Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem beat Ryats Litivius 84-77 to clinch Eurocup's quarterfinals spot. The reds hold a 4-1 record after five games in the Top 16 stage and in case of a win at Nizhny next week or Zenit loss to Rytas, Hapoel will clinch home-court advantage in the quarterfinals as well. 

Tarence Kinsey had his best night of the year as he led the team with 23 points. Lior Eliyahu was a key factor in tonight's win with 13 points and Travis Peterson was hot from the start with 12 points. See the highlights:
