Turkey, which could have reached the top of the group standings, also did not achieve their third victory in the third game. In a dramatic duel, however, they lost 83:88 to home side Georgia after the second overtime. According to the media, the nervous and excited atmosphere would have moved from the deck to the locker room area, where, according to the Turkish team, a physical confrontation would have occurred between the player Furkan Korkmaz and three Georgians. “If we do not receive the material from the security cameras, we will leave this tournament,” threatened the vice president of the Turkish association, Ömer Onan, according to the Eurohoops portal.
