Israeli power Maccabi Electra struggled today in Group F play in the Eurolegue Top 16 playoffs.

But you can’t blame Doron Perkins.

The 6-foot-2 Alaskan came off the bench to deliver another all-around performance, yet it wasn’t good enough to deny Turkish champion Efes Pilsen in a 63-56 loss on the road.

Perkins, of Bartlett High fame, nine points, six rebounds, four assists and one steal in just 25 minutes.

Maccabi Electra and Efes Pilsen split their two-game series and are tied for second out of four teams in Group F. The top two advance to the elite eight.
