The biggest surprise of round 27 was guest Trabzonspor's (18-9) road victory over 4th placed Maliye Milli (17-10) 87-84 on Saturday evening. The guests trailed by 6 points after three quarters before their 24-15 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Trabzonspor made 19-of-25 free shots (76.0 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was American point guard Khalid El-Amin (178-79, college: Connecticut) who scored 24 points and 9 assists. point guard Yunus Akcay (-89) chipped in 16 points. At the other side the best for losing team was American guard Derek Williams (185-85, college: SMU) who recorded 21 points and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Trabzonspor have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Selcuk Univ. Maliye Milli lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the fifth position with ten games lost. They share it with Darussafaka. Trabzonspor is looking forward to face bottom-ranked Izmir BSB (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Maliye Milli will play against Selcuk Universitesi (#3) in Konya and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Yesilgiresun (19-8) against sixth ranked Darussafaka (17-10) on Sunday night. Visiting Yesilgiresun was defeated by Darussafaka in Istanbul 84-73. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Yesilgiresun.
