GAME REPORT


Korkmaz Leads Turkey To Victory

8. Egehan Arna (Turkey)
Egehan Arna and Turkeylocked down Sweden for a comfortable win

Furkan Korkmaz scored 25 points as Turkey improved to 2-0 in Group B of the U16 European Championship Men with a comfortable victory over Sweden.

Turkey took control of the game early in the first quarter and never relinquished it as they dominated the game at both ends of the court.

Craig Lecesne scored 17 points to lead Sweden but after falling 10-3 behind early on they showed only the briefest flash of a challenge to Turkey.

That came in the second quarter with a 9-2 burst that saw them close to within 23-22 on Lecesne's three-pointer with 6:18 left in the half.

But Turkey crushed that rebellion with a 14-4 burst that put them 37-26 up on Ercan Bayrak's jumper.

They led 39-28 at the break and then dominated the third period to end the contest.

Korkmaz was the clear star of the show, following a three-pointer with a dunk that made it 45-32 at the start of a 16-0 run that had them 56-32 up on Egehan Arna's jumper.

The only remaining surprise was a subdued fourth quarter as the benches emptied and the teams combined for a mere 13 points.

Korkmaz was the only man in double figures for Turkey, with Omer Yurtseven on nine points and Baris Ulker eight.

Tobias Sjoberg had 11 points and 13 rebounds for Sweden.
