Albert-Schweitzer-Turnier 2006

Turkey

Finally! Finally, the nearly thousands Turkish fans might have thought after the AST 2004 finals.-We did it finally! During the 19th participation of the Turks in the Albert Schweitzer Tournament they succeeded in winning the long expected title after being placed in the 2nd place in 1965, and 1975. The enthusiastic supporters were turning the US Sports Arena into a madhouse and were celebrating the tremendous success with a so far hardly known enthusiasm. The Turks were storming unbeaten through out the whole contest and didn’t give the Argentines any chance. With that they came as the title holder to the AST 2006 in Mannheim and reached the final again where the Turks lost to France. Even in 2008 Turkey reached the final but lost to Greece with 82:96.

And those who have been following the Turkish development of the next generation’s basketball players during the last years know that it’s hardly able to defeat the Turkish representative team. The last two silver medals during the U16 European Championship in 2004 such as in 2005, the third place in 2009 or the eight place during the junior European Championship in 2003 give proof. At the U19 World Championship 2007 Turkey came in 7th place.
