Omer Asik, playing key role for 6-0 Turkey
Derrick Rose isn’t the only Bull in the FIBA World Championships, nor is he the only Bull on an undefeated team.
Turkey’s already defeated France to go 6-0 and make it to the quarter finals. In fact Turkey and Team USA might be heading towards a matchup in the World Championship finals.
Omer Asik plays a key role for Turkey as their third leading scorer, leading rebounder, and interior defender. I’m not going to lie to you, I hadn’t been follwoing Asik’s Eurpoean tour much, but on a slow labor day weekend, I decided to go back and watch a few of his games in the archives to deliver a scouting report.
I started off with the France vs Turkey given that the game was in the knock out round and France features a couple of NBA rotation players (Batum and Diaw).
