The Israeli team maintained a perfect balance in the European Championship qualifiers after defeating Romania 71:79 in a game held in a bubble in Poland.
The Israeli team that secured its promotion to the European Championship even before this game, won a team that did not win any game in the tournament.
With this victory, Israel secured the victory under the leadership of the First House.
The game did not rise to a high level and what stood out was the number of times the ball was lost - 39 in total, of which 22 to Romania.
The team led in the half 31:45 and later it increased the difference to 52:69 in the fourth quarter.
The Romanians knew how to reduce to 71:75 less than two minutes to go, but the Israeli team knew how to keep the victory.
Roman Sorkin in the first game in which he took part in the team uniform stood out with 18 points on 80 percent from the field.
Jake Cohen scored 14. Yam Madar and Tamir Blatt (7 assists) scored 10 points each.
On Sunday, Israel will end its performances in the 2022 European Championship qualifiers in a game against Spain.
