The Take

In a high-profile game, Zenit St. Petersburg (4-0) puts its undefeated record on the line against Besiktas Sompo Japan Istanbul (3-1). Last season Besiktas swept their regular season series, winning an overtime drama in St.Petersburg by 86-90. The Turkish side also has victories in both of its away games this season and aims to snap Zenit's unbeaten run. In another classic showdown, PAOK Thessaloniki (1-3) welcomes Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (1-3). Rytas ranks first in forcing turnovers (18.8), but it has not translated into victories or points, considering that the team is in the middle of the pack with 80.5 points per game. The Lithuanian powerhouse only has one win this season, but that came on the road. Szolnoki Olaj (0-4) hosts Avtodor Saratov (3-1), which boasts the competition's highest-scoring offense. The hosts have made the most turnovers this season, 78 in four games, and they will have to take better care of the ball against Avtodor, which scores 93.8 points per game, more than 4 points better than the next-best offense in the competition.

Quotes Head Coaches

POR, PETER
Szolnoki Olaj
"Saratov is a very offensive-minded team, they score an average 93.5 points a game which is high. We have to stop their quick offense with a team effort, not individually, and we should also reduce the turnovers which we had problems in recent games."

Players

KELLER, AKOS
Szolnoki Olaj
"We really want to get the first win under our belt, now we have a chance to do it against Saratov. The Russian outfit is strong and plays lots of type of sets, changes its defense during certain periods and unpredictable in offense. We will do our best to get a good result in front of our supporters."

Szolnoki Olaj
"Since I took over as a coach, this was the first game that we played the way I want the team to play. My philosophy starts with good defense, we did that today. If the players are committed and willing to fight, we can carve out results. We played as a unit, the win was a real team effort. "
GREENBERG, BRAD
Avtodor Saratov
"It was a tough game, Szolnok played very physically and shot very well all match. We made two comebacks during the second half, tied the game twice, but in the last minute we could not play what we wanted. It is a pity because we had a chance to win, even without three key injured players. We came here shorthanded, but that is not an excuse. Congratulations to Szolnok.”

VOJVODA, DAVID
Szolnoki Olaj
"This victory was very important for us, probably a milestone for the team. We was focused for almost 40 minutes, defended well and showed that we can play this way as well. Thanks to the fans, who turned out today and cheered us, we hope they come in numbers in the future. If we can beat PAOK next week, we still have a slight chance to qualify for the next round."
PETERSON, TRAVIS
Avtodor Saratov
"Szolnok played well and shot the ball remarkably. In the second half we found our plays and rhythm and came back to level the scores, but at the end we turned the ball over too many times. "
