After missing the playoff in Turkey last year, the club from Izmir seems to be ready to bounce back this season. The signing of the reputed Turkish coach Ufuk Sarica is already a big move. He led the team in the past to win the Turkish championship and he is coming back now to do new performances.
Sarica is not interested in mediocre results, he is coming when he can prove something and a club has financial stability. Almost everywhere he coached in the past the results were very good, that’s why we should expect a Pinar Karsiaka who will enter the Turkish playoff and at least the semifinals of the Fiba Europe Cup.
The sign of the new era started already with the addition of experienced guard Brandon Triche and BasketballCL champion Amath M’Baye, one of the strongest and clever power forward in Europe. The Turkish player Yunus Sonsirna is following the club from Izmir too. If the acquisition campaign will continue on this path, Pinar Karsiaka will start to look soon as one of the most powerful team both in the domestic league and in the continental competition.
