Maccabi K/G - Ironi K-A 78-93

Macc.B.Yaakov - Hapoel Kazrin 80-91

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked Hapoel Kazrin and 10th ranked Beer Yaakov had identical 4-7 record. But Beer Yaakov was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Kazrin 91-80 on Tuesday night. The guests trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 26-10 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Lawrence Westbrook (183-88, college: Minnesota) who helped to win the game recording 26 points and 5 assists and the other American import forward Gary Johnson (198-88, college: Texas) who added 14 points and 10 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was guard Inan Iram (194-88, agency: Avi Zilberman) with 25 points and 8 rebounds and American swingman Brian Laing (195-85, college: Seton Hall, agency: I.D.S. Law) scored 16 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hapoel Kazrin (5-7) moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Hapoel K/S. Loser Beer Yaakov keeps the tenth position with eight games lost. Hapoel Kazrin will meet at home league's second-placed Hapoel Afula in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Beer Yaakov will play against Elitzur Ramla (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Ironi Ramat Gan - Elitzur Ramla 84-69

Very predictable result when sixth ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (8-4) beat at home 11th ranked Elitzur Ramla (3-9) 84-69 on Tuesday. The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 9-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 84-69.

Ironi Ramat Gan moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Elitzur Yavne. Loser Elitzur Ramla keeps the eleventh position with nine games lost. They share it with Maccabi K/G and Kiryat Tivon. Ironi Ramat Gan will meet Ironi Kiryat Ata (#7) on the road in the next round. Elitzur Ramla will play against Beer Yaakov (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Hapoel K/S - Hod Hasharon 68-80

The game in Kfar Saba was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Hod Hasharon (9-3) played at the court of 8th ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (5-7). Hod Hasharon defeated Hapoel Kfar Saba 80-68 on Tuesday. The game was mostly controlled by Hod Hasharon. Hapoel Kfar Saba managed to win second period 18-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Hod Hasharon looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard B.A. Walker (188-84, college: VCU, agency: Pro One Sports) who helped to win the game recording 30 points and Nigerian power forward Chukwudinma Odiakosa (203-85, college: Illinois St., agency: N.E.T.) who added 13 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was Harel Karni (190-85) with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds and forward Eitan Rotemberg (197-91) scored 16 points and 6 rebounds. Four Hapoel Kfar Saba players scored in double figures. Hod Hasharon moved-up to second place, which they share with Ironi Nahariya and Hapoel Afula.
