The game between second ranked Hapoel Afula (8-3) and thirteenth ranked Kiryat Tivon (2-9) was the most important one in the last round on Tuesday night. Hapoel Afula was defeated by Kiryat Tivon in a tough game in Kiryat Tivon 97-102. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Hapoel Afula. Kiryat Tivon forced 21 Hapoel Afula turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. It was a great evening for swingman Tomer Ber-Aven (196-92) who led his team to a victory with a triple-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. American forward Taylor Darby (203, college: Pepperdine) helped adding 25 points and 10 rebounds. American forward Allen Durham (198-88, college: Grace Bible) responded with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 11 rebounds. Kiryat Tivon maintains thirteenth place with 2-9 record. Hapoel Afula at the other side keeps the second position with three games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Kiryat Tivon are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (#14) on the road in the next round. Hapoel Afula will play against the league's second-placed Elitzur Yavne (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Nes Ziyona. First ranked host Ironi Nes-Ziona (10-1) smashed 3rd placed Hod Hasharon (8-3) 89-68. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hod Hasharon. It was an exceptional evening for American swingman Bilal Benn (196-86, college: Niagara) who led the winners and scored 23 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Tal Michael Dunne accounted for 21 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Nigerian power forward Chukwudinma Odiakosa (203-85, college: Illinois St., agency: N.E.T.) came up with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 15 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for Hod Hasharon in the defeat. 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 Nes-Ziona have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. They maintain first place with 10-1 record. Hod Hasharon at the other side dropped to the second position with three games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Ironi Nes-Ziona will play against Ironi Nahariya (#5) on the road in the next round. Hod Hasharon will play against Hapoel Kfar Saba and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Kiryat Ata was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Ironi Nahariya (8-3) played at the court of 6th ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (6-5). Ironi Nahariya managed to secure a 7-point victory 79-72 on Tuesday. The best player for the winners was Aviram Zelkovits who scored 27 points and 8 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). Chris Watson produced a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds for the hosts. The victory was the third consecutive win for Ironi Nahariya. They moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. Ironi Kiryat Ata lost their fourth game in a row. They dropped to the seventh position with five games lost. Ironi Nahariya will meet at home league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Ironi Kiryat Ata will play against Maccabi K/G (#12) in Kiryat Gat and hope to secure a win.
Fourth ranked Elitzur Yavne (8-3) crushed at home 10th ranked Beer Yaakov (4-7) by 28 points 94-66, which is the biggest margin this round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Beer Yaakov. Monta McGhee orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Elitzur Yavne's coach felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Elitzur Yavne moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. Beer Yaakov at the other side dropped to the ninth position with seven games lost. Elitzur Yavne's next round opponent will be Hapoel Afula (#3) on the road, which may be the game of the day. Beer Yaakov will play against Hapoel Kazrin (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 11: Ironi Ramat Gan won against Hapoel Kazrin on the opponent's court 102-86. Elitzur Ramla outscored Maccabi K/G in a home game 80-52. Hapoel K/S managed to beat Maccabi K/B on the road 90-83.


Ironi K-A - Ironi Nahariya 72-79

The game in Kiryat Ata was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Ironi Nahariya (8-3) played at the court of 6th ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (6-5). Ironi Nahariya managed to secure a 7-point victory 79-72 on Tuesday. Ironi Kiryat Ata was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. The best player for the winners was guard Aviram Zelkovits (193-89) who scored 27 points and 8 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St., agency: Global Sports Plaza) chipped in a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds. The former international power forward Chris Watson (200-75, college: Niagara) produced a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds and American point guard Darrin Govens (185-88, college: St.Joseph's) added 15 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists respectively for the hosts. The victory was the third consecutive win for Ironi Nahariya. They moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. Ironi Kiryat Ata lost their fourth game in a row. They dropped to the seventh position with five games lost. Ironi Nahariya will meet at home league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

Hapoel Kazrin - Ironi Ramat Gan 86-102

Rather expected game when 9th ranked Hapoel Kazrin (4-7) was defeated at home by seventh ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (7-4) 102-86. They made 16-of-18 charity shots (88.9 percent) during the game. Ironi Ramat Gan shot the lights out from three nailing 12 long-distance shots on high 52.2 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. Guard Itay Grinboim (193-85, agency: Avi Zilberman) orchestrated the victory by scoring 28 points and 7 assists (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). The former international power forward Amit Tamir (208-79, college: California) contributed with 24 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Five Ironi Ramat Gan players scored in double figures. Naturalized Russian power forward Anton Kazarnovski (205-85) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 12 rebounds and American guard Lawrence Westbrook (183-88, college: Minnesota) added 21 points in the effort for Hapoel Kazrin. Ironi Ramat Gan moved-up to sixth place. Newly promoted Hapoel Kazrin keeps the ninth position with seven games lost. Ironi Ramat Gan's next round opponent will be Elitzur Ramla (#11) at home which should be theoretically an easy game. Hapoel Kazrin will play against Beer Yaakov and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Elitzur Ramla - Maccabi K/G 80-52

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams when twelfth ranked Elitzur Ramla (3-8) smashed at home 11th ranked Maccabi K/G (3-8) 80-52. They outrebounded Maccabi K/G 41-28 including a 31-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. Elitzur Ramla players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. They brought some defensive toughness making 7 blocks. Americans were the main players on the court. Guard Vernon Teel (193-87, college: Loyola Mary, agency: FCM) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals. Forward Johndre Jefferson (207-88, college: S.Carolina) contributed with a double-double by scoring 18 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) for the winners. Four Elitzur Ramla players scored in double figures. Forward Lenny Daniel (203-87, college: CS Northridge) answered with 18 points and 8 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) and swingman Akeem Wright (200-84, college: Kansas St.) added 20 points and 6 rebounds in the effort for Maccabi K/G. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Elitzur Ramla moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with defeated Maccabi K/G. Elitzur Ramla's next round opponent will be higher ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (#6) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Maccabi K/B - Hapoel K/S 83-90

Not a big story in a game when 14th ranked Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (1-10) was defeated at home by eighth ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (5-6) 90-83.
