EuroCup quarter-finalists Turk Telekom lead the Turkish BEKO Ligi after an 83-66 win at Beykoz.
The leaders improved their record to 22-2 with a triumph in a game they dominated, leading 64-34 at the end of the third quarter before easing up.
Virtus Bologna survived a tense finish to become the first team to book their place in the semi-finals of the EuroCup with a 59-54 victory over Turk Telekom on Thursday night.
Having won game one of the series 95-87 on Tuesday, Virtus came from behind in the final quarter to go through without the need of a third game. Virtus had led by as many as nine points in the second quarter but quickly squandered the advantage they had built as Turk Telekom kept it close the rest of the way.
Virtus Bologna resembled a sinking ship on Sunday after suffering a third successive defeat in Lega A but they may have just turned their season around with a terrific come-from-behind victory at Turk Telekom in the EuroCup two days later.
Zare Markovski's men trailed by as many as 13 points in the first half with Erwin Dudley flashing his all-star credentials but the Italian team battled and ultimately prevailed 95-87 in the opening game of the quarter-final tie.
Jan-Hendrik Jagla poured in 19 points as Turk Telekom returned to the top of the Turkish standings with an 88-65 win over Alpella.
Jagla and Co took command in the first quarter with a 29-18 lead and extended that to 47-34 by half-time en route to a comfortable victory.
