Maccabi Rishon Lezion was thumped by BC Siauliai 92-62 in Lithuania on Wednesday night and missed out on a place in the second round of the FIBA EuroCup. Rishon would have advanced with a win and even could have progressed with a small loss. However, the 30-point defeat ends the team's European season. Rishon was led by Reggie Moore, who scored 17 points and took seven rebounds, with Petar Arsic scoring 14 points. The game's MVP was Siauliai's Darius Pakamanis, who scored 27 points. Neither Israeli representative made it past the first round of the lower-tier European club competition, as Ironi Nahariya lost 92-83 to Club Estudiantes in a Group A game on Tuesday night and was knocked out after finishing third in the group.
