Casspi scores 18 in loss to Montenegro

8

Omri played well the first quarter, active on defense, and after a dunk on a fast-break got going offensively, with another dunk and a 3. He finished the 1st quarter with 9 points and 2 rebounds. He sat at the start of the 2nd quarter. When he came in he blocked a shot (didn't get the stat) and took an athletic defensive rebound. On offense, he moved very well without the ball, and made some nice passes, playing well within the team's system without forcing stuff. In the third quarter, Omri started with an offensive foul. He took a good spot-up 3 but missed, and later also a ball in traffic. He picked up a nice assist after slashing to the hoop and dumping it to Eliyahu. Omri hit his next 3. Then he had a dunk. At the end of the quarter he drew a foul and hit one of two free throws. Final quarter, tight game. Casspi opened with forcing a turnover by the Montenegro team. He missed a tough hookshot after establishing good position with his back to basket. A bit afterwards, he went to the bench and Israel lost control of the game. He was quickly inserted again, and drew a foul on a fast-break. He scored on another fast break. Too little, too late. Nevertheless, Israel secured a place at the European Championship next year. Highlights here. For the whole qualification tournament (8 games), Casspi averaged 16.9 points, with 5.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in little over 29 minutes. His stats are here.
