Beşiktaş Milangaz 98, Hacettepe University 78

In its third Turkish Cup Group A game, Beşiktaş men’s basketball downed Hacettepe Unversity to advance to the last eight.

The Black Eagles came out on fire in the opening quarter, and were up, 34-20, heading into the second. A tenacious defense supported by Marcelus Kemp’s hot-hand kept them in full control rest of the half as they went on to build a 55-33 cushion by the break. The same scenario continued in the second half with Beşiktaş Milangaz rolling to a comfortable 98-78 victory.

Deron Willams and Marcelus Kemp each scored 24 points for the Black Eagles while Zoran Erceg had 23.
