Basketball, Family Style
In football in England there’s a tradition known as “Lads and Dads”, where amateur football teams are put together consisting of, as you may have guessed, kids and their fathers.

Should ever such a trend take hold in FIBA Europe competitions (unlikely, but still...) we could get a pretty good side together here at the UMCOR U18 European Championships in Madrid.

Israel Top Estonia

Israel won their second game of the tournament in an immensely close 70-69 victory over Estonia.

After only winning one game each so far this game was always only going to be about final standings rather than qualification for the semis, yet it was a game that neither side wanted to lose.
