Turkey was eliminated from EuroBasket contention on Saturday.

France eliminated Turkey from EuroBasket on Saturday with a 76-53 beating and in doing so sends Ersan Ilyasova back to the States where he'll get ready for his first training camp with the Detroit Pistons.

Big thanks to MichiganBillsFan84 for keeping us in the know on Ilyasova's performance in EuroBasket. If you didn't see MichiganBillsFan84's FanPosts, my bad for not getting those on the front page.

As MichiganBillsFan84 first relayed, Ilyasova recorded a double-double against France with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Ilyasova finished the overall EuroBasket competition with a respectable average of 15.2 points on 43-percent shooting (33 percent from three and 83 percent from the line) and 4.5 rebounds.

Ilyasova is going to be a big part of the Pistons' rotation this season, so it's nice to see him healthy and doing well, even if it was against lesser competition overseas.

Training camp will be here before we know it!

Now your thoughts.
