Turkey went into the warm-ups for EuroBasket Women 2009 thinking they could climb to the European podium for the first time, but a rash of injuries before the tournament robbed head coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu of a number of key players.


Still, a young Turkey team came within a victory in either of their last two games of reaching the Quarter-Finals in Riga. Instead, the Turks left Latvia finishing outside of the quarters for the second straight tournament.
