For the fourth time this summer, Israel has no problems with Poland, 92-67. Shason didn't play because of an incident with Coach Sherf. Tomorrow: the last game against host Turkey.

Israel's national team crushed Poland tonight in Istanbul, 92-67. That was the fourth victory of Israel on the Poles this summer, after 3 wins in Israel.

After 20-15 in the first quarter, Israel geared up and ran to a 49-28 lead. The second half was garbage time, which allowed the teams to test new lineups.

Avi Sukar led the team for the first time with 14 points, Shelef added 12, Kozikaro 11, Burstein and Watson 10 each, Mizrachi 9, Markovic and Hajaj 8 each, Green 6, Nissim 4, Tapiro didn't score.

Sharon Shason didn't play because of an incident he had with Coach Zvika Sherf yeseterday against Turkey B. Shason, who was a starter in Coach Katzurin's lineup last year, was benched this summer and after Sherf took him out last night, he said something "inappropriate". The player appologised, but Sherf decided to punish him.

Tomorrow (18:30), Israel will face host Turkey, which they won 81-71 on Thursday. It'll be Israel's last friendly game before the Additional tournament for the European Championship in Belgrad.
