Group B:

Group C

Bosna i Hercegovina

Group D

yet to be qualified


We are in a very tough group.....Lithuanai is always playing for the chapionship title no matter if it is the WC, EC or the Olympics.....

Croatia used to be a strong basketball nation, they still are but not as strong as before. We beat them in the last Eurobasket in Sweden!

Bulgaria is another eastern european country that can make surprises but i dont think they will have anything to say about in this group.

With this said we have come to our line ups:

Guard: Kerem Tunceri (Ülker)

Shooting guard: Hidayet Türkoglu (Orlando Magic)

Forward: Ibrahim Kutluay (Seattle Supersonics)

Powerforward: Mirsad Türkcan (Dynamo Moscow)

Center: Mehmet Okur (Utah Jazz)

With this team we should normally beat any team we play against but historically our main problems have been to play like a team. We have too many good individuals!

The bench:
Hüseyin Besok (Asvel/France)
Kerem Gönlüm (Ülker)
Serkan Erdogan (Ülker)
Ender Arslan (Efes Pilsen)
Kaya Peker (Efes Pilsen)
Alper Yilmaz (Efes Pilsen)


we have a very very good squad.... :thmbup:
