The game between third ranked Hapoel Eilat (7-4) and fifth ranked Hapoel J-M (6-5) was the most important one in the last round on Monday night. Hapoel Eilat was defeated by Hapoel J-M in a tough game in Jerusalem 79-85.

It was a great evening for American-Georgian point guard Jacob Pullen (185-89, college: Kansas St.) who led his team to a victory scoring 20 points and 6 assists.
