Skyliners, Antalya Basket All Square After Opener

04.11.2008

Antalya Basket hit back from an awful third-quarter stretch to finish level at 60-60 with Deutsch Bank Skyliners in Tuesday's first leg of their EuroChallenge Qualifying Round 2 tie.

Victor King had 21 points for Antalya, who watched Pascal Roller cap a 13-0 surge with a three-pointer to give the Frankfurt side a 43-30 advantage with 2:04 remaining in the third quarter.

The visitors from Turkey then reeled off 17 consecutive points of their own in a run bridging the third and fourth quarters for a 47-43 lead.

That scoring explosion was capped by a King lay-up.

The contest remained tight the rest of the way, leaving all to play for when the second leg is played on November 11.

Titus Ivory led the German club with 17 points and six rebounds. Roller was three of five from behind the arc and scored 12 on the night.
