Denzel
Livingston
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in National League. 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.

The most shocking disappointment of round 24 was only three-point a home defeat of second-best Hapoel B/S (15-9) to fourth ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (16-8) 82-79 in the game for the second place. It was a key game for the second position in the league. 26 personal fouls committed by Hapoel B/S helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Denzel Livingston (193-93, college: Incarnate Word) who helped to win the game recording 28 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists and forward Eitan Rotemberg (197-91) who added 10 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American power forward Jeff Allen (201-87, college: Virginia Tech) with a double-double by scoring 27 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Hapoel Kfar Saba moved-up to second place. Hapoel B/S at the other side dropped to the third position with nine games lost. They share it with Hap.R/G Givat.. Hapoel Kfar Saba are looking forward to face Hapoel Migd.H. (#11) in Tarshicha in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hapoel B/S will play on the road against the league's leader Maccabi Raanana (#1) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Raanana. First ranked Maccabi Raanana (17-7) saved a 3-point victory at home edging 3rd ranked Hap.R/G Givat. (15-9) 79-76 on Tuesday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hap.R/G Givat.. The winners were led by American center Josh Hairston (203-92, college: Duke, agency: Octagon Europe) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds and Samme Givens supported him with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Even a double-double of 23 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists by American guard Rashad Madden (196-92, college: Arkansas) did not help to save the game for Hap.R/G Givat.. Maccabi Raanana maintains first position with 17-7 record. Hap.R/G Givat. at the other side keeps the third place with nine games lost. They share the position with Hapoel B/S. Maccabi Raanana will play against Hapoel B/S (#4) in Beer Sheva in the next round. Hap.R/G Givat. will play at home against Hasharon and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Nes Ziyona between Hasharon and Ironi Nes-Ziona. Eighth ranked Hasharon (14-10) got a very close victory on the road over 5th ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (14-10). Hasharon managed to escape with a 3-point win 94-91 in the fight for the fifth place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Ironi Nes-Ziona. The best player for the winners was Storm Warren who had a double-double by scoring 19 points, 19 rebounds and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Tal-Michael Dunne who recorded a double-double by scoring 23 points, 15 rebounds and 8 assists. Hasharon have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Ironi Nes-Ziona. Hasharon will meet at home bottom-ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (#14) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ironi Nes-Ziona will play against Hap.Haifa (#10) and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the Winner League just one year after relegation.
Bottom-ranked Ironi Ramat Gan managed to get a third victory, breaking the thirteen-game losing streak. This time they won against tenth-ranked Hapoel Migd.H. 98-84. It was a good game for Anthony Lee who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 25 rebounds and 4 blocks (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Hapoel Migd.H.'s coach David Elharrar rotated ten players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Ironi Ramat Gan maintains fourteenth position with 3-21 record. Hapoel Migd.H. lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with 14 games lost. Ironi Ramat Gan's next round opponent will be higher ranked Hasharon (#7) in Hod Hasharon and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Kazrin. Twelfth ranked Hap.Haifa (10-14) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging 11th ranked Galil Elion (10-14) 86-85 in the fight for the tenth place.
