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

Top ranked Maccabi T-A (15-5) recorded its fifth loss in Tel-Aviv on Tuesday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Bnei Hasharon (12-8) 99-92. Maccabi T-A trailed by 13 points at halftime and as many as 14 after three quarters before a 28-21 last quarter charge cut the deficit to 92-99 at the end of the game. Bnei Hasharon made 19-of-21 free shots (90.5 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. The best player for the winners was American forward Jeff Adrien (201-86, college: Connecticut) who had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds. American-Montenegrin forward Halil Kanacevic (203-91, college: St.Joseph's) chipped in 21 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. American swingman Devin Smith (196-83, college: Virginia) produced 22 points and 9 rebounds for the hosts. Maccabi T-A's coach Ainars Bagatskis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Bnei Hasharon maintains third position with 12-8 record having just three points less than leader Maccabi T-A. Maccabi T-A at the other side still keeps top place with five games lost. Bnei Hasharon are looking forward to face league's second-placed Hapoel Holon on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Maccabi T-A will play against Galil Gilboa in Rosh Pina and is hoping to win this game.
Eighth-ranked Maccabi Haifa (9-11) made lots of trouble for first ranked Maccabi T-A (15-5) in Tel-Aviv. Maccabi T-A managed to secure only one-point victory 97-96. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Maccabi Haifa. Guinea-Bissau-American center Colton Iverson (212-89, college: Colorado St., agency: Pensack Sports) saved the victory by scoring 21 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Gal Mekel contributed with 21 points and 5 assists for the winners. American swingman William Graves (198-88, college: N.Carolina) replied with 34 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds for Maccabi Haifa. Maccabi T-A maintains first position with 15-5 record. Maccabi Haifa at the other side keeps the eighth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Ironi Nahariya. Maccabi T-A will play against Galil Gilboa (#10) in Rosh Pina in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Maccabi Haifa will play on the road against Maccabi Rishon in Rishon Le-Zion and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Sixth-ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (10-10) made lots of trouble for second ranked Hapoel Holon (14-6) on Sunday. Hapoel Holon managed to secure only two-point victory 80-78. However their fans expected much easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Darion Atkins who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 9 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Richard Howell responded with a double-double by scoring 13 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Hapoel Holon maintains second position with 14-6 record behind leader Maccabi T-A. Loser Hapoel Tel-Aviv keeps the sixth place with ten games lost. They share the position with Maccabi Rishon. Hapoel Holon will meet at home Bnei Hasharon (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Hapoel Tel-Aviv will play against Maccabi Ashdod and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Bnei Hasharon (12-8) against ninth ranked Ironi Nahariya (9-11) on Monday night. Host Bnei Hasharon was edged by Ironi Nahariya in a tough game in Hod Hasharon 64-67. The winners were led by Yancy Gates who scored that evening 17 points and 6 rebounds. Ironi Nahariya's coach Eric Elfasi allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Ironi Nahariya moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Maccabi Haifa. Bnei Hasharon at the other side keeps the third position with eight games lost. Ironi Nahariya's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G (#12) in Kiryat Gat. Bnei Hasharon will play on the road against the league's second-placed Hapoel Holon (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G managed to get a fourth victory, breaking the five-game losing streak on Sunday night. This time they won against tenth-ranked Galil Gilboa in Rosh Pina 80-66. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Galil Gilboa. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was Josh Selby who scored 23 points and 6 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Maccabi K/G maintains twelfth position with 4-16 record. Newly promoted Galil Gilboa keeps the tenth place with 12 games lost. Maccabi K/G will face higher ranked Ironi Nahariya (#9) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

Rest of the games of round 20 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Hapoel Eilat was defeated by Maccabi Ashdod in a road game 93-82. Maccabi Rishon was beaten by Hapoel J-M at home 68-82. Hapoel J-M lost to Hapoel Eilat on the opponent's court 55-62.
The best stats of 20th round was 16 points and 6 rebounds by Landon Milbourne of Hapoel Eilat.

Eighth-ranked Maccabi Haifa (9-11) made lots of trouble for first ranked Maccabi T-A (15-5) in Tel-Aviv. Maccabi T-A managed to secure only one-point victory 97-96. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Maccabi Haifa. Maccabi Haifa was ahead by 4 points at the halftime before a 26-17 third quarter run of Maccabi T-A. They made 17-of-19 charity shots (89.5 percent) during the game. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. Guinea-Bissau-American center Colton Iverson (212-89, college: Colorado St., agency: Pensack Sports) saved the victory by scoring 21 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). The former international point guard Gal Mekel (190-88, college: Wichita St., agency: BeoBasket) contributed with 21 points and 5 assists for the winners. American swingman William Graves (198-88, college: N.Carolina) replied with 34 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds and Venezuelan point guard Gregory Vargas (180-86, agency: Pro Sports) added 18 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists in the effort for Maccabi Haifa. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Maccabi T-A maintains first position with 15-5 record. Maccabi Haifa at the other side keeps the eighth place with 11 games lost.

Bnei Hertzeliyya - Ironi Nahariya 64-67

Very important is a home loss of third ranked Bnei Hasharon (12-8) against ninth ranked Ironi Nahariya (9-11) on Monday night. Host Bnei Hasharon was edged by Ironi Nahariya in a tough game in Hod Hasharon 64-67. Bnei Hasharon was ahead by 4 points after three quarters before a 23-16 charge of Ironi Nahariya, which allowed them to win the game. They also forced 21 Bnei Hasharon turnovers. The winners were led by American power forward Yancy Gates (206-89, college: Cincinnati) who scored that evening 17 points and 6 rebounds and the other American import point guard Derwin Kitchen (194-86, college: Florida St.) supported him with 10 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Four Ironi Nahariya players scored in double figures. Ironi Nahariya's coach Eric Elfasi allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds by international forward Karam Mashour (198-91, college: Morehead St., agency: Three Eye Sports) did not help to save the game for Bnei Hasharon. American forward Jeff Adrien (201-86, college: Connecticut) added 13 points for the hosts. Ironi Nahariya moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Maccabi Haifa. Bnei Hasharon at the other side keeps the third position with eight games lost. Ironi Nahariya's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G (#12) in Kiryat Gat.

Maccabi Ashdod - Hapoel Eilat 93-82

There was an upset when higher ranked Hapoel Eilat (12-9) was defeated on the road by eleventh ranked Maccabi Ashdod (6-14) 93-82 on Monday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Maccabi Ashdod looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. The best player for the winners was the former international Jake Cohen (208-90, college: Davidson) who had a double-double by scoring 14 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists.

Maccabi Rishon - Hapoel J-M 68-82
