Default Re: eurobasket2009 qualifiers

GB got beat by Israel 102-92 in overtime. GB went to the foul line with 2.5 secs left & 1 point up. Reinking hit the 1st, then missed the second. Israel grabbed the rebound, & Reinking fouled with 0.5 seconds left! Israel made both free throws to take it to overtime. In overtime both Pops & Deng fouled, the latter was a poor, poor call. GB were robbed in my opinion, some very poor reffing, along with some "hail mary's" from Israel. GB are the real deal in Division A, & with players to come back (basically playing with 8 1/2 tonight ) things look very promising. Deng hit a game high 30 points, he did have 6 turnovers though. Not bad since he has only had 2-3 training sessions.

Another interesting thing was the crowd in Israel, only about 5000! At the O2 on Saturday versus the Czech Republic, we are expecting around 10,000!
