Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem hosted Bayern Munich in the 3rd round of the Eurocup's regular season and from the start the German team took a commanding lead. After Bayern won the 1st quarter 12-31, good minutes by Howell and Dyson closed the gap to a 10-point lead. Only in the 4th quarter Hapoel managed to take charge of the game and with the help of Daye, who had 13 points in a 19-2 run, that brought Hapoel within 79-85 in the next-to-last minutes. Free throws by Lucic and Redding allowed Bayern to get the W at Pais Arena.


Coach Katsikaris post-game comments: "How we reacted and how we fought in the last six minutes of the game is what I am taking from this game. It's not easy playing against a solid team like them, and we had options until the end. And that's what I want everybody to understand: that we can play hard, rebound, help each other... We created different situations in our options. We scored 83 points against a solid defensive team. We missed 15 free throws and 6 to 8 layups. We have to find the balance as a team and we can compete that way. I am optimistic."




Daye 28, Howell 13, Omic 10, Dyson 9, Ohayon 7, Perperoglou 6, Halperin and Timor 5.
