Yugoslavia European Champion 2001 !
09.09.2001 -
In the final of EuroBasket 2001, Turkey was the side who started the game well. The Hidayet Turkoglu-Predrag Stojakovic match-up (two teammates from the NBA) proved to benefit no side as both players struggled from the field in the first quarter. 3:27 to go in the quarter, Turkey had a 7-0 run thanks to Besok and Kutluay who had scored the team's first 16 points. Ibrahim Kutluay scored 13 in the quarter. When Turkey took their time-out 01:36, Yugoslavia could make only 1 field goal in their last 7 possessions. Coach Pesic substituted Obradovic for Jaric which suited Yugoslavia in the sense that Obradovic, a real point guard, organized the offense. The quarter ended with a 22-15 Turkey lead.
