Fenerbahce Beko picked up a domestic win on Saturday. A dominating display against Yukatel Merkezefendi led to a 93-68 victory in Pamukkale Universitesi Spor Salonu.

Returning to action after missing one month, captain Melih Mahmutoglu netted 5/12 field goals, including three triples, on the way to a 13-point showing in Round 22 of the Turkiye Sigorta Basketbol Super Ligi Regular Season. Connecting four three-pointers, Tyler Dorsey scored a team-high 18 points.
