Antonio Bueno - DKV JoventutDKV Joventut stormed its way into the Eurocup Last 16 in Group D by thrashing Besiktas Cola Turka 108-92 in Badalona on Tuesday. Joventut improved to 3-1 and already qualified to the next round along with Unics Kazan, first with a 4-0 record. Besiktas dropped to 1-3 and is mathematically out of the competition, just as Telekom Baskets Bonn, fourth at 0-4. Uros Tripkovic led 8 Joventut players in double digits with 20 points on 6-of-7 three-pointers. Antonio Bueno added 13, Pere Tomas had 12, Luka Bogdanovic and Clay Tucker each got 11 while Edu Hernandez-Sonseca, Kristaps Valters and Alain Koffi contributed 10 apiece for Joventut, that fired in 16-of-29 shots from downtown.

Joventut led 27-19 after 10 minutes and boosted its margin to 57-41 at halftime. Besiktas only managed to trade baskets early in the third quarter and a rain of three-pointers allowed Joventut to control the game and cruise to a well-deserved win.

Bueno scored in the paint and Tucker struck twice from downtown to give Joventut an early 8-2 lead. Lonny Baxter scored inside and Atsur scored in penetration but a put-back dunk by Koffi and an easy basket by Bueno gave Joventut a 12-6 lead. Ozer sank free throws and Kerem Ozcan added a put-back layup but Mario Fernandez followed a layup off a steal with free throws to keep Joventut out of trouble at 16-10. Hernandez-Sonseca dunked it and Tomas added a driving layup for a 20-12 Joventut margin. Valters and Tomas made free throws and Tripkovic added a corner triple to make Joventut keep a 27-19 margin after 10 minutes. Valters took over with a layup-plus-foul and Tomas downed a three-pointer to boost the hosts' lead to 33-20. Fletcher shined with a three-point play and a triple but Bogdanovic struck from downtown and Hernandez-Sonseca sank foul shots for a 38-26 score. Hernandez-Sonseca and Bogdanovic kept pacing Joventut and a triple by Tripkovic broke the game open, 46-31. Chatman returned to the floor but could not changed things, as Besiktas only managed to trade baskets now. Bueno followed free throws with a four-meter jumper to give Joventut a safe lead, 57-41, at halftime.

Engin Atsur - Besiktas Cola TurkaTomas shined with a driving layup immediately after the break and Tucker beat the shot clock with a big basket in penetration for a 61-42 score. Baxter sank free throws but Tucker fed Hernandez-Sonseca for consecutive baskets, good for a 63-44 Joventut lead. Henk Norel rolled off a pick to dunk it, as Joventut dominated the game now. Ozer tried to change things with a three-point play that Tucker erased with a bomb from downtown. Baxter took over with a layup-plus-foul and Atsur buried an open triple to give Besiktas some hope at 72-57. Tomas got the crowd involved with a three-pointer, igniting an 8-0 run that Bogdanovic capped another shot from downtown for a 80-57 score. Chatman and Atsur got Besiktas within 86-64 after 30 minutes. Tripkovic downed a three-pointer early in the fourth quarter but Chatman followed an acrobatic layup with a basket-and-foul for a 89-71 Besiktas deficit. He didn't find much help around, as Besiktas only rallied once the outcome was clear. Back-to-back triples by Tripkovic and a layup by Koffi allowed Joventut the 100-point barrier, 101-82. All Joventut fans had the chance to celebrate that their team will keep fighting for Eurocup glory after a big shooting exhibition.

"Today is a day to enjoy and take some air in the Eurocup. We managed to do some things that we had not been accomplishing in the last games, and the young players were stellar, especially Pere Tomas. We must not think this was an easy game as Besiktas is only second behind Efes Pilsen. Lonny Baxter has not played at his usual level against us, and they also missed a key player like Brad Newley. We worked throughout the 40 minutes and together with the support of the fans, we managed to pull a good win."
BIYIKTAY, BURAK
Besiktas ColaTurka
"I want to congratulate DKV Joventut because they played a great game, with good defense and accuracy in offense. We didn't play at our level in defense and we missed Brad Newley. Joventut knew how to impose its law in the paint, where Bueno was a key man in the first quarter. We scored more than them in the final minutes, but the game was already broken open."

"We took the step forward we needed to take, not only with our game, but also with the result. I want to highlight our good defense during the first half. That marked the outcome of the game. Being already in the Last 16 in the way we did tonight leaves you satisfied. But our goal is to keep working now to become a better team."
