GAME REPORT

Taurasi Sparks Galatasaray To First Win

13. Diana Taurasi (Galatasaray)
Diana Taurasi is back in Europe and -in case there were any doubts- she made it clear right from the start that she means business

Galatasaray broke open a close game midway through the fourth quarter and beat VICI Aistes in the EuroLeague Women opener for both sides on Thursday evening.

New Gala star Diana Taurasi had 31 points, including a perfect seven-of-seven effort from long range, and Alba Torrens added 18 as the Turkish giants won 83-66 in Istanbul.

The visitors from Kaunas, Lithuania, were only down 64-60 with 7:04 to go after a Courtney Pilypaitis three-pointer.

Amanda Kemezys' jump shot then closed the gap to 64-62.

After two Kemezys free-throws left the visitors behind 67-64 with 5:54 to play, Gala took over.

Tina Charles hit a jump shot and Torrens added a lay-up before Taurasi buried one of her shots from long range.

The three baskets came at the start of a 16-0 run for Galatasaray which left them with an 83-64 lead just 1:39 from the end.

Taurasi also had eight rebounds and six assists in the game.

Turkey international guard Isil Alben finished with a game-high eight steals for Gala.

Vita Kuktiene, Vici Aistes' 31-year-old forward, led the team with 18 points and Pilypaitis weighed in with 17.

Sandra Linkeviciene, the Lithuania national team captain who has returned home to play for Vici Aistes, had a game-high 10 rebounds and four assists to go with her eight points.

Vici Aistes stayed in the game for 35 minutes because of their rebounding.

They won the battle of the boards, 49-31.

Like so many other teams have discovered over the years, though, when Taurasi is turning on all cylinders, there not much any defense can do to stop her.

COACH QUOTES

13.10.2011
Quotes Galatasaray vs. VICI Aistes
Vici Aistes Head Coach Mantas Sernius:
"First of all I congratulate the Galatasaray coach, good game. We know the team, we prepared but we didn't do what we want. We didn't stop Diana, she's a big star, good player, we let her score in every quarter. That was the biggest difference between the teams." 

Vici Aistes center Amanda Kemezys:
"We were in the game for three quarters but we lost it at the end. We wanted to stop them but they're much better than us." 

Galatasaray Medical Park point guard Isil Alben:
"They're a good team and also we got some problems so we couldn't play our best game. We wanted the game. I don't think it's important to score or who scored. We played together in defense and offense. Taurasi, Charles and Torrens, they are really great players. Tina just came in the morning and I don't think she played her best. Taurasi had big shots."

Galatasaray Medical Park Head Coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu:
"First of all I want to congratulate Vici Aistes. We respect them, they lost a lot of players from last season. We know them very well because they came early to Turkey. They're a good team with good players. Especially in the first half we gave so much offensive rebounds because we tried switching and defense, so there were a lot of position plays and mismatches that we couldn't box out and they got offensive rebounds. In the second half I think we played better. We are a new team, building chemistry. Today we won. Diana, of course everyone knows, is a great player not only in scoring, she can also play good defense, she's smart. Our point guard played good, she got 8 steals. Towards the end of the game we used Tina Charles inside, she scored and assisted."

COACH QUOTES

13.10.2011
Quotes Galatasaray vs. VICI Aistes
Vici Aistes Head Coach Mantas Sernius:
"First of all I congratulate the Galatasaray coach, good game. We know the team, we prepared but we didn't do what we want. We didn't stop Diana, she's a big star, good player, we let her score in every quarter. That was the biggest difference between the teams." 

Vici Aistes center Amanda Kemezys:
"We were in the game for three quarters but we lost it at the end. We wanted to stop them but they're much better than us." 

Galatasaray Medical Park point guard Isil Alben:
"They're a good team and also we got some problems so we couldn't play our best game. We wanted the game. I don't think it's important to score or who scored. We played together in defense and offense. Taurasi, Charles and Torrens, they are really great players. Tina just came in the morning and I don't think she played her best. Taurasi had big shots."

Galatasaray Medical Park Head Coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu:
"First of all I want to congratulate Vici Aistes. We respect them, they lost a lot of players from last season. We know them very well because they came early to Turkey. They're a good team with good players. Especially in the first half we gave so much offensive rebounds because we tried switching and defense, so there were a lot of position plays and mismatches that we couldn't box out and they got offensive rebounds. In the second half I think we played better. We are a new team, building chemistry. Today we won. Diana, of course everyone knows, is a great player not only in scoring, she can also play good defense, she's smart. Our point guard played good, she got 8 steals. Towards the end of the game we used Tina Charles inside, she scored and assisted."
