The final score was 85-56 as Anadolu Efes made the first step in the TBL semifinals against Trabzonspor. After a relatively close first period – 18-12 for the hosts – the game ended up being a blow out win for the team of coach Ivkovic.
Birkan Batuk had 14 points for the winners, while Dario Saric added 11 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, demonstrating his all around talents. Greek forward Stratos Perperoglou added 10 points and Dwight Hardy with 19 points was the top scorer of Trabzonspor.
Efes is considered the favorite of this series against the Eurochallenge finalists and at least on Game 1 nobody can argue against this.
