Pınar Karşıyaka, who went out of the Play-Off line in the Turkish Insurance Basketball Super League, could not make the exit she wanted in Europe.
Pınar Karşıyaka, who went out of the Play-Off line with 3 losses in a row in the season that started with 3 wins with her renewed staff in the Turkish Insurance Basketball Super League, could not make the exit she wanted in Europe. Karsiyaka, who started the FIBA Champions League, which played the final in 2021 and bid farewell at the Play-In stage last season, despite its goal of becoming the championship last season, was unable to win 2 consecutive wins in Group B. Kaf-Kaf started the season by beating AEK 91-88 in a no-spectator match at home, then surrendered 83-71 to Telekom Baskets Bonn in Germany. In the third match, Karşıyaka defeated Reggio Emilia 83-76 despite being shot by the audience, and lost 74-70 on the road yesterday.
The Karşıyaka caravan, which went to Italy away with the managers, families, fans, Karşıyaka Mayor Cemil Tugay and Çiğli Mayor Utku Gümrükçü, on a private plane with flight number “FH 1912”, in commemoration of the foundation year of the club, experienced the sadness of the defeat. Karsiyaka, who scored 0 on the road despite 2 in 2 at home in the Champions League this season, made it difficult to qualify directly to the last 16 with the group leadership. Head coach Ufuk Sarıca of the Izmir team, which will host Bonn in the next match in the group on Wednesday, December 7, stated that they are experiencing the difficulties of being a new team, and said, “We will work on our mistakes, we will talk about it. We have 2 matches ahead of us, we will do our best to win both of them.”
