Elitzur Ramle became the first Israeli women’s basketball team to lift a European title on Thursday night, beating Arras 61-53 in France to win the Eurocup.

Ramle could only record a 61-61 tie in the first leg in Israel last week and dropped to an early deficit on Thursday.However, Adan Inbar’s team seized control of the encounter in the second period, outscoring Arras 28-9 after netting just five points in the first 10 minutes.

The hosts came back to within striking range in the second half, but Ramle held on to its lead to make local history.

“This was very tough, but we played smart basketball and claimed the win,” said Inbar.
