THE TAKE

Banvit Bandirma of Turkey will face Buducnost of Montenegro this week, in a game that it needs to win after losing its first Last 16 game. Despite its size and experience under the boards, Banvit dropped 20 offensive rebounds to Budivelnik last week in Kiev and has to improve its defense and boxing out if it is to avoid a repeat this week. Buducnost played an impressive team-oriented game in its win over Triumph Lyubertsy in Week 1, with four players scoring in double digits. Regular Season Week 4 MVP, Banvit big man Chuck Davis, combines with Vladimir Stimac and Kenan Bajramovic to form an amazing frontcourt, and their tussle with Gerald Lee, Marko Popovic, Dusko Bunic and last week’s MVP Cedomir Vitkovac will be critical in the game. Buducnost collected 40 rebounds in its opening Last 16 game -13 of them on offense. Banvit, meanwhile, pulled down 34, again with 13 on the attack, so the battle under the boards is sure to prove decisive in this one. Defensive pressure is another key for Banvit, but forcing turnovers and shots against a team that lost just 9 balls last week will not be easy. Point guards Kalin Lucas and Aleksa Popovic are not only top decision makers but also good scorers for Banvit, while scoring ace Sammy Meija -a former Euroleague MVP of the Week and Eurocup MVP of the Week- will be the main worry for the Buducnost defense.

Quotes Head Coaches

ENE, ORHUN
Banvit BK Bandirma
"We have lost the first game of the Last 16 in Ukraine and Buducnost won at home against Lyubertsy. This game will be very important for both teams. Because the group will be the one of groups that the rivalry will continue till the very last second of the last game. We all know that each and every game will be very tough games. We would like to use home court advantage in front of our fans. I wish Buducnost good luck."
RADONJIC, DEJAN
KK Buducnost VOLI
"We will try to play well, especially on defense. We have to play much better defense than we did, especially in the first half against Triumph. If we manage to do it, be focused and keep the confidence level that we built until now, maybe we will have a chance to surprise them. Banvit is a solid team with experienced players in European competitions. They are really ambitious this season."

"We have strong opponents in the group. We lost the first game but we will fight to make it Quarterfinals. I wish them good luck."
VITKOVAC, CEDOMIR
KK Buducnost VOLI
"Banvit is a great team that is atop the Turkish League standings with just two losses. They are really dangerous at home. This is a great oppotunity for us to show that we can play a good game on the road. All Eurocup teams have an excellent offense and are strong individually. If we play good defense, we may have a chance to win."
Vladimir Stimac - Banvit BK Bandirma (photo Valencia Basket)Banvit BK Bandirma held off Buducnost Voli Podgorica 89-80 to pick up its first victory in the Last 16. Both teams now have 1-1 records and are tied for second place in the Group I standings. Banvit grabbed control of the game midway through the second quarter with an 8-1 run. Although Buducnost came within 63-62 in the third quarter, the hosts never gave up their advantage led by Chuck Davis and Vladimir Stimac, while Sammy Mejia sealed the deal in the final two minutes of the game. Stimac finished with 17 points plus 9 rebounds, while Davis also scored 17. Mejia and Serkan Erdogan added 14 points apiece, and Kalin Lucas chipped in with 12 for Banvit. Aleksa Popovic led Buducnost with 16 points. Cedomir Vitkovac finished with 15, Demarquis Bost netted 11, and Strahinja Milosevic scored 10 in defeat.

Davis kicked the game off with a basket-plus-foul, and last week's Eurocup Last 16 MVP Vitkovac opened visitor's account with a three-pointer. The teams traded leads early on, as Mejia and Keith Simmons scored inside to join Davis on Banvit's score-sheet, while Aleksa Popovic made a layup and Vitkovac added a couple more buckets inside for 9-9. Simmons and Aleksa Popovic exchanged triples, and Aleksa Popovic sunk another long-distance shot for 14-15. The same player soon scored a layup for the visitors before Bost’s layup-plus-foul made it 18-22 after 10 minutes. Davis and Kenan Bajramovic scored on back-to-back possession twice to tie the score couple of times at the start after of the second quarter, but Dusko Bunic scored twice inside for the visitors, including a layup-plus-foul for 28-31, and Nikola Ivanovic and Milosevic each added a layup of their own to keep Buducnost in front. Banvit, however, replied through Erdogan and with a dunk from Mejia, before back-to-back layups from Stimac gave the hosts 41-36. Before the quarter's end, Aleksa Popovic and Marko Popovic each hit a triple for Buducnost, but Mejia and Stimac made sure Banvit stayed with the lead, and Erdogan's triple gave the hosts a 48-42 halftime advantage.

Gerald Lee made a pair of free throws to open the third quarter. Mejia hit a jumper, but Bost answered with a triple cutting it to 50-47. Banvit proceeded to go on a 7-1 run, though, as Kalin Lucas converted basket-plus-foul and Stimac scored inside. Bunic made a basket inside, and Vitkovac hit one from long range, before Lucas and Stimac answered right back to keep the lead at 61-53. Vitkovac, however, made a layup and a jumper to spark visitors’ run, and after Milosevic and Bunic each added a layup of their own, Buducnost was within 63-62. The hosts got more separation with free throws from Erodgan and Stimac, before Bajramovic hit a triple making it a 7-point game, but Milosevic replied with a three-pointer that ended the third quarter, 69-65. Lead was back to 9 points in the fourth quarter after baskets from Erdogan and Davis. While a layup from Bost was visitors’ lone field goal in the first 5 minutes of the quarter, Stimac and Lucas went inside to extend the lead to 78-68. Baskets from Lee, and a triple from Milosevic cut it to 79-75, but after Simmons and Marko Popovic traded triples, Mejia and Davis hit jumpers on back-to-back possession and Mejia added a layup for 88-78 and sealed the deal.
