Israel advanced to the final of the Haarlem basketball tournament in the Netherlands on Saturday, defeating Brazilian club Conti Assis 97-82. The national team, which is now a perfect four of four in the tournament after also beating Estonians Valga Welg (99-69) in group play on Friday, will face the winner of the second semifinal between Den Bosch and Minas Tenis Clube in Sunday's final. A 33-17 third quarter all but clinched the win for Israel, which was led by Yuval Naimi, who scored 21 points.
