Coincidentally all visitors won their games.

The game between second ranked GreenTops Netanya (5-2) and twelfth ranked Galil Gilboa (1-6) was the most important one in the last round on Monday night. GreenTops Netanya was defeated by Galil Gilboa in a tough game in Netanya 74-83. The guests trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 13-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 83-74. Galil Gilboa forced 23 GreenTops Netanya turnovers. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for forward Mitchell Watt (208-89, college: Buffalo) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds. Guard Jamar Smith (191-87, college: S.Indiana, agency: KMG Sports Management) helped adding 20 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Galil Gilboa's coach Lior Lubin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side swingman Deron Washington (201-85, college: Virginia Tech) responded with 22 points and 8 rebounds. Galil Gilboa maintains twelfth place with 1-6 record. GreenTops Netanya at the other side keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with Maccabi Haifa. Galil Gilboa are looking forward to face higher ranked Maccabi Ashdod (#10) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. GreenTops Netanya will play against Hapoel Eilat (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
Ironi Ashkelon has finally registered their first victory this season after five consecutive loses. The win is especially important as it came on the road game in Jerusalem, where they defeated Hapoel J-M (3-4) 91-85. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Marcus Moore (198-80, college: Washington St., agency: Laszlo Vinko Group) who led the winners and scored 22 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Marcus Dove accounted for 18 points and 7 rebounds. Ironi Ashkelon's coach Adi Azulay allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American forward Craig Smith (201-83, college: Boston Coll.) came up with 28 points and 6 rebounds (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!) for Hapoel J-M in the defeat. Ironi Ashkelon (1-5) left bottom position moving up to tenth place, which they share with Maccabi Ashdod. Hapoel J-M at the other side keeps the seventh position with four games lost. They share it with Hapoel Holon. Ironi Ashkelon will play against higher ranked Hapoel Holon (#8) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hapoel J-M will play against Maccabi Rishon in Rishon Le-Zion and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Winner League top team - Maccabi T-A (6-1) had no problems winning another game on Sunday. This time they crushed eighth ranked Hapoel Holon (3-4) 100-72. David Logan fired 15 points for the winners. Maccabi T-A's coach David Blatt felt very confident that he used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Frank Hassell produced a double-double by scoring 26 points and 17 rebounds for lost side. Maccabi T-A have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 6-1 record. Hapoel Holon lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. They share it with Hapoel J-M. Maccabi T-A's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tel-Aviv Hapoel Tel-Aviv.
The game in Tel-Aviv was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Hapoel Eilat (4-2) played at the court of 5th ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (4-2). Hapoel Eilat managed to secure a 4-point victory 68-64. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Worth to mention a great performance of Eli Holman who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 12 points and 18 rebounds. Hapoel Tel-Aviv's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Hapoel Eilat have a solid series of three victories in a row. Despite that victory Hapoel Eilat went down to fourth position due to points difference, which they share with Hapoel T-A and Maccabi Rishon. Hapoel Eilat's next round opponent will be higher ranked GreenTops Netanya (#3) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hapoel Tel-Aviv's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tel-Aviv to the arena Maccabi T-A.

Maccabi Ashdod - Maccabi Haifa 74-80

Very expected game when 10th ranked Maccabi Ashdod (1-5) was defeated at home by third ranked Maccabi Haifa (5-2) 80-74. It looked good early as Maccabi Ashdod took an 2-point lead at the end of first quarter.

Bnei Hasharon - Maccabi Rishon 76-91

Rather predictable result in Hod Hasharon where sixth ranked Maccabi Rishon (4-2) defeated 9th ranked Bnei Hasharon (2-4) 91-76. The game was mostly controlled by Maccabi Rishon. Bnei Hasharon was better in third quarter 20-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Maccabi Rishon players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists.
