Winner League Round 3 review - Oct 29, 2012


POSTED BY:

After 3 rounds played we can already see who rules in the Winner League and who belongs to weaker ones.

There was a change at the Winner League leadership position after last games. Round 3 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Maccabi Haifa (2-1). They were defeated by sixth ranked Hapoel Eilat (2-1) 80-62 on Sunday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Maccabi Haifa. The game was mostly controlled by Hapoel Eilat. Maccabi Haifa managed to win fourth quarter 22-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for guard Scotty Hopson (200-89, college: Tennessee) who led his team to a victory scoring 19 points and 6 rebounds. Guard Austin Freeman (190-89, college: Georgetown) helped adding 16 points and 6 assists. The best for the losing side was Donta Smith (201-83, college: SE Illinois JC) with 15 points and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hapoel Eilat moved-up to third place, which they share with 5 other teams including defeated Maccabi Haifa. Maccabi Haifa will play next round against Maccabi T-A trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Hapoel Eilat will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Maccabi T-A (2-1) in Tel-Aviv. Hosts were defeated by Maccabi Rishon (3-0) 81-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Maccabi T-A. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 2-0 record before this meeting. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Julian Wright (203-87, college: Kansas) who led the winners and scored 22 points and 9 rebounds. Adrian Uter accounted for 22 points and 9 rebounds. American center Shawn James (207-83, college: Northeastern, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) came up with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 blocks for Maccabi T-A in the defeat. Maccabi T-A's coach David Blatt rotated eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Maccabi Rishon have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Netanya. Defending champion Maccabi T-A keeps the third place with one game lost. They share the position with 5 other teams. Maccabi Rishon will play against Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#6) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Maccabi T-A will play against Maccabi Haifa and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Netanya between GreenTops Netanya and Hapoel J-M. Leader GreenTops Netanya (3-0) got a very close home victory over bottom-ranked Hapoel J-M (0-3). GreenTops Netanya managed to escape with a 3-point win 77-74 on Monday evening. Host team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. The best player for the winners was Marco Killingsworth who scored 20 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). At the other side the best for losing team was Courtney Fells who recorded 16 points and 5 assists. GreenTops Netanya have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Maccabi Rishon. Hapoel J-M at the other side still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. GreenTops Netanya will meet Ironi Ashkelon (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hapoel J-M will play against Maccabi Ashdod and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Winner League top team - Maccabi Haifa (2-1) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat seventh ranked Hapoel Holon (2-1) 63-53. It was a good game for Donta Smith who led his team to a victory with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. Maccabi Haifa's coach Brad Greenberg allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Despite that victory Maccabi Haifa went down to third position due to points difference, which they share with 5 other teams including defeated Hapoel Holon. Maccabi Haifa's next round opponent will be Maccabi T-A (#5) in Tel-Aviv. Hapoel Holon will play on the road against Galil Gilboa.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 3: Bnei Hasharon won against Maccabi Ashdod on the opponent's court 88-74. Winless Galil Gilboa unfortunately lost to Hapoel Holon in a home game 88-92. Winless Elizur Ashkelon recorded a loss to Hapoel T-A on the road 70-78.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 25 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists by Jumaine Jones of Bnei Hasharon.


Maccabi Ashdod - Bnei Hasharon 74-88

Rather expected game when bottom-ranked Maccabi Ashdod (0-3) was defeated at home by eighth ranked Bnei Hasharon (2-1) 88-74. The game was mostly controlled by Bnei Hasharon. Maccabi Ashdod was better in second period 22-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a good game for American forward Jumaine Jones (203-79, college: Georgia) who led his team to a victory with 25 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. American-Mexican swingman Romel Beck (201-82, college: UNLV, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 22 points for the winners. Bnei Hasharon's coach Ariel Beit-Halamy allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American forward Diamon Simpson (201-87, college: St.Mary's, CA) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 12 rebounds and the former international point guard Dror Hagag (178-78, agency: Avi Zilberman) added 17 points and 4 assists in the effort for Maccabi Ashdod. Five Bnei Hasharon and four Maccabi Ashdod players scored in double figures. Bnei Hasharon moved-up to third place, which they share with 5 other teams. Maccabi Ashdod at the other side still closes the standings with three games lost. Bnei Hasharon's next round opponent will be Hapoel Holon (#8) on the road which should be theoretically an easy game. Maccabi Ashdod will play against Hapoel J-M (#11) in Jerusalem and looks forward to get finally their first victory.
