Trailed for most of the first half, but Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem built on a 12-0 finish to the second period to defeat Telenet Giants Antwerp, 94-72, on Wednesday.
After two consecutive Basketball Champions League defeats, James Feldeine paced the Israeli club back on track with 17 points to go along with five rebounds. Suleiman Braimoh, Mindaugas Kupsas and TaShawn Thomas followed with 12 each.
J’Covan Brown was also among top performers with 11 points in 15 minutes, but suffered a right leg injury. His early exit certainly raised concerns for the team coached by Oded Kattash.
The hosts slid to a 5-2 W-L tally in Group B dropping Christophe Beghin’s side to 2-5. Luka Rupnik’s 15 points at the Pais Arena did not prove nearly enough for the Gameday 7 “W”.
