The best player for the winners was American forward Adaora Elonu (185-90, college: Texas A&M, agency: Ronsport) who had a double-double by scoring 26 points and 12 rebounds. Her fellow American import point guard Sydney Carter (167-90, college: Texas A&M, agency: Ronsport) chipped in 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

Elitzur Holon can celebrate their first win this season after four consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Hapoel Rishon Le-Zion (0-4) 80-76. American forward Kerri Gardin (186-84, college: Virginia Tech, agency: Regeneracom Sports) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds.

American point guard Shey Peddy (170-88, college: Temple) answered with 24 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for Hapoel Rishon Le-Zion. Elitzur Holon (1-4) left bottom position moving up to eighth place. It was Hapoel Rishon Le-Zion's fourth loss in a row. They still closes the standings with four games lost. Elitzur Holon will play against higher ranked Ramat Hasharon (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
