Barak Netanya Win Thanks To Banks, Travis

07 December 2010

Barak Netanya still missed plenty of free-throws but this time beat Belgacom Liege 78-67 in the EuroChallenge.

Tuesday's Group D victory for the Israeli club was its second in four games while Liege suffered their first defeat in the competition.

Playing at home this time, Barak Netanya got 24 points from the leading scorer in the EuroChallenge, Adrian Banks.

It was Banks who missed vital free-throws at the end of the first encounter that allowed Liege to escape with a narrow win in the opening week of the Regular Season.

While his team only hit 21 of 33 (63.6%), Banks drilled a very impressive 11 of 14 (78.5%).

Romeo Travis was also outstanding for Netanya, finishing with 23 points and 11 boards.

The hosts only led 69-65 after a lay-up by Liege's Guy Muya.

But Elton Brown answered with a jump shot and then Banks made a pair of free-throws to settle the nerves as Netanya pulled away for an 11-point triumph.
