Anadolu Efes and Fenerbahçe will face off in a heavyweight showdown for the 34th Turkish Men's Basketball Presidential Cup in the capital Ankara tomorrow at 8 p.m. (1700 GMT).

The Turkish Basketball League's three-peat champions Fenerbahçe are looking to take home the President's Cup for a second straight time. Anadolu Efes, the winners of the Turkish Cup, however, have other plans as they look to extend their recent hot streak.

To date, Anadolu Efes has won the Presidential Cup 10 times, while Fenerbahçe has taken it eight times including last year, when it beat Banvit 75-64. The competition has been held every year since 1985, when Fenerbahçe won the first Presidential Cup with a narrow 85-84 victory over Galatasaray.
