The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds.

There was a change at the D1 leadership position after last games. Round 18 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Maccabi Ashdod (12-4). They were edged by third ranked Ramat Hasharon (12-5) 77-75 on Monday night. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 25-14. But Maccabi Ashdod won second period 23-21. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Ramat Hasharon won last quarter 16-15. They made 19-of-23 free shots (82.6 percent) during the game. Americans were the main players on the court. Forward Alysha Clark (178-87, college: Middle Tenn.St.) scored 24 points and 6 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and guard Jia Perkins (173-82, college: Texas Tech, agency: Merit Sports) chipped in 16 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was Plenette Pierson (188-81, college: Texas Tech) with 26 points and 7 rebounds. Ramat Hasharon maintains third position with 12-5 record behind leader Elitzur Ramla. Maccabi Ashdod at the other side dropped to the second place with four games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Elitzur Ramla. Maccabi Ashdod will play next round against Elitzur Holon trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Ramat Hasharon will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
Important game to mention about took place in Kiryat Ono. Seventh ranked Bnot Hasharon (8-9) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 5th ranked B.C. Habikaa (10-6) 86-84 on Monday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of B.C. Habikaa. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Forward Kerri Gardin (186-84, college: Virginia Tech) notched a double-double by scoring 21 points and 15 rebounds to lead the effort and Karima Christmas supported her with 28 points and 8 rebounds. Even 22 points and 8 assists by guard Cetera Degraffenreid (167-88, college: N.Carolina) did not help to save the game for B.C. Habikaa. Bnot Hasharon moved-up to sixth place. Newly promoted B.C. Habikaa keeps the fifth position with six games lost. Bnot Hasharon will play against Hapoel Rishon Le-Zion (#9) at home in the next round. B.C. Habikaa will play against the league's leader Elitzur Ramla (#1) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
11th ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (2-14) was defeated at home by second ranked Elitzur Ramla (13-4) with the biggest margin this round 80-69 on Monday night. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was Amber Harris who had a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Sherill Baker who recorded 22 points and 4 assists. Elitzur Ramla have a solid three-game winning streak.

Maccabi R.Hen - Hap.Petah Tikva 59-53

Rather expected game when 6th ranked Hap.Petah Tikva (7-9) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Maccabi Ramat Hen (11-5) 59-53 on Monday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Hap.Petah Tikva won third quarter 16-13. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.

Elitzur Holon - Elitzur Netanya 76-85

The game between closely ranked teams ended with ninth ranked Elitzur Netanya's (6-10) road victory over 10th ranked Elitzur Holon (3-14) 85-76 on Monday. The guests trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 10-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 85-76.

They keep the tenth position with 14 games lost. Elitzur Netanya will meet at home higher ranked Maccabi Ramat Hen (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Elitzur Holon will play against the league's second-placed Maccabi Ashdod (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
