Galatasaray Cafe Crown stayed undefeated atop Group E by downing Panellinios 79-53 in Istanbul, Turkey on Tuesday night. Galatasaray confirmed its status as the top candidate to win this group and will seal a Last 16 spot if it beats Panellinios in Greece next week. Josh Shipp led the winners with 19 points on 7-of-8 two-pointers. Tutku Acik added 15, Preston Shumpert had 12 while Rado Rancik got 10 for Galatasaray. Djuro Ostojic had 15 points for Panellinios while Manolis Papamakarios added 10. Panellinios trailed 16-15 after 10 minutes but an outstanding Acik and three-pointers by Shumpert and Evren Buker allowed Galatasaray to boost its margin to 35-22 at halftime. Nothing changed after the break, as Rancik, Luksa Andric and Shipp allowed the hosts to make it a 20-point game, 50-30, late in the third quarter. Panellinios kept trying but Galatasaray managed to seal the outcome long before the final buzzer.

Rancik got Galatasaray with a free throw, as Panellinios picked up 3 team fouls in the opening 33 seconds. Papamakarios, however, struck twice from downtown for a 1-6 lead. Andric stepped up with a close jumper that Joseph Krabbenhoft bettered with a three-pointer. Taylor Rochestie tried to change things with a backdoor layup but free throws by Papamakarios kept the guests ahead, 5-11. Galatasaray found a go-to guy in Shipp, who had 6 points in a 10-0 run that allowed the hosts to regain the lead, 15-11. Ostojic made free throws and Ioannis Karathanasis sank a long jumper for a 15-15 tie. A foul shot by Acik restored a 16-15 Galatasaray edge after 10 minutes. Acik nailed a corner triple early in the second quarter but a put-back layup by Maurice Bailey kept the guests within 19-17. Buker and Shumpert joined the three-point shootout to make the guests call timeout at 25-19. Acik set the crowd on fire with another three-pointer but Karathanasis shined with a reverse layup for a 28-21 score. Acik kept pacing Galatasaray with a layup off a steal and an off-balance shot from downtown, good for a 33-21 lead. Buker shined with a layup in transition to make it a 13-point game, 35-22, at halftime.

Rancik sank a mid-range jumper right after the break, as Panellinios went scoreless for more than 2 minutes. Andric fed Shipp for an easy layup that Ostojic matched in the other end. Rancik sank free throws and followed Andric's easy basket with a fast break layup to break the game open, 45-26. Panellinios called timeout and Krabbenhoft tried to change things with a wild over-the-backboard jumper. Shipp shined with a fast break dunk but Ostojic kept the guests within 48-30. Shipp took over with a power basket but free throws by Dimitrios Kompodietas and Ostojic kept Panellinios within 50-33 after 30 minutes. Papamakarios buried a baseline jumper and Ostojic added a tip-in but Shumpert kept his team way ahead, 55-37, early in the fourth quarter. Shipp sank free throws and a reverse layup by Ermal Kuqo sealed the outcome, 59-39, with 7 minutes left. Both teams kept working hard for points differential, which could be a critical issue in the outcome in this group. Acik and Shipp buried three-pointers, as Galatasaray dominated the boards and kept its momentum going. By the time Kuqo made free throws, everything was said and done, as Galatasaray had cruised to a well-deserved, convincing home win.

"This is a good win for us but we have to continue to play this kind of basketball. We play good defense tonight and managed to control our opponents, especially in the second and third quarters. We now have to fous on our next games."
SKOURTOPOULOS, ATHANASIOS
Panellinios BC
"We have three injured players. Due to the Greek League games, my players are tired. We had 25 turnovers tonight and when that happens, you cannot even think on winning a game. We will do our best and try to win our three remaining games."
