Turkish Basketball League (TBL) side Beşiktaş Milangaz coach Ergin Ataman has said his team continues to perform exceptionally well, as Beşiktaş stands poised to win its third cup of the season.
Beşiktaş beat defending champion Fenerbahçe Ülker 77-74 on the road on Wednesday to advance to the semis of the TBL championship playoffs. Beşiktaş has already won two cups this season: the Spor Toto Turkish Cup and FIBA Eurochallenge Cup. “The Beşiktaş family’s historic season still continues. Everybody wants the third cup, we are focused on that,” Ataman said, adding: “We play well and cleverly. That was the only way to defeat Fenerbahçe, anyway.” Beşiktaş will meet Galatasaray Medical Park in the semi-final game. The other pair in the semis is Banvit and Anadolu Efes.
