akoon-purcell leads galatasaray to win over ex-team

Last season DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell led Tofas, but this weekend, the Trini-American guard led Galatasaray to an 88-77 win over his former teammates. The former Denver Nuggets player led his team’s scoring with 23 points while pulling 4 rebounds and having 6 assists in the game.


The game was a roller coaster, as teams changed leads and led interchangeably at the end of each quarter. Tofas led at the end of the first quarter 25-23, but Galatasaray led 51-40 at halftime. In the third, Tofas outscored Galatasaray 24-12 for a one-point 64-63 lead, before Galatasaray won the 4th quarter and the game 88-77.

Galatasaray are third in the standings with a 9-5 record.
