Our basketball U18 team met in Berlin and completed three training sessions and two friendlies. Both games were won against Oberliga teams. The team consists of former U16 players who have already played for us in Budapest and have occasionally been supplemented with new players.
As a supporting program, the team attended an Alba Berlin Euro League game and, as a bonus, they went to an Israeli restaurant on Saturday evening.
