Sinai Says: Blue-and-white have played themselves into nowhere-but-up status

Israel’s national basketball team has rarely entered the European Championships with lower expectations.

Injuries, a poor preparation period and disappointing displays in recent tournaments mean very few people believe the blue-and-white can record any achievement of significance in EuroBasket 2015, which gets underway on Saturday.

Israel faces Russia in its Group A opener in Montpellier, France on Saturday, the first of five games in six days in the group phase. The team will enjoy a rest day following the contests against Finland and Bosnia-Herzegovina before wrapping up its group games with encounters against Poland and France.
