Turkey Cut

The European Basketball is ready for the Cup. Turkey have designed their preliminary team for the FIBA World Championship to have just 14 players with Indiana University ace Cem Dinc, Tofas swingman Ulug Kacaniku and FMV Isik center Omer Faruk Asik all giving way.

Indeed, main coach Bogdan Tanjevic looks increasingly likely to include Ersan Ilyasova, the MVP of the recent U20 European Championships in Izmir, and Cenk Akyol – a member of that all-tournament list.

As we said, Turkey finished runners-up to Serbia & Montenegro in the Izmir-based event.

The other 12 players still involved are Ermal Kurtoglu, Kerem Gonlum, Ender Arslan, Baris Ermis, Ibrahim Kutluay, Hakan Demirel, Semih Erden, Serkan Erdogan, Kaya Peker, Fatih Solak, Engin Atsur and Oguz Savas.

We must remember that Demirel, Erden and Savas were also involved in the U20 event.
