THE TAKE

PGE Turow Zgorzelec is just 40 minutes of solid basketball from reaching the ULEB Cup Final Eight as it hosts BC Kyiv in the Last 16 return leg. Head coach Saso Filipovski's Turow grabbed a strong 71-59 road victory in the first leg and has great chances of continuing its fairy tale run to the Final Eight - where it will face either 2006 ULEB Cup champion Dynamo Moscow or Lukoil Academic. Shooting guard David Logan (25) and small forward Thomas Kelati (22) combined for 47 points with 8 three-pointers while big man Slobodan Ljubotina chipped in 15 points. The rest of Filipovski's team totaled just 9 points though playmaker Andres Rodriguez did collect 5 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and zero turnovers. All told, the Polish team turned the ball over just 9 times while forcing 15 Kyiv turnovers. Turow shot just 43% from the field, but Kyiv was held to just 40% for the game. Filipovski needs to make sure his men remain concentrated on the task at hand and don't get too over their heads with history on the line. Kyiv head coach Tomo Mahoric will ask his Ukrainian team to just chip away gradually at the 12-point deficit. Playing on the road will not help as Kyiv is just 3-3 away from home with a 10-point victory over Pau-Orthez the best result. Kyiv never was able to establish an inside presence against Turow, shooting just 36% from inside the arc. And playmaker Pooh Jeter was taken out of his game, scoring 15 points but turning the ball over 7 times. Forward Manuchar Markoishvili totaled 12 points while small forward Marcus Faison hit for 10 points but made just 2-of-9 shots. And forward Artur Drozdov was held to 8 points (6.4 points below his average) as he did not start for the first time this season. Turow will need to slow down Logan and Kelati and hope Jeter can regain his form and one or two others can hit some long balls to have a chance for the Final Eight.

A three-pointer by an unstoppable Maravic and a free throw by Jeter gave Kyiv a 47-58 lead, a one-point deficit in the series. Kelati made free throws that Rodriguez followed with a layup-plus-foul for a 52-58 Turow deficit with 5 minutes remaining. Davis sank a baseline jumper that Jeter followed with free throws but Rodriguez scored in penetration and Drobnjak added a jump hook to keep Turow within 56-62. Kyiv did not right away but free throws by Jeter gave the guests a 56-64 lead with under 2 minutes to go. Jeter stroke from downtown to get Kyiv within striking distance, 56-67, with 37 seconds to go. Logan shined with a driving layup that made Kyiv call timeout with 15 seconds remaining. It all came down to the final play but Markoishvili missed a three-point shot in the final seconds that allowed Turow to advance to the Final Eight!

"I would like to congratulate my players because they left their hearts on the court. I would also like to thank the fans came here to Liberec because they are our biggest support. I'm really happy that we won today. I'm also proud of Andreas Rodriguez because he twisted his ankle, but he put all his heart in the game. He left his heart on the court. I think we proved that we really wanted to win. That game was very important for us and we were very nervous, but we won. That is important."
MAHORIC, TOMO
BC Kyiv
"First of all, congratulations to Turow for qualifying to the Final Eight. They are a very strong team. My feelings are mixed. On one side, I am proud of my players: on the other side, I am sad because we were so close and we didn't manage to do it."

KELATI, THOMAS
PGE Turów Zgorzelec
"This is unbelievable, the feeling is great. We got great support from our fans. I am so proud of our team, coaches and everyone that supports Turow. I am expected a tough match because Kyiv is a very good team that plays very hard. I am happy we managed to hold off. I am very happy but not satisfied, because we still want to go to Italy and accomplish more. Nobody expected that Turow would go so far in the ULEB Cup. Everyone wondered where the team came from at the beginning of the season and we got some respect now."
