Turkish Basketball League live online - breaking news & live stream access via Livebasketball.com
The Turkish Basketball League (TBL), also known as the Turkish Premier Basketball League is the top professional men's basketball league in Turkey.
In its current form the league has been running since the 1968/69 season, consisting of 16 teams who play each other home and away during the regular season. The top eight sides in the division all qualify for the end of season play-offs, while the bottom two face a nerve-wracking relegation play-off.
As with the Turkish football league, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are two sides who regularly dominate the top division and feature in the Europe's elite club competition the Euroleague.
Both Galatasaray and Fenerbache have a storied history in the Turkish Basketball League with both teams winning the league title on five separate occasions – but they are not the most successful.
The team with the most title victories under their belt are Anadolu Efes and they have been victorious on no fewer than 13 times with their last being in 2012, while Eczacibasi are next in line with eighth championship wins – their last one was way back in 1989 as they no longer compete in the TBL.
