Stephanie Collins and Temitope Fagbenle paced Great Britain with double-doubles of their own 19p/10r and 21p/14r respectively.

In a back and forth contest that went down to the wire, Doron had a chance to tie up the game but her last gasp layup went off the rim and into the waiting hands of Fagbenle as time expired. Israel will regroup and head to Portugal and Greece for the final two games on November 17th and November 21st later in the year.
