Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv improved their record to 14:6 on the EuroLeague season, after a tough fought 69:63 home victory over Ettore Messina's AX Armani Exchange Milano. Scottie Wilbekin was fantastic in the second half finishing the night with 22 points, Othello Hunter dominated inside the paint scoring 14 points and grabbing 14 rebounds while Dorsey continued tearing it up from outside, adding 14. 

"First of all, we are very happy that David Federman was back with us today, we saw him during lunchtime, and we dedicate the win to him", Said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos in his opening statement after the win. "Our players fought really hard, it's not easy to play two straight home games, especially against two very good teams, and this was the first time in club history that it happened during the regular season. We showed character, and we won, it's one of the biggest wins of the season, if not the biggest".

"I think after the first period improved and in the second half played much better", Summarized Sfairopoulos. "We played really well on defense, all the games against coach Messina are close because he focuses on stopping the opponent, and that's also how we do it here. In the fourth quarter, we went up by double digits, but Milan has quality and scored tough shots from outside that kept them close till the end".

"The players deserve a big congratulation, all the credit goes to them. I also want to congratulate our fans, they are amazing with their support, and we love to play in front of them".  



Scottie Wilbekin: "It was a great week, pulling through two wins over very good opponents. It was a little bit weird in the first half, and our team overall was a little lethargic. But we did a great job, the fans gave us energy, and we found ourselves in the second half".

Othello Hunter: "We really wanted to win these two clubs losing both games last time we met. It was a double week, so we had to fight, and everybody gave their all to play as hard as we did, these wins are very important for our mentality".

"My congratulations to Maccabi, they played hard, and they deserved to win", Complimented Milan's head coach Ettore Messina. "I'm very, very proud of the effort and the competitiveness my team put on the floor. They forced us some tough, contested shots, and their switch was very good. Their physicality and aggressiveness defensively gave us a hard time all game long. We don't have the athleticism to go one-on-one, but it's something we work on, and we'll try to fix for the future".
