GAME REPORT


Turkey Wrap Up Best Record

Turkey improved to 5-1 by pulling past Slovenia in the fourth quarter en route to a 74-64 win.

As a result of the win, Turkey became the only team to emerge from the EuroBasket Women Qualifying Round with five victories.

Leading by six (59-53) midway through the fourth, Turkey pulled ahead with a 13-2 run to open up a 72-55 lead.

Birsel Vardarli scored seven of her 16 points during the critical spurt.

She made a lay-up and three-pointer in the beginning of the run and then capped it with a jumper at the 2:46 mark which put her side in clear command.

Slovenia would never get back to within single digits.

The contest was tight for the first 13 minutes of the game.

Turkey then closed the first half on a 13-0 run to open a 34-22 lead.

Slovenia chipped away at the deficit in the third quarter and got it to within six on a three-pointer from Markovic at the 6:43 mark in the fourth quarter before Turkey went on the game-clinching run to ice the game.

Maja Drozg finished with a game-high 20 points for Slovenia, which finished with a 2-4 record.

Vardarli and Nevriye Yilmaz each had 16 to lead Turkey.
