Both series started on Tuesday as the all-Turkish affair began. Abdullah Gul University used a strong final quarter to win 71-65 at Hatay and give themselves and advantage for the home game. Moriah Jefferson and Kayla McBride may soon be playing on the same team, but they were on opposite sides of a terrific battle with Quanitra Hollingsworth also helping push Yakin Dogu University to the 87-81 win despite Jefferson’s latest heroics for Galatasaray. That leaves both university-sponsored teams with narrow leads, but both will host the next game on Friday.
