Fenerbahce Takes Turkish Finals Lead

Barbara Turner's Fenerbahce team took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven TBBL Finals with Thursday's 85-58 blowout win over Besiktas.

Turner had five points, three assists and two rebounds in 16 minutes of action. Fenerbahce was led by the 20 points of Tammy Sutton-Brown, who also added nine rebounds. Besiktas' Sheri Sam, a member of the Storm's 2004 Championship team, was held scoreless in 24 minutes of action on 0-for-5 shooting.

Storm fans should root for Fenerbahce to complete the series win in Saturday's Game 6, played at Besiktas. A win would make a huge difference for Turner's return, as Game 7 would not be played until Tuesday.

To a certain extent then, Barb holds her fate in her own hands in more ways than one. If she plays a career game in game 6 on offense and defense, Fenerbahce will stand a much better chance of wrapping up the series on Saturday, which will allow Barb to fly back here Sunday or Monday, instead of Weds. or Thursday. This would give her at least a couple more practices with the Storm and a better shot at reclaiming her 6th Woman position and the back-up 3 slot.
