Greece Crush Israel

Greece remained perfect at the end of the Preliminary Round in Group A at Poznan after a 106-80 win over Israel in the last day of the championship.

The game had no influence on the final standings whatsoever and as a result Coach Jonas Kazlauskas chose to rest Ioannis Bouroursis towards the Qualifying Round where Greece will carry two wins in a great pole position for the Quarter-Finals.

Little On The Line For Greece And Israel

The closing game of Group A in Poznan between the group's winner Greece (2-0) and the team to go home Israel (0-2), will have no influence on the final standings in the group.

Both team's destiny is set in stone already, so for both teams it will be a good chance to think about the future.
