Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem recorded their 1st Eurocup of the season after beating Reggio Emilia on the road. It was Jerome Dyson's clutch three-pointer that gave the Reds the lead with 17 seconds on the clock. The American guard finished as the team's top scorer with 22 points.

Coach Katsikaris said afterwards: "We had a very bad start in the competition with three losses and a lot of up and downs in our games. And the worst problem we had was our defense; we were receiving almost 90 points, which is a huge number if you want to compete and win games and to be a winning team. This was the game for us to react and stay alive. We changed our defense and I really like that we insisted to play until the last second".


Boxscore: Dyson 22, Omic 3, Perperoglou, Daye and Howell 8 each.
