Post-Game Evaluation by Yakup Sekizkök...

Defeated by FC Barcelona team 77-82 in the 21st-week match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague, our assistant coach Yakup Sekizkök shared his thoughts at the post-game conference:

“Playing with Barcelona at home or in an away game is always tough. We came here to win. Our plan was to stop their strong bigs and find easy shots on the offense. We managed that in the first match. I believe we managed to do it this time as well, though unfortunately, we failed to score. We fought until the final moment and didn’t step back on toughness. We scored better rebounds than in the last match. We made critical mistakes in two positions while their offense time was about to be finished and they scored two three-pointers, Jokubaitis’s last layup was a critical point as well. We talked about these offenses before the match. Congratulations to Barcelona. We played a good match as the last Final Four finalists. We will play to win against them when we have the playoff or Final Four match against Barcelona.”
