Winner League is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 11 rounds left. There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

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. Hapoel Eilat trailed by 11 points at halftime and as many as 13 after three quarters before a 28-21 last quarter charge cut the deficit to 79-85 at the end of the game. Hapoel J-M forced 23 Hapoel Eilat turnovers. 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. The former international Raviv Limonad (191-84) helped adding 19 points. American guard Scotty Hopson (200-89, college: Tennessee) responded with 23 points and 5 rebounds. Hapoel J-M maintains fifth place with 6-5 record. Newly promoted Hapoel Eilat keeps the third position with four games lost. They share it with Netanya. Hapoel J-M are looking forward to face league's leader Maccabi T-A in Tel-Aviv in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Bottom-ranked Maccabi Ashdod managed to get a third victory. This time they won against fifth-ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv 72-67. Americans were the main players on the court.

Jamie Skeen accounted for 16 points and 9 rebounds. Curtis Kelly (205-88, college: Kansas St.) came up with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 4 blocks for Hapoel Tel-Aviv in the defeat. Maccabi Ashdod (3-8) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Galil Gilboa and Hapoel Holon. Hapoel Tel-Aviv lost third consecutive game.

Romel Beck produced 32 points (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field) for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Maccabi T-A have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 10-1 record. Bnei Hasharon at the other side keeps the ninth position with seven games lost. Maccabi T-A will meet Hapoel J-M (#5) in the next round.

Tenth-ranked Hapoel Holon (3-8) gave a tough game to fourth ranked GreenTops Netanya (7-4) on Sunday. GreenTops Netanya managed to secure only two-point victory 72-70. However their fans expected much easier game. Americans were the main players on the court also this time.
