Blue-and-white opens camp with loss

Israel got its preparations for EuroBasket 2015 off on the wrong foot on Friday, suffering a 75-58 defeat to hosts Macedonia in Ohrid.

The blue-and-white was anything but impressive in its first game of the summer, with stars Omri Casspi and Gal Mekel both looking rusty.

Israel was also playing without Maccabi Tel Aviv guard Yogev Ohayon, who is recovering from illness, and Hapoel Jerusalem forward Lior Eliyahu, who remained in Israel due to personal reasons.
