Victor Rudd
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Eighth-ranked Maccabi Rishon (10-12) gave a tough game to first ranked Maccabi T-A (16-6) in Tel-Aviv on Sunday. Maccabi T-A managed to secure only two-point victory 83-81. However their fans expected much easier game. The hosts trailed by 3 points at the halftime before their 25-17 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Maccabi T-A made 22-of-26 free shots (84.6 percent) during the game, while Maccabi Rishon only scored four points from the stripe. American forward Victor Rudd (205-91, college: S.Florida) scored 25 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Guinea-Bissau-American center Colton Iverson (212-89, college: Colorado St., agency: Pensack Sports) chipped in 12 points and 12 rebounds during the contest. Maccabi T-A's coach Ainars Bagatskis used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side American-Belarusian point guard Maalik Wayns (185-91, college: Villanova) responded with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Maccabi T-A maintains first position with 16-6 record. Maccabi Rishon lost third consecutive game. Defending champion keeps the eighth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Galil Gilboa and Ironi Nahariya.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Bnei Hasharon (13-9) against eleventh ranked Maccabi Ashdod (8-14) on Monday night. Visiting Bnei Hasharon was crushed by Maccabi Ashdod in Ashdod 94-70. American Chase Simon (201-89, college: Detroit Mercy, agency: Three Eye Sports) notched 29 points to lead the effort and Preston Knowles supported him with 12 points and 9 rebounds. Even 11 points and 6 rebounds by American Stephen Dennis (198-87, college: Kutztown, agency: HMS) did not help to save the game for Bnei Hasharon. 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 Ashdod have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain eleventh position with 8-14 record. Bnei Hasharon at the other side keeps the third place with nine games lost.
Hapoel Eilat (#4) was upset in Haifa by seventh ranked Maccabi Haifa 81-72. Gregory Vargas fired 23 points and 4 assists for the winners. Maccabi Haifa's coach Ofer Rahimi allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Landon Milbourne produced 23 points for lost side. Maccabi Haifa (11-11) moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Hapoel T-A. Loser Hapoel Eilat keeps the fourth position with ten games lost. They share it with Hapoel J-M.
The game in Tel-Aviv was also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (12-10) played at the court of sixth ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (11-11). Hapoel Tel-Aviv defeated Hapoel Jerusalem 83-70. Worth to mention a great performance of Tomer Ginat who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds. Hapoel Tel-Aviv maintains sixth position with 11-11 record, which they share with Maccabi Haifa. Hapoel Jerusalem at the other side dropped to the fourth place with ten games lost.
Important game to mention about took place in Nahariya. Tenth ranked Galil Gilboa (10-12) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging 9th ranked Ironi Nahariya (10-12) 73-72 in the fight for the eighth place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Ironi Nahariya. Americans were the main players on the court. Murphy Holloway had a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Galil Gilboa moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Maccabi Rishon and Ironi Nahariya.

In the last game of round 22 bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G was destroyed by Hapoel Holon on the opponent's court 98-66.

Hapoel Holon - Maccabi K/G 98-66

Very expected game when 12th ranked Maccabi K/G (4-18) was crushed on the road by second ranked Hapoel Holon (15-7) 98-66 on Monday. Hapoel Holon looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Maccabi K/G's players. Americans were the main players on the court. Swingman James Bell (197-92, college: Villanova) scored 23 points and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and guard Tu Holloway (182-89, college: Xavier) chipped in 22 points and 6 assists during the contest. Hapoel Holon's coach Dan Shamir felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side swingman Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pensack Sports) responded with 20 points and power forward Curtis Kelly (204-88, college: Kansas St., agency: HMS) scored 14 points and 7 rebounds. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hapoel Holon maintains second position with 15-7 record behind leader Maccabi T-A. Loser Maccabi K/G stay at the bottom place with 18 games lost.

American Chase Simon (201-89, college: Detroit Mercy, agency: Three Eye Sports) notched 29 points to lead the effort and the other American import guard Preston Knowles (187-89, college: Louisville) supported him with 12 points and 9 rebounds. Five Maccabi Ashdod players scored in double figures. Even 11 points and 6 rebounds by American Stephen Dennis (198-87, college: Kutztown, agency: HMS) did not help to save the game for Bnei Hasharon. International forward Karam Mashour (198-91, college: Morehead St., agency: Three Eye Sports) added 11 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. 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 Ashdod have a solid three-game winning streak.
