Hapoel Jerusalem makes things trickier for itself with loss

Hapoel Jerusalem lost all hope of winning Eurocup Group D on Wednesday night, but more worryingly did so by dropping to a dejecting 88-68 defeat at Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar in Russia.

Jerusalem secured its qualification to the Top 16 with an 81-69 victory over Olimpija Ljubljana last week. But it fell to a 4-3 record in Russia and will battle for second place in its final group game against Ulm at the Jerusalem Arena next week, with its heavy loss combined with Valencia’s 75-72 win over Ljubljana clinching first place for the Spaniards.
