Winner League round 10 most important game was a victory of GreenTops Netanya over one of their biggest challengers Hapoel Tel-Aviv 68-61 on Sunday night. The guests trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 68-61. GreenTops Netanya dominated on the defensive end, holding Hapoel Tel-Aviv to just 7 points in third quarter. 31 personal fouls committed by Hapoel Tel-Aviv helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Marco Killingsworth (203-82, college: Indiana, agency: Avi Zilberman) who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). The other American import guard Ramel Bradley (188-85) contributed with 13 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. The former international Matan Naor (195-80) replied with 14 points for Hapoel Tel-Aviv. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. GreenTops Netanya (6-4) moved-up to fourth place. Newly promoted Hapoel Tel-Aviv dropped to the fifth position with five games lost. They share it with Hapoel J-M and Maccabi Rishon. GreenTops Netanya are looking forward to face Hapoel Holon (#10) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Hapoel Tel-Aviv will play against Maccabi Ashdod (#12) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Hapoel Eilat (7-3) against tenth ranked Bnei Hasharon (4-6) on Sunday night. Host Hapoel Eilat was defeated by Bnei Hasharon in a tough game in Eilat 77-83. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hapoel Eilat. American players dominated the game. Forward Derrick Caracter (206-88, college: UTEP) had a double-double by scoring 26 points, 17 rebounds and 5 assists (on 12-of-14 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Jumaine Jones chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side power forward Eli Holman (208-89, college: Detroit Mercy) responded with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 13 rebounds. Hapoel Eilat's coach Oded Katash rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Bnei Hasharon moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Elizur Ashkelon. Newly promoted Hapoel Eilat keeps the second position with three games lost. They share it with Maccabi Haifa. Bnei Hasharon will play against league's leader Maccabi T-A in Tel-Aviv in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Hapoel Eilat will play on the road against Hapoel J-M in Jerusalem and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Maccabi Ashdod managed to get a second victory on Wednesday night. This time they won against seventh-ranked Maccabi Rishon in Rishon Le-Zion 84-75. Diamon Simpson notched a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 27 points and 15 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) by Julian Wright did not help to save the game for Maccabi Rishon. Maccabi Ashdod maintains twelfth position with 2-8 record. Maccabi Rishon lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fifth place with five games lost. They share the position with Hapoel T-A and Hapoel J-M. Maccabi Ashdod will meet at home higher ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#5) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Maccabi Rishon will play against Maccabi Haifa having rather not much hope for a victory.
Winner League top team - Maccabi T-A (9-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Maccabi Ashdod (2-8) in Tel-Aviv 104-72. Lior Eliyahu fired 21 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists (on 10-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winners. Maccabi T-A's coach David Blatt felt very confident that he used 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Maccabi T-A have an impressive seven-game winning streak.

Maccabi T-A's next round opponent will be Bnei Hasharon (#9) in Hod Hasharon and are hoping to win another game. Maccabi Ashdod will play at home against Hapoel Tel-Aviv.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Hapoel J-M (5-5) and Galil Gilboa (3-7), which took place in Rosh Pina. Higher ranked Hapoel J-M lost to eleventh ranked Galil Gilboa in a road game 78-87 on Monday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hapoel J-M. It was a very good performance for Jamar Smith who helped to win the game recording 21 points and 5 rebounds. Galil Gilboa's coach Lior Lubin used a ten-player rotation saving starting five for next games. Galil Gilboa moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Hapoel Holon. Loser Hapoel J-M keeps the fifth position with five games lost. Galil Gilboa will face higher ranked Ironi Ashkelon (#8) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Hapoel J-M will play against the league's second-placed Hapoel Eilat having rather not much hope for a victory.

