Tenth-ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (7-13) made lots of trouble for second ranked Beer Yaakov (16-4) on Tuesday. The visitors from Beer Yaakov managed to secure only six-point victory 105-99. However their fans expected much easier game. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was Jermaine Hall who had a double-double by scoring 31 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists. Beer Yaakov maintains second position with 16-4 record behind leader Hapoel T-A. Ironi Kiryat Ata lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the tenth place with 13 games lost. Beer Yaakov will face league's leader Hapoel Tel-Aviv at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Ironi Kiryat Ata will play against Hapoel Afula (#6).

In the last two games of round 20 Hapoel K/S was defeated by Ironi Nahariya in a road game 81-71. Ironi Nes-Ziona beat Hapoel Afula at home 85-68. Lev Hasharon lost to Elitzur Ramla on the opponent's court 82-84. Hod Hasharon managed to outperform Ironi Ramat Gan in a home game 89-82. Hapoel Y/M was rolled over Elitzur Yavne on the road 92-57. Hapoel T-A crushed Kiryat Tivon on its own court 86-66.
The best stats of 20th round was 33 points (!!!), 13 rebounds and 7 assists by Tony Younger of Ironi K-A.


Ironi Nahariya - Hapoel K/S 81-71

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fourteenth ranked Ironi Nahariya and 12th ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba had identical 6-13 record. This time Ironi Nahariya used a home court advantage and beat the opponent from Kfar Saba 81-71 on Tuesday night. The game was mostly controlled by Ironi Nahariya. Hapoel Kfar Saba was better in third quarter 23-11. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Hapoel Kfar Saba 42-31 including 16 on the offensive glass. Hapoel Kfar Saba was plagued by 26 personal fouls down the stretch. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was forward Eric Traimel (201-88, college: N.Texas) who had a double-double by scoring 20 points and 14 rebounds. Swingman Marcus Ginyard (196-87, college: N.Carolina) chipped in 17 points and 6 rebounds. Four Ironi Nahariya players scored in double figures. Guard Errick McCollum (185-88, college: Goshen, agency: Gross Zeev ISA) produced 22 points and 5 rebounds and forward Marshall Moses (198-89, college: Oklahoma St.) added 12 points and 9 rebounds respectively for the guests. Hapoel Kfar Saba's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Ironi Nahariya (7-13) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Lev Hasharon and Ironi K-A. Hapoel Kfar Saba at the other side dropped to the thirteenth position with 14 games lost. Ironi Nahariya will face higher ranked Elitzur Yavne (#3) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Hapoel Kfar Saba will play against Kiryat Tivon (#4) in Kiryat Tivon.

Ironi Nes-Ziona - Hapoel Afula 85-68

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams in Nes Ziyona where seventh ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (10-10) defeated 6th ranked Hapoel Afula (10-10) 85-68 on Tuesday. The game without a history. Ironi Nes-Ziona led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Ironi Nes-Ziona forced 21 Hapoel Afula turnovers and outrebounded them 40-27 including 27 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists.

American swingman Bilal Benn (196-86, college: Niagara) chipped in a double-double by scoring 12 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Benn is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Five Ironi Nes-Ziona players scored in double figures. American forward Gregg Thondique (201-87, college: Virginia Union) produced a double-double by scoring 25 points and 12 rebounds and swingman Elad Eliyah (193-85) added 16 points (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) respectively for the guests.

Elitzur Ramla - Lev Hasharon 84-82

Rather expected game when 11th ranked Lev Hasharon (7-13) was edged on the road by ninth ranked Elitzur Ramla (9-11) 84-82 on Tuesday. The hosts trailed by 8 points after three quarters before their 24-14 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Lev Hasharon was plagued by 27 personal fouls down the stretch. The best player for the winners was American forward Ryan Bacon (200-88, college: St.Peter's, agency: Strategic Sports) who had a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds.

American forward Grady Reynolds (198-80, college: St.John's, agency: Strategic Sports) produced a double-double by scoring 21 points and 14 rebounds (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!) and guard Amit Sela (192-87, agency: Avi Zilberman) added 14 points and 8 rebounds respectively for the guests. Lev Hasharon's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Elitzur Ramla have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place. Lev Hasharon at the other side dropped to the tenth position with 13 games lost. Elitzur Ramla will face Ironi Ramat Gan (#9) on the road in the next round.

Hod Hasharon - Ironi Ramat Gan 89-82

Rather predictable result when fifth ranked Hod Hasharon (11-9) beat at home 8th ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (8-12) 89-82 on Tuesday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 28-20. But Ironi Ramat Gan won second period 22-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Hod Hasharon won last quarter 24-19. They also forced 20 Ironi Ramat Gan turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. The best player for the winners was Puerto Rican point guard Javier Gonzalez (182-89, college: N.Carolina St.) who had a double-double by scoring 19 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists. Naturalized Latvian swingman Gary Gandel (203-80) chipped in 24 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 steals. The former international power forward Amit Tamir (208-79, college: California) produced 27 points and 6 rebounds and guard Lior Rubinstein (192-83) added 11 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists respectively for the guests. Four Hod Hasharon and five Ironi Ramat Gan players scored in double figures. Hod Hasharon moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Kiryat Tivon. Ironi Ramat Gan at the other side dropped to the ninth position with 12 games lost. Hod Hasharon will face bottom-ranked Hapoel Yokneam/Megido (#14) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ironi Ramat Gan will play against Elitzur Ramla (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Elitzur Yavne - Hapoel Y/M 92-57

Not a big story in a game when 13th ranked Hapoel Yokneam/Megido (6-14) was outplayed on the road by third ranked Elitzur Yavne (15-5) 92-57 on Tuesday. The game without a history. Elitzur Yavne led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 18-of-19 free shots (94.7 percent) during the game. Elitzur Yavne forced 22 Hapoel Yokneam/Megido turnovers and outrebounded them 43-29 including 29 on the defensive glass. Elitzur Yavne looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. The best player for the winners was swingman Elad Hofman (192-85) who scored 19 points and 6 rebounds. American swingman Brian Laing (195-85, college: Seton Hall, agency: I.D.S. Law) chipped in a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds. Four Elitzur Yavne players scored in double figures. Forward Or Ida (202-90) produced 13 points and 7 rebounds and American power forward Rahshon Turner (201-75, college: Fair Dickinson, agency: Hart Sports Mngm) added 11 points and 6 rebounds respectively for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Elitzur Yavne have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 15-5 record having just two points less than leader Hapoel T-A. Hapoel Yokneam/Megido at the other side dropped to the bottom place with 14 games lost. Elitzur Yavne will face Ironi Nahariya (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hapoel Yokneam/Megido will play against Hod Hasharon (#5).
