GAME REPORT

Ukraine Edges Thriller With Israel

24. Ganna Zarytska (Ukraine)
Forward Ganna Zarytska led a balanced Ukraine offense with 14 points on 50% shooting from the floor

Ukraine maintained their impressive winning streak in EuroBasket Women Qualification Round Group A after a final quarter comeback helped them sneak past Israel in a real thriller in Yuzhne.

The hosts had looked like they would suffer at the hands of their opponents for a second time this summer, but a terrific last ten minutes helped them take a hugely important 71-68 success and extract revenge for their loss on gameday two.

Trailing 65-60 with just five minutes of the game remaining, Ukraine posted a decisive run of ten unanswered points and it swung the momentum in their favour just at the right time as Israel dried up offensively.

There was however still a nervous climax to the game as Shay Doron, who had 23 points, had a chance to force overtime for the visitors but missed, as a relieved Ukraine grabbed the precious rebound.

In fact, it was Ukraine's dominance on the glass and an impressive 14 offensive rebounds which made the difference.

Tetiana Panchenko set the tone for the jubilant home team at both ends of the court with six assists and six steals.

Meanwhile qualification looks an uphill struggle for disappointed Israel with Belarus, Hungary and Ukraine in the box-seat to take the two qualification spots on offer.

Quotes Ukraine vs. Israel

Israel Head Coach Eli Rabi
"We played bad in the final quarter of the game. Ukraine played very well. Five minutes to the end we stopped playing our system, we committed many turnovers."

Ukraine Head Coach Vadim Czeczuro
"Israel is a very strong team, but we played well against Doron. We played well on defence. A thank you to our fans for their support."

Israel player Shiran Zairy
"We lost many balls, we had few rebounds. Therefore, we lost the game."

"Israel is a strong team, the players always play well on offense. We tried to follow the instructions of the coach. We needed the win and we are glad that we won."
