Israel dropped to its second straight defeat to start its EuroBasket 2015 preparations on Sunday night, losing 88-83 to Ukraine in Ohrid, Macedonia.

The blue-and-white suffered a 75-58 loss to Macedonia on Friday and displayed only little improvement against Ukraine, despite making a late run to cut the margin.

Ukraine held a 43-42 lead after a tight first half and was ahead by six points (62-56) entering the fourth quarter. A 12-2 run to begin the final frame gave Ukraine a 16-point gap (74- 58), and despite closing to within five points (79-74) with 2:30 minutes to play, Israel could come no closer and dropped to another defeat.
