Beer Yaakov will play against Hod Hasharon (#5) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
The game in Ramat Gan was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Hod Hasharon (11-4) played at the court of 7th ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (8-7). Hod Hasharon defeated Ironi Ramat Gan 92-82. It was an exceptional evening for Nigerian power forward Chukwudinma Odiakosa (203-85, college: Illinois St., agency: N.E.T.) who led the winners and scored 19 points and 8 rebounds. Eran Asante Asare accounted for 16 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Itay Grinboim (193-85, agency: Avi Zilberman) came up with 19 points and 6 assists for Ironi Ramat Gan in the defeat. Hod Hasharon moved-up to third place, which they share with Elitzur Yavne and Hapoel Afula. Ironi Ramat Gan lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with seven games lost. Hod Hasharon will play against Beer Yaakov (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ironi Ramat Gan will play against the league's second-placed Ironi Nahariya and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Fourth ranked Elitzur Yavne (11-4) beat at home 9th ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (5-10) by 12 points 98-86, which is the biggest margin this round on Tuesday night. The best player for the winners was Brian Laing who scored 28 points and 7 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Adam McCoy who recorded 35 points (!!!).

Hapoel Kfar Saba will play against Maccabi K/G in Kiryat Gat and hope to secure a win.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 15: Hapoel Kazrin won against Kiryat Tivon on the opponent's court 87-83. Bottom-ranked Maccabi K/B unfortunately lost to Elitzur Ramla in a home game 79-87. Ironi K-A recorded a loss to Hapoel Afula on the road 76-83.

The most impressive stats of the last round was 24 points and 12 rebounds by Johndre Jefferson of Elitzur Ramla.


Kiryat Tivon - Hapoel Kazrin 83-87

Very expected game when 12th ranked Kiryat Tivon (4-11) was defeated at home by eighth ranked Hapoel Kazrin (7-8) 87-83 on Tuesday. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 30-24 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Hapoel Kazrin had a 34-19 advantage in offensive rebounds.

Five Hapoel Kazrin and four Kiryat Tivon players scored in double figures. Newly promoted Hapoel Kazrin maintains eighth place with 7-8 record.
