With just over two weeks left until opening day, the spotlight was on Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul on Monday morning for Media Day festivities marking the team's return to the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. The practice facility at the Darussafaka campus was decked out for filming, photos and interviews as most of the players on the roster noted the added excitement of either debuting in or returning to the EuroLeague themselves. Last season's 7DAYS EuroCup champions will get the season going in thrilling fashion, too, as they visit defending EuroLeague winners Real Madrid on the season's first night of action, Thursday, October 11!
