Hapoel Eilat made 17-of-19 free shots (89.5 percent) during the game. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for forward Reginald Buckner (206-91, college: Mississippi) who led his team to a victory scoring 8 points and 14 rebounds. Forward Landon Milbourne (201-87, college: Maryland) helped adding 17 points (made all of his nine free throws !!!). Hapoel Eilat's coach Oded Katash used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.

Hapoel Jerusalem (#4) was upset in Haifa by eighth ranked Maccabi Haifa 86-69. It was an exceptional evening for Venezuelan point guard Gregory Vargas (180-86, agency: Pro Sports) who led the winners and scored 11 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Orlando Mendez-Valdez accounted for 17 points and 4 assists. American point guard Curtis Jerrells (185-87, college: Baylor, agency: Stealth Sport) came up with 11 points and 9 assists for Hapoel Jerusalem in the defeat.

An interesting game took place in Hod Hasharon where 4th placed Bnei Hasharon (11-7) was upset on its own court by tenth ranked Galil Gilboa (8-11) 79-73.

Rather predictable result in Rishon Le-Zion where seventh ranked Maccabi Rishon (10-9) smashed 11th ranked Maccabi Ashdod (5-14) 80-58.
