Tonight we went and watched Fenerbahce play Mersin in the President's Cup. Fenerbahce was the top team going into tonight's game, but Mersin ended up beating them by around 20. Both teams have a couple WNBA players on each team. Mersin has Ivory Latta, Erlana Larkins, and Barbara Turner on their team. Fenerbahce is a good team, but 2 of the WNBA players (Penny Taylor and Tammy Sutton-Brown) have just finished playing in the WNBA Finals, so they have not been able to get acclimated with the team that much. Fener also has Nicole Powell on their team, as well as 1 or 2 other Americans....so they are pretty loaded!
Tomorrow is our last day to prepare for Fenerbahce. As we were leaving the game tonight, Coach said, "We can beat Fenerbahce". Even thoughthey got beat, they have a lot of talent on their team!! We will see how the game goes Friday afternoon :).
GO CANKAYA!!! :)
I am off to read and then get some shut-eye!
