Gaziantep Basketball’s future is in safe hands – Gaziantep Compass Newspaper

Completing the regular season and the final group leader in the men’s category of the Basketball Youth League, Gaziantep Basketball eliminated Fenerbahçe Ülker in the play-off quarter-finals and Galatasaray NEF in the semi-finals. Gaziantep Basketball won the championship by beating Beşiktaş 74-72 in the contested final match played in Istanbul and took the trophy to its museum for the first time in its history.

THIS SUCCESS INCREASED ATTENTION TO INFRASTRUCTURE

Gaziantep Basketball General Manager Boray Dai stated that they trusted the infrastructure staff very much at the beginning of the season, and that they had a team that never gave up in all matches and constantly struggled. Dai emphasized that they gave the impression of a team that won a match even by fighting against players who were physically superior to them, and that they were rewarded with a trophy.

WE HAVE A VERY YOUNG POPULATION

Dai stated that they are constantly making efforts to bring young people into basketball, and that they are constantly scanning for talent throughout the region, and continued: “In general, champions have always come from the west, from the Marmara Region. When you look at the interest and relevance there, things seem easier there. Young people who grow up in that region are in a more advantageous position. We also constantly scan the region. We do this not only in Gaziantep, but also in surrounding cities such as Kahramanmaraş, Adıyaman, Mersin, Adana, Şanlıurfa, Malatya. We have a very young population on the basis of Gaziantep. We are trying to evaluate this.

WE ARE CHARGING CONTINUOUS SUCCESS

Dai continued his words as follows; “There is an interest in basketball in Gaziantep, but the success in the infrastructure has increased this interest even more. We have started to receive a lot of demands regarding the infrastructure. We are in a promising position for the coming years. We have good players in the lower generation player groups. We will continue to be assertive in the infrastructure in the coming years,” he said. “The team behind is also very talented. We are looking for a continuous success.”

YOUTH’S ATTENTION TO BASKETBALL

Gaziantep Basketball player Emir Ali Göktürk said that he finished the final game with 22 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Stating that he was also proud to be selected as the most valuable player of the final, Göktürk stated that he had a feeling that is difficult to describe. Expressing that they are proud of the Anatolian team becoming the champion, Göktürk said, “As young people representing the Anatolian team, being the champion by beating 3 big teams is a very big event and story for us. It was a great happiness and experience for us. I have indescribable feelings, the story is very different.”

PEOPLE’S ATTENTION SWITCHED TO BASKETBALL

Stating that Gaziantep’s success draws attention to many points, Göktürk said: “The fact that this team became the champion opened a big door. The door was ajar because we did good things this season, but I think that our championship opened this door to the end because these things are about investment and finance. It’s a big event that Anatolian teams come to the fore and come to the fore. People’s interest has now shifted to Gaziantep Basketball. I believe that a big organization will be established in this city. People were more interested in Istanbul teams. They wanted to go there more, but “There is coming to Gaziantep, and then there is to come to Gaziantep, which has become a champion. I believe that the interest and interest of thousands of young people is now shifting to Gaziantep. I hope we will see better things in the future,” he said.
