Turkish League Round 3 October 22nd-23rd

Another round of games started on Saturday with Cukurova getting closer to a full complement of options and a good debut from Jonquel Jones, but they still had to rally to win 73-70 against Jantel Lavender and the recently promoted upstarts. Neither team was at full strength when Bursa edged Reshanda Gray and Orman 65-62. Feyonda Fitzgerald led Antalya, which finally had their foreigner spots filled, in a 78-71 win over Tan White and Cankaya University. Kamile Nacickaite fired Galatasaray past their city rivals Besiktas 72-58. Jessica Thomas had a good game for Nesibe Aydin in an 83-68 win over Hatay. On Sunday, Ruth Sherrill and Rize were close to their first win, but Ezinne Kalu and Keyona Hayes helped Kayseri prevail 80-78. Fenerbahce found themselves completely surprised by Botas, losing 71-65 as they are starting to have to make decisions about how to deploy their lineup domestically.
