Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem start their 2015/16 Eurocup campaign with a loss 92-71 to BC Nizhny Novgorod.

Head Coach Danny Franco talked to the press after the game: "Congratulations to Nizhny, they deserved this win. We had a lot of black and white spells in this team. At moments we looked good, but sometimes we played like we should never allow ourselves to play. It’s impossible to beat a good team in 15-16 minutes. I’m sure next week we’ll be better."

E.J Rowland added: "In the second half they really separated from us, they were very organized and made some big shots. They paid attention to the details and that was the difference tonight".

Scoring for Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem: Fischer 25, Eliyahu 19, Rowland 15, Smith 7, Duncan 3 and Gaffney 2.

Scoring for Nizhny Novgorod: Berzins 22, Antonov 15, Grigoryev 14, Mahalbasic 13.
