Game Center, Semifinals, Game 3: Valencia romps to set up all-Spanish EuroCup Finals

Valencia Basket 2-1 Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem

Valencia Basket advanced to the EuroCup Finals for the fifth time in club history by routing Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem 90-75 in front of an outstanding basketball atmosphere at a sold-out Fuente De San Luis on Wednesday. Valencia will face Unicaja Malaga in the second all-Spanish final in competition history (Joventut Badalona and Akasvayu Girona fought for the EuroCup trophy in 2008). Fernando San Emeterio led six Valencia scorers in double figures with 15 points. Curtis Jerrells led Jerusalem with 19 points. Valencia dominated the rebounds 15-7 in an excellent first half, in which it made 15-of-24 two-point shots (62.5%), and forced the visitors into 11 turnovers to take a 44-32 margin at the break. Valencia enjoyed a 31-point third quarter that was close to perfection - 9-of-10 two-point shooting, 3-of-3 on three-pointers, 4-of-4 free throws – to lead 75-50 after 30 minutes and never looked back.
