Israel drops to dejecting defeat to Bosnia

Israel will have to wait at least until Wednesday to secure its place in the knockout rounds of EuroBasket 2015 after suffering a heartbreaking 86-84 overtime loss to Bosnia-Herzegovina in Montpellier, France on Monday night, the blue-and-white’s first defeat of the campaign after opening Group A with two consecutive victories.

The national team entered the game brimming with confidence after upsetting Russia and Finland to start the European Championships.

Israel led by as many as 16 points early in the third period on Monday, and despite allowing Bosnia to erase the entire deficit by the start of the fourth quarter, still had several opportunities to clinch the win and its place in the Round of 16 in the closing seconds of regulation.
