Finally getting a safe distance late in the fourth quarter, Fenerbahce Beko earned the win, 76-71, over Aliaga Petkim Spor Monday.

Marko Guduric poured 16 of his 19 points in the second half of the BSL Regular Season Round 13 game. Johnathan Motley followed with 15 points. Dyshawn Pierre logged a ten-point, ten-rebound double-double. Devin Booker, Nick Calathes, and Kostas Antetokounmpo sat out alongside injured Nemanja Bjelica (calf) and Tonye Jekiri (groin)

Dealing with the pressure of losing six of the last seven games between the domestic and continental level, the team guided by Dimitris Itoudis managed to control the previously tight affair in crunch time. Therefore improved the league-leading W-L record to 11-2. Down to 10-6 in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season, upcoming Round 17 schedules a trip to Lithuania to face Zalgiris Thursday.

The top performer for the hosts, experienced center Jeremy Simmons finished with 19 points. Peyton Aldridge posted a ten-point, ten-rebound double-double. Losing shaped a 5-8 record.
