Evan Yates
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.

There was a change at the National League leadership position after last games. Round 21 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Hapoel B/S (14-7). They were edged by fifth ranked Maccabi Rehovot (13-8) 60-59 on Tuesday night. American forward Evan Yates (198-91, college: Ashland) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds for the winners and swingman Gur Porat (197-79) chipped in 11 points and 6 rebounds. Maccabi Rehovot's coach Avner Yeor used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was American power forward Jeff Allen (201-87, college: Virginia Tech) with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds. Maccabi Rehovot have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Hap.R/G Givat. and Ironi K-A. Hapoel B/S at the other side dropped to the second position with seven games lost. They share it with Hapoel K/S. They were replaced at the leadership position by Maccabi Raanana. Hapoel B/S will play next round against Ironi Ramat Gan trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Maccabi Rehovot will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Hap.R/G Givat. in Givataim.
An interesting game took place in Afula where 4th placed Hap.R/G Givat. (13-8) was upset on the court of eleventh ranked Hapoel Afula (10-11) 86-65. American forward Demetrius Treadwell (201-91, college: Akron) nailed a double-double by scoring 19 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side and Omer Tal accounted for 15 points and 6 assists. American guard Rashad Madden (196-92, college: Arkansas) came up with 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for Hap.R/G Givat. in the defeat. Hapoel Afula moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Hapoel Migd.H. Hap.R/G Givat. at the other side keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. They share it with Macc.Rehovot and Ironi K-A. Hapoel Afula will play against league's leader Maccabi Raanana on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hap.R/G Givat. will play against Maccabi Rehovot and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
12th ranked Hap.Haifa (7-14) was outscored at home by second ranked Maccabi Raanana (15-6) with the biggest margin this round 97-55 on Tuesday night. The best player for the winners was Josh Hairston who had a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Jaraun Burrows who recorded 16 points and 7 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Maccabi Raanana have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Hap.Haifa lost ninth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the twelfth place with 14 games lost. Maccabi Raanana will meet at home Hapoel Afula (#9) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hap.Haifa will play against Hasharon in Ramat Hasharon and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 21: Ramat Hasharon lost to Maccabi H/H on the opponent's court 86-91. Bottom-ranked Ironi Ramat Gan was outscored by Ironi Nes-Ziona in a home game 67-91. Galil Elion recorded a loss to Hapoel K/S on the road 85-78. Hapoel Migd.H. was crushed by Ironi K-A on its own court 67-100.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 25 points and 9 rebounds by Sir'Dominic Pointer of Ironi K-A.

Maccabi H/H - Ramat Hasharon 91-86

Very expected game in Hod Hasharon where 13th ranked Hasharon (4-17) was defeated by eighth ranked Hasharon (11-10) 91-86 on Tuesday. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Hasharon looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Americans were the main players on the court. The best player for the winners was guard Vernon Teel (193-87, college: Loyola Mary) who had a double-double by scoring 22 points, 8 rebounds and 13 assists. Storm Warren (201-88, college: LSU, agency: Octagon Europe) chipped in 27 points and 5 rebounds. Hasharon's coach Hanan Hershkovich allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. At the other side the best for losing team was forward Lorenzo Gordon (201-83, college: Oklahoma City) who recorded 20 points and 7 rebounds and forward Maxie Esho (206-91, college: Massachusetts) added 20 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) respectively. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hasharon maintains eighth place with 11-10 record. Hasharon lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth position with 17 games lost. Hasharon will meet higher ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hasharon will play against Hap.Haifa (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Macc.Rehovot - Hapoel B/S 60-59

There was a change at the National League leadership position after last games. Round 21 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Hapoel B/S (14-7). They were edged by fifth ranked Maccabi Rehovot (13-8) 60-59 on Tuesday night. American forward Evan Yates (198-91, college: Ashland) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds for the winners and swingman Gur Porat (197-79) chipped in 11 points and 6 rebounds. Yates is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Maccabi Rehovot's coach Avner Yeor used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was American power forward Jeff Allen (201-87, college: Virginia Tech) with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds and the other American import swingman Jason Williams (198-83, college: UTEP) scored 18 points. Maccabi Rehovot have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Hap.R/G Givat. and Ironi K-A. Hapoel B/S at the other side dropped to the second position with seven games lost. They share it with Hapoel K/S. They were replaced at the leadership position by Maccabi Raanana. Hapoel B/S will play next round against Ironi Ramat Gan trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Maccabi Rehovot will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Hap.R/G Givat. in Givataim.

Ironi Ramat Gan - Ironi Nes-Ziona 67-91

Very predictable result when seventh ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (12-9) smashed on the road bottom-ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (2-19) 91-67 on Tuesday. Ironi Nes-Ziona dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Ironi Ramat Gan's 36. Ironi Nes-Ziona forced 27 Ironi Ramat Gan turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. The best player for the winners was American power forward Lee Roberts (201-87, college: Findlay, OH) who had a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds. The former international Raviv Pitshon (201-89) chipped in a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds. Five Ironi Nes-Ziona players scored in double figures. At the other side the best for losing team was naturalized American Sean Labanowski (205-92) who recorded a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds and American power forward Anthony Lee (206-91, college: Ohio St.) added 8 points and 12 rebounds respectively. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Ironi Nes-Ziona maintains seventh place with 12-9 record. Ironi Ramat Gan lost eleventh consecutive game. They stay dead last with 19 lost games. Ironi Nes-Ziona will meet at home higher ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ironi Ramat Gan will play against the league's second-placed Hapoel B/S (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Top scorers:
Ironi Ramat Gan: S.Labanowski 18+10reb+2ast, V.Gandlin 11+4reb+1ast, A.Lee 8+12reb+1ast, T.Zalmanson 7+1reb, R.Apelstein 6+1reb, A.Harari 6+3reb

Hapoel K/S - Galil Elion 85-78

Not a big story in a game when 10th ranked Galil Elion (9-12) was defeated on the road by third ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (14-7) 85-78 on Tuesday. Hapoel Kfar Saba made 27-of-35 free shots (77.1 percent) during the game. Americans were the main players on the court. The best player for the winners was guard Denzel Livingston (193-93, college: Incarnate Word) who had a double-double by scoring 32 points and 14 rebounds. Forward Terrence Watson (200-87, college: Ball St.) chipped in a double-double by scoring 18 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks.

Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hapoel Kfar Saba moved-up to second place, which they share with Hapoel B/S. Loser Galil Elion dropped to the eleventh position with 12 games lost. Hapoel Kfar Saba will meet Ironi Nes-Ziona (#7) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Galil Elion will play against Hapoel Migd.H. (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Hapoel Afula - Hap.R/G Givat. 86-65

An interesting game took place in Afula where 4th placed Hap.R/G Givat. (13-8) was upset on the court of eleventh ranked Hapoel Afula (10-11) 86-65. Hapoel Afula outrebounded Hap.R/G Givat. 42-30 including 18 on the offensive glass. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Hap.R/G Givat.'s players. American forward Demetrius Treadwell (201-91, college: Akron) nailed a double-double by scoring 19 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side and guard Omer Tal (188-92) accounted for 15 points and 6 assists. Five Hapoel Afula players scored in double figures.
