There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most exciting game of round 16 in the Winner League took place in Rishon Le-Zion. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 6th ranked Maccabi Rishon (7-9) to fifth ranked GreenTops Netanya (9-7) 75-73 on Sunday evening. The guests trailed by 17 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 2 points. The game was dominated by American players. Power forward Raymar Morgan (202-88, college: Michigan St.) fired 23 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Power forward Marco Killingsworth (203-82, college: Indiana, agency: Avi Zilberman) chipped in 15 points and 10 rebounds. Forward Julian Wright (203-87, college: Kansas) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 15 rebounds for lost side. GreenTops Netanya moved-up to third place, which they share with Hapoel J-M and Maccabi Haifa. Maccabi Rishon at the other side keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. GreenTops Netanya is looking forward to face Maccabi Haifa (#4) at home in the next round. Maccabi Rishon will play against Maccabi Ashdod and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Jerusalem. Fifth ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (9-7) saved a 3-point victory at home edging 6th ranked Bnei Hasharon (7-9) 70-67 on Monday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international point guard Meir Tapiro (192-75, agency: Avi Zilberman) who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Elishay Kadir contributed with 15 points and 8 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) for the winners. American forward Jumaine Jones (203-79, college: Georgia) replied with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds for Bnei Hasharon. Hapoel Jerusalem moved-up to third place, which they share with Netanya and Maccabi Haifa. Bnei Hasharon at the other side keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Hapoel Jerusalem will play against Hapoel Holon (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Bnei Hasharon will play against Ironi Ashkelon (#11) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Hapoel Eilat (10-6) against twelfth ranked Hapoel Holon (6-10) on Sunday night. Visiting Hapoel Eilat was defeated by Hapoel Holon in Holon 74-63. Worth to mention a great performance of Frank Hassell who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points, 17 rebounds and 5 blocks. At the losing side Oriya Mizrahi responded with 19 points and 4 assists. Hapoel Holon moved-up to tenth place. Newly promoted Hapoel Eilat keeps the second position with six games lost. Hapoel Holon will meet higher ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (#3) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Hapoel Eilat will play against the league's leader Maccabi T-A having rather not much hope for a victory.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Maccabi Haifa (9-7) against ninth ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (7-9) on Sunday night. Host Maccabi Haifa was edged by Hapoel Tel-Aviv in a tough game in Haifa 77-78. The winners were led by Demontez Stitt who scored that evening 26 points and 5 rebounds. Hapoel Tel-Aviv moved-up to sixth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Maccabi Haifa at the other side keeps the third position with seven games lost. Hapoel Tel-Aviv's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Galil Gilboa (#12) in Rosh Pina where they are favorite. Maccabi Haifa will play on the road against GreenTops Netanya (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Maccabi T-A delivered the fifteenth victory on Sunday night. This time they crushed 11th ranked Galil Gilboa (5-11) 91-56 in Rosh Pina. Niklas Caner-Medley fired 19 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Maccabi T-A (15-1) have an impressive 13-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position. Loser Galil Gilboa dropped to the bottom place with 11 games lost. Maccabi T-A will face league's second-placed Hapoel Eilat at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Galil Gilboa will play against Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#9).

In the last game of round 16 Maccabi Ashdod crushed Elizur Ashkelon in a road game 110-83.
