Hapoel Jerusalem will aim to grab second place in Group D on Tuesday when it faces Crvena Zvezda Belgrade in Serbia-Montenegro in the final game of the ULEB Cup regular season.
Hapoel, which routed Crvena Zvezda 103-77 last month at Malha, will secure second place and home-court advantage in the first elimination round of the competition with a win. The reds can also remain in second if they lose by less than 26 points, providing that Roma defeats Le Mans.
Two Jerusalem stars, Horace Jenkins and Mario Austin, will also be out for personal accolades.
Austin, who has all but assured the rebounding crown with 9.9 per game - 1.8 more than his closest competitor - can also overtake former Hapoel point guard Lamont Jones for the MVP index lead with one more point than Jones. Jenkins, second in the league with 20.9 points per game, will also be hoping for a poor game from Jones, since he can climb past him for the scoring crown if he outscores Jenkins by at least nine.
