Even before the dramatic basket, scored with less than a second left in overtime to set up 99:100 for the Turks, it was a great personal night for the 22-year-old Israeli. He finished with 17 points, a career high.
And back to a moment that Mader won't forget anytime soon. Real Madrid were on their way to another victory, which would have put them 0-11 in the Euroleague. She led 98:99 and had the ball in her hands with seconds left in the contest.
Fenerbahce's players' pressure on Facundo Campazzo led to a bad delivery by the Argentine, which was snatched up by Marko Gudorić. The Serbian guard (21 points) passed the ball to Yam Mader, who penetrated the basket and finished with his left hand to record the highlight of his young career.
