Posted on 10.12.2022

A Friday night matchup did not disappoint as Manisa secured a 73-66 victory over Besiktas. OD Anosike led all scorers with 17 points, and also added a team-high 8 rebounds in the home opener.

“It was a crucial win for us, one that we desperately needed even though it’s still early in the season” said Anosike. “Besiktas is a young team with great talent. We tried our best to take them out of their comfort zone throughout the game and it worked out. We’re happy to get our first win under our belt but we still have a lot of work to do”.

Manisa now sits in the middle of the pack with a 1-1 record, while Besiktas falls to 0-2. Next up, Manisa travels to Bursa to face off against BCL team Tofas on Saturday afternoon.

Although OD Anosike has been well traveled during the course of his career, he makes a new stop on his journey for his 10th professional season. Last week Anosike inked a one-year deal with Manisa BBSK, BSL newcomer in Turkey’s highest professional league.

“I’m excited about the opportunity” said Anosike. “Although I’ve played in some great leagues and countries, I’ve always wanted to play in Turkey. I’ve heard great things about their culture, people and basketball style and I’m looking forward to helping the club reach its goals. With the roster talent that we’ve been able to assemble this summer, it should be a fun year”.

Anosike will join his teammates at the beginning of September. After a month of preseason training and exhibitions, the team will begin the regular season at the beginning of October.
