Winner League Round 20: GreenTops Netanya defeats leader Maccabi T-A - Mar 11, 2013

There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Winner League. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked Maccabi T-A (17-3) in Tel-Aviv on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by sixth ranked GreenTops Netanya (10-10) 76-70. GreenTops Netanya made 25-of-32 free shots (78.1 percent) during the game. 24 personal fouls committed by Maccabi T-A helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American power forward Marco Killingsworth (203-82, college: Indiana, agency: Avi Zilberman) orchestrated the victory by scoring 19 points and 8 rebounds. The other American import swingman Deron Washington (201-85, college: Virginia Tech) contributed with 14 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. International point guard Yogev Ohayon (187-87) replied with 11 points, 6 assists and 5 steals for Maccabi T-A. Maccabi T-A's coach David Blatt rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. GreenTops Netanya maintains sixth position with 10-10 record. Defending champion Maccabi T-A still keeps top place with three games lost. GreenTops Netanya are looking forward to face Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#8) at home in the next round. Maccabi T-A will play against Maccabi Ashdod (#7) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Hapoel Eilat (12-8) against eighth ranked Maccabi Ashdod (9-11) on Sunday night. Visiting Hapoel Eilat was defeated by Maccabi Ashdod in Ashdod 98-87. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hapoel Eilat. American players dominated the game. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Diamon Simpson (201-87, college: St.Mary's, CA) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points and 13 rebounds and Mardy Collins who added 13 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists during the contest. Forward Jerome Tillman (198-87, college: Ohio, agency: KMG Sports Management) responded with 18 points and 8 rebounds. Hapoel Eilat's coach Oded Katash tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Maccabi Ashdod moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Hapoel T-A. Newly promoted Hapoel Eilat dropped to the third position with eight games lost. Maccabi Ashdod will play against league's leader Maccabi T-A in Tel-Aviv in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Hapoel Eilat will play on the road against Bnei Hasharon in Hod Hasharon and hopes to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game for Maccabi Haifa (13-7) which hosted in Haifa 4th ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (11-9). Third ranked Maccabi Haifa managed to get a 7-point victory 91-84. The winners were led by Pat Calathes who had that evening a double-double by scoring 26 points and 12 rebounds. Even 24 points and 8 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) by Josh Duncan did not help to save the game for Hapoel Jerusalem. Maccabi Haifa have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place. Hapoel Jerusalem at the other side keeps the fourth position with nine games lost. They share it with Maccabi Rishon. Maccabi Haifa will meet bottom-ranked Ironi Ashkelon (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hapoel Jerusalem will play against Galil Gilboa (#10) in Rosh Pina and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Rosh Pina. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 8th ranked Bnei Hasharon (8-12) to eleventh ranked Galil Gilboa (8-12) 93-92 in the fight for the ninth place. The best player for the winners was Rakim Sanders who scored 31 points. Galil Gilboa moved-up to ninth place, which they share with defeated Bnei Hasharon. Bnei Hasharon lost third consecutive game. Galil Gilboa's next round opponent will be higher ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (#5) on the road and it may be quite challenging game.
Twelfth-ranked Ironi Ashkelon (5-15) was very close to win a game against fifth ranked Maccabi Rishon (11-9) in Rishon Le-Zion on Sunday. Maccabi Rishon managed to secure only two-point victory 98-96. However their fans expected much easier game. Adrian Uter orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points and 7 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Maccabi Rishon have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Hapoel J-M. Ironi Ashkelon lost ninth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with 15 games lost. Maccabi Rishon will face Hapoel Holon (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ironi Ashkelon will play against the league's second-placed Maccabi Haifa.

In the last game of round 20 Hapoel T-A beat Hapoel Holon on the road 76-73.
