Turkey: giant dreams


With an eye to amend their mistakes, considering its participation in the last World Cup, runner-up as hosts, and the last two European Championships, Turkey needs to strike again and easily qualify the second phase of Spain 2014.

Therefore, after the failure because of the tournament ranked 17th in 2013 in Slovenia, the Ottomans will begin his personal revenge in Group C, to be played in Bilbao, against New Zealand, Ukraine, Finland, USA and Dominican Republic. The stadium will be the Bizkaia Arena.

With Ergin Ataman as head coach, the goal of the highest ranked seventh in the FIBA ranking is to give a good show and to not disappoint as a year ago. Thus, those carrying the hard work will be the pivot Omar Asik, Ersan Ilyasova talented (he was injured several times this year) and the shipowner Kenan Sipahi, most valuable player in the U-18 Euro.

On the other hand, a sensitive and unexpected by his individual capacity is the lost of Hedo Turkoglu, the Turkish basketball reference, who finally retired from the national team earlier this year by choice.

Finally, Turkey is prepared yet for the main event and played four friendlies prior to start of the tournament. They will be more than enough for a team that already has a defined list while testing.
