The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Hapoel Holon as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Hapoel Holon defeated 3rd ranked Bnei Hasharon at home 79-75. The hosts trailed by 8 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 4 points. Hapoel Holon forced 20 Bnei Hasharon turnovers. The best player for the winners was American point guard Jordan Taylor (188-89, college: Wisconsin, agency: Pensack Sports) who scored 17 points and 8 assists. Guard Shlomi Harush (185-87) chipped in 15 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Hapoel Holon's coach Dan Shamir used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American forward Jeff Adrien (201-86, college: Connecticut) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds for the guests. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Bnei Hasharon at the other side dropped to the fourth place with 11 games lost. Bnei Hasharon will play next round against Hapoel Tel-Aviv trying to get back on the winning streak. Hapoel Holon will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Hapoel Eilat on the road.
Top ranked Maccabi T-A (17-9) recorded its ninth loss in Tel-Aviv. Hosts were edged by fourth ranked Hapoel Eilat (16-10) 76-73. American forward Landon Milbourne (201-87, college: Maryland) orchestrated the victory by scoring 12 points and 7 rebounds. Will Daniels contributed with 15 points for the winners. American swingman Devin Smith (196-83, college: Virginia) replied with 18 points and 6 rebounds for Maccabi T-A. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Hapoel Eilat have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Maccabi T-A lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the second position with nine games lost. Hapoel Eilat will play against league's leader Hapoel Holon at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Maccabi T-A will play against Hapoel Jerusalem and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Rosh Pina between Maccabi Haifa and Galil Gilboa. Seventh ranked Maccabi Haifa (14-12) got a very close victory on the road over 10th ranked Galil Gilboa (11-15). Maccabi Haifa managed to escape with a 2-point win 84-82 on Sunday evening. Gregory Vargas had a double-double by scoring 16 points, 11 assists and 4 steals to lead the charge for the winners. Jason Siggers responded with 30 points. Galil Gilboa's coach Ariel Beit-Halamy rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Maccabi Haifa moved-up to fifth place. Newly promoted Galil Gilboa keeps the tenth position with 15 games lost. Maccabi Haifa will meet at home Maccabi Ashdod (#11) in the next round where they are favorite. Galil Gilboa will play against Maccabi K/G in Kiryat Gat and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Ashdod, where higher ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (13-13) lost to eleventh ranked Maccabi Ashdod (10-16) in a road game 74-92. Chase Simon notched 27 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field) to lead the effort. Maccabi Ashdod's coach Meir Tapiro allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Maccabi Ashdod maintains eleventh position with 10-16 record. Hapoel Jerusalem lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with 13 games lost.
