Nahariya Hold Their Nerve And Beat Khimki

08 November 2005

Ironi Iscar Nahariya are hoping this will be the year they finally make it to the EuroCup Final Four after coming close the last two seasons in the FIBA Europe League.

Tuesday night's triumph, an 83-79 thriller at home against Russian juggernauts BC Khimki, is sure to fill the team with confidence.

Cory Carr, Jayson Wells and Branko Milisavljevic all had 19 points for the Israeli side, which trailed for most of the game until the fourth quarter when they got their noses in front and claimed a narrow win.

Victory, one glance at the boxscore will tell anyone, was due in large part to the disparity in rebounds.

Nahariya, who were smarting from their 93-96 setback at Nymburk, had 40 rebounds - 12 of those grabbed by Uri Kokia - to just 21 for the visitors.

Next up for the Israeli team is a clash against Basket Swans of Austria on November 16 while Khimki take on Nymburk in the next round.
