Besiktas Cola Turka improved to 5-0 atop Group B with a well-earned 64-73 victory on the road against Elan Chalon. Sinan Guler collected 20 points and 9 rebounds while Kaya Peker had 19 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals for Besiktas, which gained control of the game in the second quarter and never let Chalon threaten. Preston Shumpert chipped in 10 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists for Cola Turka, and Christian Dalmau had 9 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals. Chalon dropped to 2-3 in Group B despite 15 points and 12 rebounds by John Ford, who struggled with just 5-of-17 shooting from the field. Joachim Ekanga added 12 points and Xavier Corosine scored 10 points. Besiktas attempts to improve to 6-0 next week at home against BK Ventspils while Chalon hopes to even its record by hosting Köln 99ers.

Moussa Badiane put the hosts on the board first and Chalon led 6-4 on Ford's early basket. But Dalmau and Guler each scored 4 points in a 0-10 surge for a 6-14 lead. Baskets by Rowan Barrett and Ekanga pulled Elan to within 11-14 only to see Shumpert and Guler score in the final minute to give Besiktas a 13-21 advantage after one period. Ford opened the scoring in the second and Ekanga's three-ball made it 20-23. Besiktas answered right back as back-to-back baskets by Sandro Nicevic started a 0-9 run to make it a 12-point game again. Guler's score pushed the cushion to 25-39 and Besiktas was leading 29-41 at the break. Ford's foul shot began the second half before Dalmau's long ball gave the guests a 32-48 advantage midway through the third. Already ahead 36-50, Guler's three-pointer completed a 2-9 surge to push the lead to 21 points - 38-59. And Barrett's three-ball trimmed the gap to 45-59 going into the fourth period. Besiktas did not let Chalon start well in the fourth, as Peker and Guler combined to score the first nine points of the period - building a 45-68 advantage. Chalon attempted to come back and Corosine's three-pointer made it 55-70 with four minutes left. Cevher Ozer answered with a three-ball of his own, but the hosts continued their surge. Corosine knocked down another long ball and Abdelmajid Naji scored to cut the deficit to 64-73 in the final minute. But Chalon had much too little too late.
