Very important is a road loss of second ranked Hapoel Afula (10-4) against twelfth ranked Elitzur Ramla (4-10) on Wednesday night. Visiting Hapoel Afula was defeated by Elitzur Ramla in a tough game in Ramla 68-72. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hapoel Afula. American players dominated the game.

Hapoel Kazrin - Maccabi K/B 114-108

Not a big story in a game when 14th ranked Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (1-13) lost on the road to ninth ranked Hapoel Kazrin (6-8) 114-108 on Wednesday.
