The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season.

The game between second ranked Hapoel Holon (13-6) and fifth ranked Hapoel Eilat (11-8) was the most important one in the last round on Sunday night. Hapoel Holon was defeated by Hapoel Eilat in Eilat 81-66. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Hapoel Holon. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 81-66. 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. At the losing side forward Darion Atkins (203-92, college: Virginia) responded with 21 points and 9 rebounds. Hapoel Eilat have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Hapoel J-M. Hapoel Holon at the other side keeps the second position with six games lost. Hapoel Eilat is looking forward to face Maccabi Ashdod (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hapoel Holon will play against Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
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. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Maccabi Haifa maintains eighth place with 9-10 record. Hapoel Jerusalem at the other side keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. They share it with Hapoel Eilat. Maccabi Haifa will play against league's leader Maccabi T-A in Tel-Aviv in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hapoel Jerusalem will play on the road against Maccabi Rishon in Rishon Le-Zion and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Winner League top team - Maccabi T-A (14-4) had no problems winning another game on Sunday. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Maccabi K/G (3-16) in Kiryat Gat 103-79.

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. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Bnei Hasharon.

Maccabi Rishon - Maccabi Ashdod 80-58

Rather predictable result in Rishon Le-Zion where seventh ranked Maccabi Rishon (10-9) smashed 11th ranked Maccabi Ashdod (5-14) 80-58. It looked good early as Maccabi Ashdod took a 2-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Maccabi Rishon had a 21-8 second period charge getting the lead and Maccabi Ashdod was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 58-80. Maccabi Rishon players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Belarusian point guard Maalik Wayns (185-91, college: Villanova) who helped to win the game recording 15 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. The former international Elishay Kadir (202-87) contributed with 10 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Four Maccabi Rishon players scored in double figures.

Bnei Hertzeliyya - Galil Gilboa 73-79

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. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Bnei Hasharon.
