GAME REPORT


Türk Telekom Claim Top Spot

Turk Telekom guaranteed they finished as Group K winners in the EuroCup with a 92-80 win over Lokomotiv Rostov.

Rostov did threaten to cause their hosts an upset at times as Maurice Bailey put in a superb shift for the Russians with 24 points.

He made a jump shot three minutes in to edge his side into a 9-7 lead and then extended that to 19-12 with another jump shot and a lay-up.

Erwin Dudley then made a pair free throws and a jump shot to reduce the deficit to 20-21 in Rostov's favour by the end of the first period and after taking the lead early in the second, the Ankara-based side never looked back.

German forward Jan-Hendrik Jagla scored 11 points in the second quarter, scoring one from beyond the arc and making all four of his free throws as Turk Telekom opened up a 48-38 half-time lead.

Half-way through the third quarter, Dudley made a tap-in to take a 13 point lead at 61-48, although the visitors rallied and the score was a surmountable 68-62 going into the final 10 minutes.

Bailey was certainly not giving up the fight and sank two three-pointers in the opening 90 seconds of the period, while Sergei Vorotnikov's shot from the arc pulled the scores to within three points with five minutes to go.

But Aco Petrovic's men made only five points in the closing spell, while perfect shooting on six free throws helped their opponents pour in 14 points to secure the win.
