game 100-81 for a 169-155 triumph on aggregate.
WBC Wels Raiffeisen enjoyed a dream start in their European adventure on Tuesday night with a 74-69 home triumph over Besiktas.
Now the aim of the reigning Austrian champions is to finish the Turks off when the second leg of the Eurocup Qualifying Round tie is played next week in Istanbul.
WBC Raiffeisen Wels are a team on the rise and Jason Conley is as good as advertised.
That much is clear after the Austrian team's 74-69 triumph over Besiktas on Tuesday night in the first leg of their Eurocup Qualifying Round tie.
