Mersin improved its record for the year to 16-1 with an 87-80 win on the road against Beşiktaş. Beşiktaş falls to 8-10 on the year.
The box score is here.
It was an evenly matched 24-24 first quarter...and second quarter as well. Beşiktaş led 46-44 at halftime. It looks, however, as if Mersin was able to slowly edge ahead and secure a second half victory. (Really, there wasn't much of a writeup on the Turkish League web site, and the league is generally good at that.)
Shavonte Zellous scored 25 points and had six rebounds for Beşiktaş. Kelly Santos added 15 points and seven rebounds and Nykesha Sales scored 12 points and six rebounds.
Three players broke double-digits for Mersin. Barbara Turner scored 14 points, six rebounds and four assists and Korel Engin added 13 points and seven rebounds.
The high scorer of the game? Ivory Latta.
