Israel Upbeat After Narrow Triumph

Israel are so confident after their 69-67 triumph over Ukraine that coach Eli Rabi is giving his players a chance to make it all the way to Turkey for the EuroBasket Women.

Their hopes looked bleak after Croatia beat them 74-66 in the opening game of the additional qualifying round in Group C for both sides, but  Israel bounced back to win a thriller against the Ukrainians, a game in which they made 13 of 16 free throws.
