Israel Bounce Back To Top Bulgaria
Omri Casspi rebounded from two disappointing performances to lead Israel to an 85-69 victory over Bulgaria at the U20 European Championship Men, bouncing back after their disappointing loss to Italy a day earlier.

Israel's defeat against the co-hosts knocked them out of the running for the semi-finals, but Yakov Gino's team proved too much down the stretch, using a 10-0 run to outscore the Bulgarians 31-15 in the fourth quarter.
