A rematch of last year’s fantastic finals started on Monday. Yakin Dogu University was forced into a lineup change and while they still had solid backcourt production, it was not enough against a hungry Fenerbahce squad in an 83-76 loss. The teams now have a day off before resuming their series as Fenerbahce will be looking to extend their lead before they get to host while Yakin Dogu University will be trying to avoid building a deficit that they cannot overcome.
