At the arena, there were some Turkish supporters were present in Tours to support Arkas. Hermans Egleskalns, the Latvian opposite of Tours was the best scorer with 26 points Robert Täht, outside-hitter and top scorer of Arkas Izmir with 22 points:

It was an interesting game. It was a great war. The atmosphere here in Tours is amazing – this is what we play for.
