Eurobasket: Israel clinches last-16 berth with win over Poland

In what looked to be an impossible scenario just last week, Israel will play host and defending-champion France for first place in EuroBasket Group A on Thursday night.

The national team secured its progress to the Round of 16 with a game to spare on Wednesday night, registering a 75-73 victory over Poland in Montpellier, France, to improve to 3-1.

Thanks to its tie-break advantage over both Finland and Poland, the blue-andwhite is already certain to finish the group no lower than second position even should it lose to France.
