Hapoel Holon - Galil Gilboa 76-79

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 10th ranked Hapoel Holon (5-9) was edged at home by eleventh ranked Galil Gilboa (5-9) 79-76 on Sunday. Hapoel Holon was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Galil Gilboa dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Hapoel Holon's 32. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Galil Gilboa made 7 blocks. American guard Rakim Sanders (193-89, college: Fairfield) scored 24 points to lead the charge for the winners and the former international Dagan Yavzuri (193-85) chipped in 19 points during the contest. American guard Jerome Dyson (191-87, college: Connecticut) responded with 26 points and his fellow American import forward Lawrence Hill (203-87, college: Stanford) produced a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds. Galil Gilboa moved-up to ninth place, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Hapoel Holon. Galil Gilboa will face league's second-placed Hapoel Eilat on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
Top scorers:
Hapoel Holon: J.Dyson 26+1reb+3ast, D.Waters 19+5ast, L.Hill 14+10reb+2ast, F.Hassell 9+7reb, Z.Rosen 6+1reb, S.Daniel 2+5reb+1ast
