GAME REPORT

Belarus Clinch Third Win In A Row

5. Aliaksandra Tarasava (Belarus)
Aliaksandra Tarasava scored 10 points as Belarus cruised to yet another victory.

Belarus are looking very good bets to make it back to the EuroBasket Women after clinching a third win in as many Qualification Round games on Wednesday at the expense of Israel.

The Group A contest was about as tight as it could be for the first 33 minutes with Belarus on top, 56-54.

The hosts then reeled off seven unanswered points and ended up claiming a 69-61 victory.

Anastasiya Verameyenka can do a lot of things to help her teams win games and one of them is shoot from long range.

She started the decisive run with a three-pointer and Nataliya Trafimava and Aliaksandra Tarasava followed with baskets to make it 63-54.

Israel got no closer than six points the rest of the way.

Verameyenka was outstanding from behind the arc, nailing five of seven attempts.

As a team, Belarus hit nine of 18 shots from long range.

Veteran small forward Zhanna Haradzetskaya was two of three from behind the three-point line.

Veterans Liron Cohen and Shay Doron led Israel with 17 and 16 points, respectively.

In a sloppy encounter, Belarus had 21 turnovers and Israel 19.

The Israelis are now 1-1, having opened their campaign with a 15-point home triumph over Ukraine.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes Belarus vs. Israel

Israel coach Eli Rabi:
"We believed in our victory but the Belarusian team was stronger today. I believe in my team. We came to win but today we couldn't do it. We missed many free throws. That's basketball. Sometimes players make it, sometimes not."

Israel player Liron Cohen:
"Congratulations to the Belarusian team. They deserved it. They were better in the second half."

Belarus coach Rimantas Grigas:
"Today we had a lot of turnovers. It's not good. We must not exceed about twelve turnovers. We had a few unforced errors. Today we lost one more player, Ala Murauskaya. And now we have big problems with small forwards. I don't know who will substitute her and Snytsina. We will think about it."

Belarus player Tatsiana Likhtarovich:
"I think we held the leaders of the Israeli team, that's why we won."
