Turning Point: Portugal never stood a chance after going scoreless for the first six-and-a-half minutes. Selale Kepenc nailed back-to-back three-pointers to put her squad 15 points clear, and the lead remained in double digits for the rest of the match.
Game Heroes: Kepenc had a game-high 22 points on 14 shots, and Inci Güclü added a double-double with 10 rebounds and 15 points on 70% shooting from the field. Beatriz Jordao battled through an injury sustained in the match against Russia to lead Portugal with 12 points.
Stats Don't Lie: Portugal struggled with their offence throughout, and they finished with only 15 made field goals on 28% shooting. Güclü's presence helped Turkey to a large advantage on the boards, and Portugal simply couldn't generate any easy scores against the Turkish defence.
The Bottom Line: Portugal head to the classification games in the first stage of trying to preserve the Division A status they fought so hard to earn in 2013. Turkey join Greece and Russia in progressing to the second round, where they will face Spain, Hungary and Croatia.
