Game Day Round Up #4 – Turow at Poznan

It is not over until the final buzzer sounds! This was a great game for Turow! Poznan jumped out ahead with an early lead and kept building on it. By halftime they have exploded to take a 40-20 edge into the locker room. We came out very lethargic and did not play with the enthusiasm to match their energy. They played extremely good team basketball and if felt like there was a lid on our basket. We missed easy lay-ups, shot from the outside, and consecutive free throws. Poznan capitalized off of all our mishaps and converted them into baskets. Poznan is a very good team, very talented and was eager for this win.

The game was not over at halftime. Turow kept chipping away at the lead. We stepped up our enthusiasm and sense of urgency. The defense began to rise to the occasion we got stops and held them to 8 points in the 3rd quarter. Suddenly the momentum was shifting in our direction and we kept battling for every possession. All of sudden we are in the fourth quarter with 12 seconds remaining and I come off a high screen and roll with Marko Brkic and he nails a 3 pointer to tie the game!!

Overtime it is in Poznan, after being down by 20 points at halftime we have forced it to go into the extra session. The extra five minutes came down to the last 20 seconds of the game! Poznan takes the lead on a drive and dish by Hawkins to Stelmach. In the next possession I get it on the left wing drive baseline then spin back to the middle of the court I see Bartosz Bochno open in the corner I dish it to him and he sets his feet and hits the shot all net!!! Turow wins by 1 point!!

Patrick Okafor who put on a monster performance with 20 points and 10 rebounds led Poznan. Also in double figures for Poznan was Grzegorz Surmacz with 12 points.

The silent assassin Marko Brkic led Turow with 19 points including 5 triples! Also David Jackson had 16 points and 4 rebounds, I finished with 18 points 9 assists, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals. Bartosz Bochno was the hero of the match with his huge shot to win the game!

What a great effort by Team Turow to pull out this victory. We still had a nice cheering section right behind our bench! The loyal fans that still were cheering even though we were down 20points believed in us and we are very fortunate for your support! Go Turow!
