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. Jamaican power forward Vanessa Gidden (193-85, college: Hofstra, agency: Ronsport) produced a double-double by scoring 20 points and 16 rebounds for the guests. Galil Elion moved-up to second place. Hap.Petah Tikva at the other side dropped to the third position with two games lost.

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. Bat-El Lazmi contributed with 15 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. 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. Hapoel Rishon Le-Zion will play against Elitzur Ramla (#4) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
