AYVA Cup Tournament Highlights
Bilkent Versus Hacettepe
The most recent game between Bilkent and Hacettepe mens basketball teams took place at Bilkent last Thursday, on December 17. Bilkent began the game in a very ambitious and promising mode. Especially since their effective offense made up of fast-breaks and well-chosen shots let Bilkent get ahead by 10 points. The crowd was also in the mood and this motivated our players, encouraging some players to play above their ability. The first period ended 14-6 in our favor.
At the end of the second period, the scoreboard showed: 27-19 in our favor again. In the third, Emre Can (no:12) continued to show his skills on defense. The Three-second corridor was well closed by him but Hacettepes no:11 started to shoot well from the outside. Bilkents Can Soylu (no:14) went a little too hard on the drives got into foul trouble soon, including a technical foul.
Bilkents Serter (no:8) tried several three-pointers and missed them all. Hacettepe then took total control of the game, their no:11 showing some outstanding skills on offense. The score reached a decisive 33-33 tie. After that, Hacettepe began tough-defending and the third period ended 40-34 for Hacettepe.
The last period began with our well-managed defense. However, some easy shots were missed. Our no:12, Emre Can was injured and was out of the game. In the last minutes Bilkent committed some tactical fouls and it was able to close the gap substantially. If only Hacettepes no:4 had missed the last foul shots and we could score one, the game could have turned our way, but he didnt miss, and Bilkent lost the game. At the end of the game, the score was 62-58 for Hacettepe.
