Quoted from A.A.

Galatasaray won the EuroLeague championship after beating archrivals Fenerbahce in a historic ´Turkish derby´ in Europe´s highest basketball competition for women.

Fenerbahce, last year´s runners-up, succumbed once again in the final, their first loss in this year´s tournament.

Galatasaray seemed to have everything going for them on the offensive end early on, which - coupled with a solid defensive effort - gave them a massive lead with 26-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Fenerbahce fought back in the second and third quarters to keep the points gap to single digits and managed to reduce Galatasaray´s lead to a mere 2 points with five minutes to go in the game. However, the Lions held their own to become the EuroLeague champion, a first in Turkish women´s basketball.

Galatasaray previously won the second-level European competition, FIBA EuroCup Women, in 2008.

According to an article the Turkish teams have reached to the europen finals 39 times so far, 22 of which are in the last 4 years.

 

But this was the first of its kind because it was the first all-Turkish Eurepean final.

 

Edit:
