TR have beaten Greece 76 to 65. Ersan was superb, referee was Jungebrant and guess what? He was outrageous.

Our guys played very well this evening (vs Greece) It was very joyful to watch Ersan and Omer´s spectecular moves.

I am hopeful for final four...

Greece such a row team, in defence palyers can do anything, people call it good defence and professionalism. Also they have a good lobby so the latest hearsays they are now pressuring FIBA to appoint same referee in Puerto Rico match, Carl Jungebrand. 

si++ by the way what do you think about organization? Imo it is a fiasco so far started with opening ceremony, I was thinking if this organization taking place in Greece, certainly sports with politics do not go well, then national anthems of some teams could not be played, and then problems on score boards lately...

I didn´t watch the opening ceremony, and I couldn´t see national anthems not played bit but I saw the problem on score board during USA-Brasil game. Were there other games with scoreboard problems? Not so perfect so far as it sounds from your description.

 

Edit: There is some talk here. They think the opening ceromony was the best ever so far.

After the game, they said that it was the first win in last 30 years. Incredible, we couldn´t beat Greece in last 30 years until this game?

But finishing group in the first place may turn out to be a bad luck as we may match with Serbia in the next round.

Yes, in USA-Brasil match there was scoreboard problem and also scores on scoreboard sometimes written wrong, corrected during the match. Puerto Rico national anthem could not be played as far as i remember. By the way rte disturbed by cheerleaders, when he was watching matches, no cheerleaders, Ramazan malumWink

Edit: There is some talk here. They think the opening ceromony was the best ever so far.

Did you read the comments below? Anyway I really wonder how it was the best ever since it was the first time in World Basketball Championships. Has the one who wrote this ever watched an opening ceremony in his life? It was great anyhow, never seen before that was right, boys wearing flip flops circumambulating a huge horse reconstructed from a donkey maybe, Tülin Şahin aka "çakma Cindy" who hardly speaks Turkish was the presenter, Müslüm baba was one of the star.  What is the relevance of Grek dances, singers or Troya since we have lots of beautiful traditional dances and good singers? Simply I thought it was not presenting Turkish culture but something lame more similar to Grek, that is why I criticized.

Right, one win will be enough. But according to latest results highly possible we will play with Canada or New Zealand in next round, we may match with Brazil or Australia in quarter final, and in semifinal Serbia or France, not that bad i guess...

Greeks do it again and lose to Russia to avoid matching up with Spain in the next round. Turkish coach Bogdan Tanjevic was present during the game Greece-Russia yesterday and thought it was an aimed defeat of Greeks. Such that he had an argument with Greek Player Bourousis after he kicked an ad board saying "there is no need for theater here".

Edit:

But it didn´t go as they planned and we will see Greece-Spain match in the next round.

Cheerleaders absent for Turkey matches at World Basketball Championships

The absence of scantily clad female cheerleaders at recent World Championship basketball matches involving host nation Turkey has raised eyebrows in the overwhelmingly Muslim but officially secular nation.

.....

Troupes of energetic cheerleaders have entertained the crowds at matches involving other teams in the tournament, but no dancers appeared during Turkey´s match against Greece on Tuesday nor their match against Russia on Sunday.

The Russia match was attended by Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his wife, who wears the Muslim headscarf.

"Are cheerleaders not allowed for Turks?" asked news website Gazeteport on Wednesday.

Below is a Turkish source: it says ´instead of cheerleaders, Bulent Arinc , who is Deputy Prime minister in the government, will be reading poetry during the breaks for motivation´ lol
