Here is the explanation:
“In the FIBA 2022 European Championship Group A, our Men’s National Team faced off with Georgia, one of the hosts of the organization, on Sunday, September 4, 2022.
In addition to this incident, the match clock continued at 4 minutes and 26 seconds, although the game was stopped after Duda Sanadze from Georgia fouled our national player Furkan Korkmaz with 4 minutes and 48 seconds left in the match. As the Turkish Basketball Federation; We condemn the decision to reject the objection of the rule error we made at the end of the match for the 22-second lost time.
As the Turkish Basketball Federation; We do not accept this decision of FIBA, which rejected the objection because ‘there was a time error in the 4th quarter of the Turkey-Georgia match, but it could not determine that this loss of time would definitely change the outcome’. We will seek all our rights regarding the decision taken at the International Court of Arbitration for Sport CAS.
We also trust the athletes of our National Team and our technical team, and we think that European basketball will deteriorate from its current position if FIBA, which has a say in the management of basketball in Europe, does not create a fair management climate.
