GAME REPORT


Tarsus Agonisingly Edged Out By Bourges

7. Endene Miyem (Bourges Basket)
Bourges' Endene Miyem sealed the final result from the free throw line

Tarsus Belediye came within a whisker of claiming a first ever EuroLeague Women success but were agonisingly squeezed out 65-61 by Bourges in a dramatic Group A encounter.

With both teams well matched and preferring to put the ball in the hands of their respective frontcourt players, it was a classic war of attrition in the paint which Bourges eventually shaded as Tarsus reflected on a glorious opportunity to make history slipping away.

Led by the outstanding Melisa Can who continues to be the one Tarsus player who has truly excelled since the start of the season, they kept pace with Bourges throughout the game, even getting their noses in font 34-33 at the break.

The French visitors then made a bid to move clear and when young center Christelle Diallo made a basket inside, they found themselves 47-41 in front.

But, Tarsus showed great resilience and fought their way back to set up a tense and exciting finale as Amaya Valdemoro got them to within a point at 61-62 with 90 seconds remaning.

However, foul trouble proved costly as Can fouled out having contributed a super 15 points and 12 rebounds.

Bourges kept their composure from the free-throw line to seal a crucial road win with Frida Eldebrink sinking three priceless triples on her way to 18 points.

COACH AND PLAYER QUOTES


Quotes Tarsus vs. Bourges

Bourges Basket head coach Valerie Garnier
"
We had a big problem in offensive rebounds against Tarsus. At the end of the game we took offensive rebounds and we won the game. It was a really important first game for them in their home court. Tarsus had a too many shooters in their team and defensively we really did a good job. And at the and we won the game. During the game we tried to stay colm and make he shots at the end. It was really important to win this game and we succeeded."

Bourges Basket player Zoi Dimitrako
"We dodn't know much about this team before the game but we are better than them. Defensively we did what the coach said we were more consistant and we won the game."

Tarsus Bld. Spor headcoach Erdal Yeğin
"
We are really upset to lose this game. We are an experienced team. Some periods of the games especially in the breaking part of the game. We couldnt play well. As a result Bourges is a good team and it has been in EuroLeague for long years. They have experienced players. Anyways, we should win this game in front of our fans in our home court. But unfortunately we lost. And from now on we look ahead for the next games in our group."

Tarsus Bld. Spor player Deniz Çolakoğlu
"We are really upset to lose in our home court. I think we started the game very good in the beginning in the breaking part of the game we couldn't play very well. Its our first year in the EuroLeague and to play good against a team like Bourges was a good experience for our team. We have an other games a head of us in our group. Congratulations to Bourges."
