“This was a very important win for is and it was a terrific victory,” Ramat Gan coach Shmulik Brenner said. “The first half was crazy but we were able to hold down the fort and find our spots in the second half. We made aggressive switches to stop James Feldeine in the swooned half but they still hit some incredible 3-pointers. It wasn’t easy but I am happy that we were able to take the win.”
