Germain
Jordan
The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Hapoel B/S (13-5) in Beer Sheva on Tuesday night. Hosts were edged by twelfth ranked Galil Elion (7-11) 86-84. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Hapoel B/S. 26 personal fouls committed by Hapoel B/S helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Americans were the main players on the court. Power forward Germain Jordan (198-86, college: Dillard) had a double-double by scoring 31 points and 10 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and forward Cinmeon Bowers (201-93, college: Auburn) chipped in 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists during the contest. Galil Elion's coach Avishay Gordon used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was swingman Jason Williams (198-83, college: UTEP) with 19 points and 4 assists. Galil Elion moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Hap.Haifa. Hapoel B/S at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. Galil Elion is looking forward to face higher ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (#5) in Nes Ziyona in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Hapoel B/S will play on the road against Hapoel Afula (#10) and is hoping to win this game.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Raanana. Second-best host Maccabi Raanana (12-6) lost to third ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (12-6) 88-77. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Forward Terrence Watson (200-87, college: Ball St.) notched 30 points and 9 rebounds to lead the effort and Denzel Livingston supported him with 24 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Even 18 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 blocks by forward Samme Givens (198-89, college: Drexel) did not help to save the game for Maccabi Raanana. Hapoel Kfar Saba have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Hap.R/G Givat. and Maccabi Raanana. Hapoel Kfar Saba will play against Hasharon (#13) in Ramat Hasharon in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Maccabi Raanana will play on the road against Hapoel Migd.H. (#9) in Tarshicha and hopes to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game took place in Kiryat Ata where one of their biggest challengers Ironi Nes-Ziona (11-7) was upset on the court of ninth ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (10-8) 89-82 on Tuesday. The best player for the winners was Sir'Dominic Pointer who had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 10 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Tal Michael Dunne who recorded 22 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Ironi Kiryat Ata moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Macc.Rehovot. Loser Ironi Nes-Ziona dropped to the fifth position with seven games lost. Ironi Kiryat Ata will meet bottom-ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (#14) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ironi Nes-Ziona will play against Galil Elion (#12) and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the Winner League just one year after relegation.
Eleventh ranked Hapoel Afula (8-10) crushed at home 10th ranked Hap.Haifa (7-11) by 19 points 85-66, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a good game for Jalen Cannon who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 16 rebounds. Hap.Haifa's coach Shaked Shoham rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Hapoel Afula moved-up to tenth place. Hap.Haifa lost sixth consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the eleventh position with 11 games lost. Hapoel Afula's next round opponent will be league's leader Hapoel B/S in Beer Sheva and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Hap.Haifa will play at home against Maccabi Rehovot (#6) and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 18: bottom-ranked Ironi Ramat Gan lost to Ramat Hasharon on the opponent's court 72-78. Macc.Rehovot managed to outperform Maccabi H/H in a home game 84-80. Hapoel Migd.H. recorded a loss to Hap.R/G Givat. on the road 92-86.

Ramat Hasharon - Ironi Ramat Gan 78-72

The game between closely ranked teams ended with 14th ranked Ironi Ramat Gan's (2-16) road loss to thirteenth ranked Hasharon (4-14) 72-78. Hasharon forced 23 Ironi Ramat Gan turnovers. Strangely Ironi Ramat Gan outrebounded Hasharon 43-28 including a 34-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. It was a good game for Rom Cornelius (197-93) who led his team to a victory with 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. American Brian Asbury (201-86, college: Miami, FL) contributed with 15 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Naturalized American Jermaine Hall (196-80, college: Wagner) replied with 19 points and 8 rebounds and naturalized American Sean Labanowski (205-92) added 12 points and 12 rebounds in the effort for Ironi Ramat Gan. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hasharon maintains thirteenth position with 4-14 record. Ironi Ramat Gan lost eighth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 16 games lost. Hasharon's next round opponent will be higher ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (#3) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Ironi Ramat Gan will play against Ironi Kiryat Ata (#7) and hope to win that game.

Hapoel Kfar Saba made 18-of-22 charity shots (81.8 percent) during the game. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. Hapoel Kfar Saba brought some defensive toughness making 8 blocks. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Forward Terrence Watson (200-87, college: Ball St.) notched 30 points and 9 rebounds to lead the effort and guard Denzel Livingston (193-93, college: Incarnate Word) supported him with 24 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Even 18 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 blocks by forward Samme Givens (198-89, college: Drexel) did not help to save the game for Maccabi Raanana. Center Josh Hairston (203-92, college: Duke, agency: Octagon Europe) added 14 points and 11 rebounds. Five Maccabi Raanana players scored in double figures. Hapoel Kfar Saba have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Hap.R/G Givat. and Maccabi Raanana. Hapoel Kfar Saba will play against Hasharon (#13) in Ramat Hasharon in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Maccabi Raanana will play on the road against Hapoel Migd.H.

Macc.Rehovot - Maccabi H/H 84-80

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both sixth ranked Maccabi Rehovot and 7th ranked Hasharon had identical 9-8 record. This time Maccabi Rehovot used a home court advantage and defeated the opponent from Hod Hasharon 84-80. It was a good game for American forward Evan Yates (198-91, college: Ashland) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds. Swingman Gur Porat (197-79) contributed with 15 points and 5 assists for the winners. Yates is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market.
