Judge orders Goettingen-Besiktas replay

The Eurocup’s independent disciplinary judge has ordered a full replay of the BG Goettingen vs. Besiktas JK Cola Turka game from the second week of the competition’s regular season.

The judge ruled that the original game was invalid due to the failure of the game clock to stop at the end of 40 minutes, seconds before Gottingen made a shot that broke a tie between the teams. Besiktas immediately protested the result and formalized its protest within the allotted 48 hours for documentation to be presented. The judge, Patrick Grandjean of Switzerland, delivered his ruling on Tuesday. The Gottingen-Besiktas game will be rescheduled by the Eurocup organization, which assumes all costs associated with the replay. The date of the game will be announced shortly and the decision may be appealed in a time period of ten days.
