Dogus Balbay - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Anadolu Efes Istanbul (Turkey-TBL)
Career: Fenerbahce (Turkey-TBL, 2004-2006); Brewster Academy (USA-High School, 2006-07); University of Texas (USA-NCAA, 2007-11); Anadolu Efes Istanbul (Turkey-TBL, 2011-13)

Balbay had a strong youth national team career for Turkey and is looking to finally make his mark with the senior team. After nearly making the squad for EuroBasket 2011, the point guard played a big role in Turkey's qualifying for EuroBasket 2013, averaging 7.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 steals while shooting 55% from the field in four qualifiers during the 2012 summer. Balbay also showed he can make the jump from U.S. collegiate basketball to European elite competition. He served as a solid reserve playmaker for Euroleague side Anadolu Efes Istanbul during the 2012-13 season. Balbay hopes to use that experience and translate it into a bigger role in Turkey's team in Slovenia.
