Cevher Ozer - Besiktas Cola TurkaDespite already being eliminated, Besiktas Cola Turka put its stamp on Group C by ending Benetton Basket's undefeated season with a shocker 80-89 road win in Treviso, Italy on Tuesday. An amazing 0-18 run with under 5 minutes to play started with forward Cevher Ozer blasting 3 three-point shots in 45 seconds to put Besiktas ahead for good. Bennetton fell to 4-1 and now must beat Khimki away next week to finish first. Had it not lost to Besiktas, Benetton could have lost by up to 17 points against Khimki and still finished first. Besiktas improved to 2-3. Ozer finished with 27 points, forming a dynamic duo with Mire Chatman, who scored 30 while collecting 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Adem Oren added 12 points and Jimmy Baxter 11 for the winners, who were down 76-71 before the final push. Gary Neal led Benetton with 20 points, while Sandro Nicevic put up a double-double of 19 points and 10 assists. Matteo Soragna chipped in 11 points and Radoslav Rancik 10.

Benetton blasted off to a 7-0 lead on as Rancik, Neal and Domen Lorbek scored. Ozer's three-pointer helped Besiktas go get in the game, and soon Chatman hit a go-ahead layup between 7 points by Oren that had the visitors ahead 12-18. Nicevic scored 5 in a row for Benetton at the end of the first quarter, but Besiktas still led, 15-20. Ozer and Haluk Yildirim lengthened the lead to 18-26 with 3 points each before Neal hit from downtown. Ozer stayed strong with 7 points in a 0-9 Besiktas run to the first double-digit lead, 24-37. Benetton reacted with a 13-1 run before Neal tied it from downtown, although Baxter's late layup kept Besiktas ahead 40-42 at the half. Nicevic and Ozer exchanged 2 baskets each as a 46-46 tie was forged soon after halftime. Oren and Chatman, re-opened the Besiktas lead to 48-55, but Lorbek got Benetton closer and Neal took back the lead from long range at 57-56. Chatman answered right back, also from downtown, and appropriately enough, the teams finished the third quarter at 61-61. Again in the final quarter, Besiktas roared ahead on triples by Chatman and Oren to lead 66-71. And again Benetton answered, this time with 10-0 blast of which Nicevic had 2 baskets. But Besiktas had Ozer, who came out of a timeout and proceeded to bury 3 three-pointers in a row to take the wind out of Benetton. When Chatman added free throws and Mehmet Yagmur his own triple, Besiktas was up 76-85 and Benetton's hopes for an easy route to first place were gone.
