Basketball / EuroBasket qualifiers / Pnini defends his performance, as Israel prepares to face Serbia.
Another defeat for Israel Tuesday night would be a major blow to the national team's chances of qualifying for next summer's EuroBasket tournament.
After a tough season with Maccabi Tel Aviv, hopes were high that a different Guy Pnini would turn up for the Israeli national team. But the player who was once a byword for stability has become anything but, and it seems that wearing the national team uniform isn't helping him. Of the 13 players on the Israeli roster, Pnini has the worst figures, scoring just 31 percent from the field.
