Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv stay undefeated at home, getting a 67:55 win over Fenerbahce, as they climb the EuroLeague standings with a 3:2 record. The hosts enjoyed another fabulous game by Omri Casspi (13 points, 6 rebounds) and Tarik Black (10 points, 15 rebounds) as they head out to Greece to face Olympiacos Friday night (21:30, live on channel Sport5).

"I want to congratulate our players for today's win, it is a big one as all of them gave significant effort, fighting for every ball forty minutes". Said Giannis Sfairopoulos at the post-game press conference. "In the first half, we had a great offensive flow, defensively we were excellent, allowing only 21 points and 6 first-quarter points. In the second half and mainly in the third period, we were nervous missing layups, free throws, and open shots, and they took advantage of scoring in transition, hitting open three's as the defense went down. The good thing is we didn't panic, and we successfully broke their rhythm".

In the end, The determination of our players was the difference". Concluded Sfairopoulos. "The determination, gave us the offensive rebounds, we got the ball back, and I think we controlled the game. We had an excellent game as we kept Fenerbahce to 55 points, and I think we deserved to win this game".

Coach didn't forget to thank the fans for their fantastic support: "I want to give a big credit to our fans, and I want to hug each one of them for their great support. Today I felt Menorah like the old days of Yad Eliyahu, as that was the most significant support in all the months I'm with the team".

"We're getting in our rhythm to finish games". Said Tarik Black in the locker room after the team's third straight EuroLeague win. "Teams like Fener are really good, and there are excellent teams in the EuroLeague, so it's going to be a tough competition. We have to learn how to finish games, and that's what we were able to do tonight".

Omri Casspi talked about the key for victory: "Defense, throughout the whole game. 55 points against a very good team, and a Hall of Fame coach. We knew they were going to play with pride, it was like a wounded animal. We were up big, but they made a run, which makes sense. I'm happy we got the win, we kept our composure, we made plays down the stretch, and we held them to 55 points, which is excellent".
