Teksüt Bandırma and Anadolu Efes enjoyed opening day victories, as the group phase of the Gloria Cup basketball tournament began in Antalya.

Turkish Basketball Super League side Teksüt Bandırma defeated Turkish rivals TOFAŞ Bursa 108-86 in Group A at Gloria Sports Arena.

Teksüt forged a 50-45 lead at half-time and built on that to record a first victory, with Erkan Yılmaz named as the game's most valued player.

Tarık Phillip top-scored for TOFAŞ, who take on Russians CSKA Moscow in tomorrow's only Group A battle.

In Group B, Istanbul-based Anadolu Efes needed overtime to see off the challenge of Lithuanian side Zalgiris Kaunas.

Zalgiris had a narrow 44-42 half-time lead but the sides finished level at 88-88.

Nigel Hayes closed out the game with 27 points for Zalgiris, but they were in vain as Anadolu sealed a 100-98 victory to go top of Group A.

Zalgiris will get a second bite at the cherry tomorrow when they take on Galatasaray Doğa Sigorta.

Galatasaray will provide stern opposition, having won the Turkish Basketball Super League 16 times.

The group games conclude on Friday (September 13), with the finals on Sunday (September 15).
