THE TAKE

Kalise Gran Canaria has a long road to climb to reach the ULEB Cup Final Eight as it hosts the Last 16 return leg after losing by 25 points at Galatasaray Cafe Crown. Head coach Salvador Maldonado's Gran Canaria allowed Galatasaray to shoot 61% from the field while hitting just 43% for the game and getting out-rebounded 31-23 in a 99-74 loss. The Spanish team also forced only 8 Galatasaray turnovers. Forwards Sitapha Savane and Niklas Canar-Medley both tallied 14 points while center Kornel David added 11 points off the bench. But shooting guard Carl English was held to 12 points (15.5 ppg coming in) and made just 4-of-11 attempts. But the main problem for Maldonado's team was its lack of defense as Galatasaray shot 67% from inside the arc and still made 11-of-23 (48%) from three-point range. Gran Canaria has a long way to come back and will need some hot shooting from outside if it hopes to reach a Final Eight showdown with either Besiktas or Red Star. But at least Maldonado's team is heading home, where Gran Canaria is a perfect 6-0 during the ULEB Cup, including a 20-point victory over Bosna after losing the first game of the Last 32 series. Galatasaray however would need a total meltdown to not make the Final Eight. Head coach Murat Ozyer's Turkish team was led by 27 points and 7 rebounds from reserve forward Chris Owens, who was one of five players to score in double figures including forward Charles Gaines' 14 points and 7 rebounds. One of the keys to the game was the return of playmaker Dee Brown, who collected 10 points, 3 assists and 3 steals in 20 minutes off the bench in his first game since the end of the regular season. With Brown back and a 25-point lead to boot, Galatasaray need to play just an average game to advance.

Nike Caner-Medley - Kalise Gran Canaria Galatasaray Cafe Crown advanced to a ULEB Cup Final Eight showdown with fellow Turkish club Besiktas despite an 88-79 loss at Kalise Gran Canaria in the Last 16 return leg. Armed with a 25-point first-leg win, Robert Hite's 20 points and 8 rebounds led four Galatasaray players in double figures for a 178-162 aggregate victory over the two games. Cuneyt Erden hit 5 three-pointers for 15 points and had 5 assists while Dee Brown and Chris Owens both had 15 points as well. Carl English tallied 24 points in a losing effort, Kornel David added 12 and Roberto Guerra had 11.

Sitapha Savane opened the scoring for the hosts and Charles Gaines answered for Galatasaray. But Sergio Perez and Niklas Caner-Medley knocked down three-pointers for a 10-2 Gran Canaria lead. Hite hit a long-ball and Brown scored to trim the deficit to 10-7. Perez connected from downtown again for a 15-9 advantage, but Owens hit from long range on the ensuing possession. It was 21-15 after an English triple. English's free throws gave the hosts a 25-20 advantage after one period. Joel Freeland's basket started the second to push the lead to 27-20. But Owens scored twice and Erden hit a three to even the game at 29-29. David's foul shots gave the hosts back the lead, but Erden hit back-to-back threes for a 33-35 lead. Britton Johnsen pushed the advantage to 37-41. But English scored 10 points – including two three-pointers – in an 11-0 run for a 48-41 cushion at the break.

Dee Brown - Galatasaray Cafe CrownEnglish continued his hot stretch with a triple to start the second half for the first double-digit lead – 51-41. Owens converted a three-point play and Gaines scored to cut the deficit in half. Caner-Medley and Marcus Norris pushed it back to 55-46. But Hite tallied 4 straight points and Brown and Erden both hit from long range to give Galatasaray the lead again 55-56. Gran Canaria pushed back ahead on a David basket but another Erden three-ball helped Galatasaray grab a 59-61 lead after three periods. Johnsen opened the fourth period for Galatasaray. Gran Canaria still had a long way to go but regained the lead on Roberto Guerra's three-ball. And Mario Fernandez's long ball made it 70-64 with six minutes left. Guerra knocked down another triple for a 73-64 advantage. Brown stopped the surge with a three-pointer though Victor Baldo again hit from downtown for a 78-69 lead with less than 3 minutes to play. And Hite's three-ball for an 80-74 deficit ended for good any miracle hopes for Gran Canaria.

"In Istanbul we had some bad minutes which destroyed all the hard work we did this season in this competition. This system wasn't fair to us because it punished a mistake that really cost us. In general, they were better and they go to the Final Eight. The vrowd was amazing and we could offer a good basketball show."

"We started well and we managed to get a starting lead but they were always there and never let us take over. That made us slow down a little, too. They were superior in Istanbul, but not so much here. Anyway, now we can only think about the Spanish League and try to get as far as possible."
