Turkey Suffer More Misery

Another major tournament has come and gone for Turkey. The memory of their runners-up finish at the European Championships two years ago is fading fast.

Turkey, one of the continent's biggest basketball countries, also crashed out of the World Championships last summer in Indianapolis, finishing ninth, and in this year's Eurobasket in Sweden failed to even reach the quarter-finals.
