Ataman: “All Of Our Players Played With Balanced Minutes…”

Defeating Beşiktaş Icrypex 84-80 in the 20th-week match of ING Basketball Super League, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts post-game:

"Firstly, congratulations to Beşiktaş youth. They’re both fighting well and playing good basketball. Alperen, Şeyhmus, and Furkan never step back, I like to congratulate them on their progress. We shouldn’t forget and thank Bandırma Basketball Club as well. They’ve raised these young players, and Beşiktaş Icrypex picked up where Bandırma Basketball left. They’ve undertaken a special mission for Turkish basketball. For us, after an important victory such as Barcelona, it was difficult to concentrate on this match. We’ve played with a low tempo in the first quarter but Simon contributed well especially within the second half. We’ve overcome our scoring problem with Simon’s points. We’ve toughened our defense with two bigs towards the end of the third quarter and raised the score difference. All of our players played with balanced minutes. I congratulate my players, we continue towards our goal in the Basketball Super League with 20 matches and 20 victories.”
