Euphoria, excellence and excitement. Is there a better way to describe Turkish women's basketball now, after Ceyhun Yildizoglu's team went on an unexpected and remarkable run to the EuroBasket Women Final?
EuroBasket Women 2011 had a motto of 'expect the unexpected' and was so packed with surprises, it was almost predictably unpredictable.
If historical precedent were all that mattered, Russia would be preparing for their coronation as EuroBasket Women champions in Lodz on Sunday night for the third time in ten years.
It wasn't the smoothest of rides but a rampant Russia finally reached their destination to top the podium and be crowned EuroBasket Women 2011 champions.
