The game has been subject to controversy over the last few weeks
The Latvian capital of Riga is the venue this evening for one of the most contentious sporting events to ever involve an Irish side.
Ireland’s women are due to continue their EuroBasket qualifying campaign against Israel.
Build-up to the match was surrounded by calls to boycott, even before Israel player Nor Da’ar accused the Ireland players of being antisemitic.
The Israeli team had also posed for photos with members of the IDF, carrying assault weapons.
Basketball Ireland have described Da’ar’s comments as inflammatory.
Leixlip Liffey Celtics players Aine O'Connor and Sorcha Tiernan are in the squad, while Monasterevin's Claire Melia is unavailable.
Tip-off is scheduled for 4pm.
