Hapoel K/S - Maccabi K/G 95-81

Very expected game when 13th ranked Maccabi K/G (3-13) was defeated on the road by ninth ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (6-10) 95-81. Hapoel Kfar Saba players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists. 26 personal fouls committed by Maccabi K/G helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.

Four Hapoel Kfar Saba players scored in double figures. Even a double-double of 22 points and 14 rebounds by American forward Lenny Daniel (203-87, college: CS Northridge) did not help to save the game for Maccabi K/G. His fellow American import swingman Muhammad El Amin (196-87, college: Stony Brook, agency: Two Points) added 20 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists for lost side. Hapoel Kfar Saba maintains ninth position with 6-10 record, which they share with Elitzur Ramla. Maccabi K/G lost seventh consecutive game.
