Hill And Hassell Help Hapoel Holon


6. Franklin Hassell (Hapoel Holon)
Franklin Hassell claimed his fourth double-double in five EuroChallenge games

Excellent double-double displays by frontcourt duo Franklin Hassell and Lawrence Hill helped Hapoel Holon secure a 75-70 home win against Telekom Baskets to put themselves in the driving seat in EuroChallenge Group H.

The former had 22 points and 12 rebounds, with the latter claiming 17 points and 11 boards, in a tight game which the home side eventually sealed from the free throw line.

After a first half which had both teams embattled in an intense struggle to put any kind of daylight between themselves, it looked as if Hapoel Holon had finally made the break that mattered during the third quarter.

A triple by Jerome Dyson put them 56-46 in front with three minutes left of the penultimate quarter, but by the time three minutes of the fourth period had elapsed, Telekom Baskets had tied the scores via a three-pointer by David McCray.

It set up a nail-biting finale, but Hapoel iced the free throws they needed down the stretch to take their fourth win in five games.

Chris Ensminger had 10 points and 10 rebounds for Telekom Baskets.
