Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem are in Italy for a 9-day training camp and over the weekend the team participated in the Olbia Tournament. Hapoel met Dinamo Sassari on Saturday night and the reds lost 85-88. It was a close game after Hapoel managed to cut back a 16-point deficit in the end of the 3rd quarter but clutch shots from Jerome Dyson (23 pts) weren't enough to get the victory. Curtis Jerrells had 17 pts and Amar'e Stoudemire added 14 pts. Shawn Jones scored 11 pts from the bench, Tarence Kinsey posted 10 pts and Lior Eliyahu finished with 4 pts. Bar Timor and Travis Peterson played but didn't score.

On Sunday night, Hapoel bounced back from the loss and beat Caserta 80-74. Curtis Jerrells was on fire from deep with 5-for-9 and finished the game with 18 pts. Shawn Jones continued to show his promising talent with 14 pts and Lior Eliyahu had a good game with 8 pts, 8 ast and 6 reb. The rest of the team: Dyson 11 pts, Peterson 10, Timor 6, Stoudemire 3 and Menco 2.