Maccabi Haifa - Elizur Ashkelon 111-94

Very expected game when 7th ranked Ironi Ashkelon (4-6) lost on the road to third ranked Maccabi Haifa (7-3) 111-94 on Sunday. The game was mostly controlled by Maccabi Haifa. Ironi Ashkelon was better in third quarter 24-22. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Maccabi Haifa dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Ironi Ashkelon's 40 and made 22-of-29 free shots (75.9 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Ironi Ashkelon 38-25 including a 28-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. Maccabi Haifa looked well-organized offensively handing out 31 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Ironi Ashkelon's players. Quite impressive performance for American-Greek swingman Pat Calathes (208-85, college: St.Joseph's) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 27 points and 12 rebounds. American Donta Smith (201-83, college: SE Illinois JC) contributed with 17 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners.

Five Maccabi Haifa and four Ironi Ashkelon players scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to get some rest.

Hapoel Eilat - Bnei Hasharon 77-83

Very important is a home loss of second ranked Hapoel Eilat (7-3) against tenth ranked Bnei Hasharon (4-6) on Sunday night. Host Hapoel Eilat was defeated by Bnei Hasharon in a tough game in Eilat 77-83. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hapoel Eilat. Hapoel Eilat was ahead by 3 points at the halftime before a 43-34 second half run of Bnei Hasharon. Hapoel Eilat was plagued by 27 personal fouls down the stretch. American players dominated the game. Forward Derrick Caracter (206-88, college: UTEP) had a double-double by scoring 26 points, 17 rebounds and 5 assists (on 12-of-14 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and forward Jumaine Jones (203-79, college: Georgia) chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds during the contest.

Winner League round 10 most important game was a victory of GreenTops Netanya over one of their biggest challengers Hapoel Tel-Aviv 68-61 on Sunday night. The guests trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 68-61. GreenTops Netanya dominated on the defensive end, holding Hapoel Tel-Aviv to just 7 points in third quarter. 31 personal fouls committed by Hapoel Tel-Aviv helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.

Round 6
Elizur Ashkelon - Bnei Hasharon 94-70

Rather predictable result when seventh ranked Ironi Ashkelon (4-6) rolled over at home 10th ranked Bnei Hasharon (4-6) 94-70 on Thursday. The game without a history. Ironi Ashkelon led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 54.5 percentage. Quite impressive performance for American guard Marcus Moore (198-80, college: Washington St., agency: Laszlo Vinko Group) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 8 rebounds. Swingman Gur Porat (197-79) contributed with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American forward Jumaine Jones (203-79, college: Georgia) replied with 4 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists and American-Mexican swingman Romel Beck (201-82, college: UNLV, agency: Interperformances) added 17 points in the effort for Bnei Hasharon. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Ironi Ashkelon have a solid four-game winning streak. Despite that victory Ironi Ashkelon went down to eighth position due to points difference, which they share with defeated Bnei Hasharon. Ironi Ashkelon will face Galil Gilboa (#11) in Rosh Pina in the next round.

Maccabi Rishon - Maccabi Ashdod 75-84

Bottom-ranked Maccabi Ashdod managed to get a second victory on Wednesday night. This time they won against seventh-ranked Maccabi Rishon in Rishon Le-Zion 84-75. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 27-15. But Maccabi Rishon won third quarter 25-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American forward Diamon Simpson (201-87, college: St.Mary's, CA) notched a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the effort and the former international point guard Dror Hagag (178-78, agency: Avi Zilberman) supported him with 19 points and 4 assists. Five Maccabi Ashdod players scored in double figures. Even a double-double of 27 points and 15 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) by American forward Julian Wright (203-87, college: Kansas) did not help to save the game for Maccabi Rishon. His fellow American import point guard Willie Warren (193-89, college: Oklahoma, agency: Interperformances) added 23 points for lost side. Maccabi Ashdod maintains twelfth position with 2-8 record. Maccabi Rishon lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fifth place with five games lost. They share the position with Hapoel T-A and Hapoel J-M. Maccabi Ashdod will meet at home higher ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#5) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Maccabi Rishon will play against Maccabi Haifa having rather not much hope for a victory.
