James Bell
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Maccabi T-A (17-7) in Tel-Aviv on Sunday night. Hosts were edged by Hapoel Holon (17-7) 80-79. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Maccabi T-A. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 80-79. Hapoel Holon made 22-of-28 free shots (78.6 percent) during the game. It was a good game for American swingman James Bell (197-92, college: Villanova) who saved his team from a defeat with 28 points. The other American import forward Darion Atkins (203-92, college: Virginia) contributed with 17 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American forward Victor Rudd (205-91, college: S.Florida) replied with 23 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for Maccabi T-A. Hapoel Holon have a solid three-game winning streak. They used an opportunity after Maccabi T-A lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position which they share with defeated Maccabi T-A. Hapoel Holon is looking forward to face Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#7) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Maccabi T-A will play against Bnei Hasharon (#3) in Hod Hasharon and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Bnei Hasharon (14-10) against eleventh ranked Maccabi Ashdod (9-15) on Monday night. Visiting Bnei Hasharon was defeated by Maccabi Ashdod in Ashdod 84-68. Worth to mention a great performance of international Iftach Ziv (191-95) who helped to win the game recording 15 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists and Chase Simon who added 22 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was Senegalese-Filipino center Hamady NDiaye (213-87, college: Rutgers) with 15 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Maccabi Ashdod maintains eleventh position with 9-15 record. Bnei Hasharon at the other side keeps the third place with ten games lost. They share the position with Hapoel Eilat. Maccabi Ashdod will play against higher ranked Hapoel Eilat (#4) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Bnei Hasharon will play against the league's leader Maccabi T-A where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
The game in Nahariya was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Maccabi Haifa (12-12) played at the court of eighth ranked Ironi Nahariya (11-13). Ironi Nahariya managed to secure a 9-point victory 78-69 on Sunday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Maccabi Haifa. The winners were led by Yancy Gates who scored that evening 23 points and 6 rebounds. Ironi Nahariya's coach Eric Elfasi used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 20 points and 9 rebounds by William Graves did not help to save the game for Maccabi Haifa. Ironi Nahariya maintains eighth position with 11-13 record, which they share with Maccabi Rishon. Loser Maccabi Haifa keeps the sixth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Hapoel T-A. Ironi Nahariya will meet bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G (#12) in the next round. Maccabi Haifa will play against Maccabi Rishon (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Hapoel Jerusalem (13-11) and Maccabi Rishon (11-13), which took place in Rishon Le-Zion. Higher ranked Hapoel Jerusalem was outleveled in a road game by ninth ranked Maccabi Rishon 83-59. The best player for the winners was Elishay Kadir who scored 17 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Hapoel Jerusalem's coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Defending champion moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Ironi Nahariya. Hapoel Jerusalem at the other side keeps the fifth position with 11 games lost. Maccabi Rishon's next round opponent will be higher ranked Maccabi Haifa (#6) on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Hapoel Jerusalem will play against Galil Gilboa and hope to win that game.

In the last two games of round 24 bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G was beaten by Hapoel T-A on the road 99-83. Galil Gilboa lost to Hapoel Eilat on its own court 69-76.

Hapoel T-A - Maccabi K/G 99-83

No shocking result in a game when seventh ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (12-12) beat at home bottom-ranked Maccabi K/G (4-20) 99-83. The game was mostly controlled by Hapoel Tel-Aviv. Maccabi K/G was better in second period 30-25. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Hapoel Tel-Aviv forced 19 Maccabi K/G turnovers. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 25 assists. The best player for the winners was American point guard Mark Lyons (185-89, college: Arizona, agency: Higher Vision Sports) who scored 29 points. International Tomer Ginat (202-94) chipped in 17 points and 8 rebounds. Hapoel Tel-Aviv's coach Rami Hadar allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the other side the best for losing team was American swingman Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Pensack Sports) who recorded a double-double by scoring 14 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists and his fellow American import power forward Curtis Kelly (204-88, college: Kansas St., agency: HMS) added 16 points and 8 rebounds respectively. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. Hapoel Tel-Aviv moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Maccabi Haifa. Maccabi K/G lost fourth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 20 lost games. Hapoel Tel-Aviv's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Hapoel Holon on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Maccabi K/G will play against Ironi Nahariya (#9) and hope to win that game.

Galil Gilboa - Hapoel Eilat 69-76

Very expected game when 10th ranked Galil Gilboa (10-14) lost to fourth ranked Hapoel Eilat (14-10) in Rosh Pina 69-76. The guests were ahead by 16 points but lost the second period ending it with a 3-point deficit before their 23-13 run, which allowed them to win the game.

American forward Landon Milbourne (201-87, college: Maryland) chipped in 15 points and 8 rebounds.

Four Galil Gilboa players scored in double figures. Hapoel Eilat moved-up to third place, which they share with Bnei Hertzeliyya.
