Nate Miller
National League is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 13 rounds left. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

National League round 13 most important game was a victory of Ironi Nahariya over 4th placed Hod Hasharon 84-76 on Tuesday night. The game without a history. Ironi Nahariya led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 25-of-33 free shots (75.8 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Nate Miller (193-87, college: Bowling Green, agency: KMG Sports Management) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals. American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St., agency: Global Sports Plaza) contributed with 19 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Nigerian power forward Chukwudinma Odiakosa (203-85, college: Illinois St., agency: N.E.T.) answered with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds for Hod Hasharon. Ironi Nahariya (10-3) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Hapoel Afula. Hod Hasharon at the other side keeps the fourth position with four games lost. They share it with Elitzur Yavne. Ironi Nahariya is looking forward to face Hapoel Kfar Saba (#8) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Hod Hasharon will play against Maccabi K/G (#13) in Kiryat Gat and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
National League top team - Ironi Nes-Ziona (11-2) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed thirteenth ranked Maccabi K/G (3-10) in Nes Ziyona 97-61. American forward Gabe Blair (203-87, college: Wichita St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 13 rebounds for the winners and Bilal Benn chipped in 19 points and 5 assists. Ironi Nes-Ziona's coach felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American forward Lenny Daniel (203-87, college: CS Northridge) responded with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Ironi Nes-Ziona maintains first place with 11-2 record. Maccabi K/G lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted team dropped to the twelfth position with ten games lost. They share it with Elitzur Ramla. Ironi Nes-Ziona will play against Ironi Ramat Gan (#7) at home in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Maccabi K/G will play against Hod Hasharon (#5) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Kiryat Ata was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (8-5) played at the court of seventh ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (8-5). Ironi Kiryat Ata managed to secure a 6-point victory 68-62 on Tuesday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Ironi Ramat Gan. Ivory Clark nailed 19 points and 7 rebounds for the winning side. Amit Tamir came up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds for Ironi Ramat Gan in the defeat. Ironi Kiryat Ata moved-up to sixth place, which they share with defeated Ironi Ramat Gan. Ironi Kiryat Ata will meet at home Beer Yaakov (#10) in the next round. Ironi Ramat Gan will play against the league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona (#1) in Nes Ziyona and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Ramla. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 11th ranked Elitzur Ramla (3-10) to tenth ranked Beer Yaakov (5-8) 80-77 on Tuesday evening. American players dominated the game. Jermaine Hall fired a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Beer Yaakov's coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Beer Yaakov moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Hapoel K/S and Hapoel Kazrin. Elitzur Ramla at the other side dropped to the twelfth position with ten games lost. Beer Yaakov's next round opponent will be higher ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (#6) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Elitzur Ramla will play against the league's second-placed Hapoel Afula (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Hapoel Kfar Saba (5-8) and Kiryat Tivon (4-9), which took place in Kiryat Tivon. Higher ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba lost to twelfth ranked Kiryat Tivon in a road game 78-88 on Tuesday. It was a very good performance for Greg Murray who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 29 points and 11 rebounds. Kiryat Tivon's coach used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the third consecutive win for Kiryat Tivon. They moved-up to eleventh place. Loser Hapoel Kfar Saba keeps the eighth position with eight games lost. Kiryat Tivon will face higher ranked Elitzur Yavne (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

In the last two games of round 13 Hapoel Afula smashed Hapoel Kazrin on the road 95-70. Elitzur Yavne destroyed Maccabi K/B on its own court 89-67.
The most impressive performance of 13th round was 30 points and 14 rebounds by Adam Constantine of Hapoel K/S.

But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Hapoel Kfar Saba 45-33 including 30 on the defensive glass. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Kiryat Tivon made 7 blocks. It was a very good performance for American forward Greg Murray (195-89, college: Point Loma) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 29 points and 11 rebounds. His fellow American import forward Taylor Darby (203, college: Pepperdine) contributed with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Four Kiryat Tivon players scored in double figures. Kiryat Tivon's coach used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. American forward Adam Constantine (206-88, college: Elon) answered with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 14 rebounds (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field) and guard Raz Elbaz (187-86) added 9 points and 4 assists in the effort for Hapoel Kfar Saba.
