Mirsad Turkcan pulls 1000th rebound!
January 3, 2008
Euroleague Basketball history was made on January 3, 2008 when Mirsad Turkcan became the first player to grab 1,000 rebounds since the competition was created in 2000. Turkcan, currently playing for Fenerbahce Ulker, pulled down his 1,000th board early in the third period against Lottomatica Roma tonight. Turkcan, who is also the competition’s top rebounder again this season, has been an outstanding rebounder in all his Euroleague years at CSKA Moscow, Montepaschi Siena, Ulker and Fenerbahce Ulker, as well as in his only ULEB Cup season playing for Dynamo Moscow. His biggest Euroleague rebounding night came on January 10, 2002, when he grabbed 23 boards – then a Euroleague record and still the second best in the competition behind Antonis Fotsis's 24 rebounds – to help CSKA Moscow beat Buducnost 88-83. Turkcan has grabbed more than 20 rebounds in four Euroleague games with three different teams. He is also the all-time leader in rebounds per game (10.6 rpg.), total defensive rebounds (713), total offensive rebounds (294) and defensive rebounds per game (7.5 drpg.), as well as third in offensive rebounds per game (3.1 rpg.) behind Tanoka Beard (3.4 orpg.) and Joseph Blair (3.2 orpg.). Denis Marconato is second in the all-time rebound list with 840 boards. Luis Scola (810 rebounds), Nikola Vujcic (808) and Gregor Fucka (775) complete the all-time Top 5.
