After the dramatic victory over Villeurbanne in France, Maccabi Tel Aviv meets Virtus Bologna in Italy tonight (Friday) in the 13th round of the Euroleague. The Yellows came into the game in sixth place with seven wins and five losses, with their strong rivals ranked third, with eight wins and four losses.
John DiBartolomeo is still not fit and absent again, James Webb is ill and is not available to Oded Ketch, who hopes to hold on against one of the most impressive teams in the factory this season. Luca Banchi's Virtus proudly showcases Toko Shengelia in a terrific season, with 37-year-old Marco Bellinelli, Daniel Hackett and Jordan Mickey also setting the tone for the Italian league leaders.
