This season has been remarkable for Fenerbahce in Europe and the Turkish top flight.
But it would have been even better had the basketball gods smiled on them the night of February 28, when Zafer Kalaycioglu's team was engaged in a classic struggle against Ros Casares with a place at the EuroLeague Women Final Four at stake.
Another impressive display from DeLisha Milton saw Ros Casares to a 71-53 victory over Fenerbahce as they levelled their EuroLeague Women quarter-final play-off series at 1-1.
Fenerbahce had sneaked Game One 69-67 on Tuesday, but the Spanish team hit back on Friday with a pair of three-pointers from Milton helping Ros Casares establish a 29-12 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce underlined their championship credentials in the EuroLeague women by beating Spanish juggernauts Ros Casares in the opening game of the best-of-three quarter-final.
Ros, winners of the Copa de la Reina already and leaders in Spain's Liga Femenina, were among the clubs thought to have a chance of going all the way in Europe but they lost 69-67 in Turkey and must now win consecutive games to reach the Final Four.
