Basketball 2015: Blue-and-white looking for first win of prep

Israel star Omri Casspi is confident the national team can take a significant step forward in its preparations for EuroBasket 2015 in its final warm-up tournament in Croatia this week.

The blue-and-white dropped to 0-5 this summer following Sunday night’s 79-71 defeat to Serbia at Yad Eliyahu Arena. Israel also lost to last year’s World Cup finalist a day earlier after previously suffering setbacks against Macedonia and Ukraine.

Israel will play three games in as many days in Zagreb, facing Bosnia and Herzegovina on Wednesday before playing Estonia on Thursday and Croatia on Friday.
