Evaluation of victory by our head coach Marina Maljkovic and our player Olcay Çakır Turgut

Fenerbahçe Safiport Women’s Basketball Team Head Coach Marina Maljkovic and our player Olcay Çakır Turgut made statements after the game Nesibe Aydın, where we defeated 73-71 in the first match of the Herbalife Nutrition Women’s Basketball Super League play-off semi-finals.

Evaluating the match and mentioning the support of our fans in his statement to Fenerbahçe Television, our head coach said, “We cannot dominate a very good team like Nesibe Aydın. So it will be a very difficult series. Nesibe Aydın did not surprise us after our disastrous first half game. Actually, we started badly. So we had a disastrous game in the first half. Coming back from 21 points is very difficult, especially at such a level. This was very important for us in a final quarter where the team gave their all. I am happy about that. I also want to congratulate my players, but the point I will celebrate is only the fourth quarter. Fenerbahce style should be this aggressive game. Congratulations to the whole team for their fourth quarter performance. We need to spread this out.

Thank you very much to our fans. I want to see even more of it in every game. The continuity of the fans since the beginning of the match is what we want to reflect on the team. This continuity was also the driving force of the team. So thank you to the fans.” said.

Olcay Çakır Turgut, on the other hand, said, “(The match) We made a very bad start. We made a lot of mistakes. I am proud of my team. Thank you to our fans. They supported us. We came back gradually, overcoming the difference of over 20. This match is the first match of the series. We still have 2 more games to win to pass the semi-finals. Twice I sprained the same ankle, hit my neck, but it doesn’t matter. The important thing was to win the match. As a whole team, we were tired, everyone was hit, but everyone played to win. I am proud of my teammates.” he said.
