GAME REPORT


Hapoel Edge EclipseJet MyGuide In Drama

The result has left both teams with 2-2 records in EuroChallenge Group E.

Trailing 59-48 in the final minute of the third quarter, the Israelis turned the game around in the fourth quarter when they outscored the Dutch hosts 24-14.

Sneed's three-point play with 2:12 remaining put them in front for the first time in the fourth quarter at 68-66.

The home side went back into a 69-68 advantage, however, on a three-point play from Clint Harrison.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes EclipseJet MyGuide vs. Hapoel Jerusalem

Arik Shivek, EclipseJet MG Amsterdam coach:

"We didn't lose the game when Avis Wyatt or Teddy Gipson missed the shots. We lost when we played alley hoops instead of a simple lay up in two-against-one situations, when we were ten points ahead."

Stefan Wessels, EclipseJet MG Amsterdam:

"It is a sad loss for us, but we have to move on."

Guy Goodes, Hapoel Jerusalem coach:

"The tables were turned this time. In Jerusalem we didn't make this shot and this time we made it."

Timothy Bowers, Hapoel Jerusalem player:

"I'm happy with the win. We worked hard for the victory."
