Galatasara is standing in second place in the Turkish league. I don't know why, since 15-1 has more wins and fewer losses. (Every country has their own system.) Galatasaray should not be in any danger of falling out of second with their 82-63 win over visiting team Çankaya University.
The box score is here.
Galatasaray took a 10-7 lead after five minutes and expanded the lead to ten points, 25-15 after the end of ten minutes. In the second quarter, Galatasaray took a 9-0 run at the beginning to extend their lead to 34-15. By halftime, Galatasaray led 41-29.
There would be no threat from Çankaya University. In the third period, Galatasary extended their lead to 66-46 and held Çankaya University off for the rest of the game. The headline? "Galatasaray won without difficulty".
Megan Frazee led Çankaya University with 16 points and seven rebounds. Lyndra Weaver, the former Lyndra Littles, scored eighth points and nine rebounds for the visitors.
Sophia Young was Galatasaray's leading scorer with 17 points. Tamika Catchings added 14 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Yelena Leuchanka would only play 18 minutes but she would also break double digits in scoring:
