Turkey: Ulker Beat Fener

19 December 2005

Fenerbahce will be anxious to return to the court this week when they travel to Ukraine to face BC Kyiv after being hammered 89-68 by Ulkerspor at the weekend.

Jarod Stevenson had 17 points and Cory Violette 15 but Fener, after leading 24-23 at the end of the first quarter, were throttled 89-68.

Ibrahim Kutluay and Marcus Haislip each scored 20 points for Ulker, who took a 45-40 advantage to the changing rooms and extended that to 67-53 by the end of the third.

Ulker kept the shackles on point guard Damir Mrsic, who was limited to 10 points on three of eight shooting, although he had three makes from seven attempts from behind the arc.

The loss has dropped Fener to six wins and four defeats in the TBL.

Fener would like nothing more than to beat BC Kyiv as the Ukrainian team beat them 88-72 in last season's FIBA Europe League semi-final round.
