    Maccabi USA proved too good for their British counterparts

    Maccabi USA came away with a perfect record from a three-game series against Team Maccabi GB in London, upon the English leg of their European tour.

    The visiting delegation played a number of exhibition games against other London teams, whilst also taking on Great Britain's best Jewish basketball players. The five-day tour also featured a Shabbat service at Marble Arch Synagogue, followed by a Friday night meal with the GB team.

    Maccabi USA's European Basketball tour delegate Donna Orender said: "We experienced the warmth, hospitality and competitive spirit of Maccabi GB. These boys made memories that will last a lifetime and the joining of two of the world's Jewish communities will long be savoured.

    "We are so appreciative of our Maccabi community and the opportunity that sport brings to developing Jewish pride."

    Maccabi USA won the opener 71-27. This was followed by respective 76-42 and 71-34 victories against GB."
