Israel Bring Greece Back To Earth

Israel have one foot in the semi-finals of the ACI Trading Ltd U20 European Championship Men in Chekhov after a 60-51 triumph over previously unbeaten Greece.

The Eliyahu show - forwards Lior and Elad - combined to score 35 points as the Israelis got their noses in front midway through the second quarter and then turned away several comeback attempts by the Greeks to record victory on the opening day of quarter-final action.
