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.

Maccabi Ashdod - Hapoel J-M 92-74

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. The game without a history. Maccabi Ashdod led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. It was a great shooting night for Maccabi Ashdod especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 56.3 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. American Chase Simon (201-89, college: Detroit Mercy, agency: Three Eye Sports) notched 27 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and the other American import point guard Kevin Dillard (183-89, college: Dayton) supported him with 19 points and 4 assists. Maccabi Ashdod's coach Meir Tapiro allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 14 points and 5 assists by American point guard Curtis Jerrells (185-87, college: Baylor) did not help to save the game for Hapoel Jerusalem. The former international forward Lior Eliyahu (205-85) added 6 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists for the guests. Four Hapoel Jerusalem players scored in double figures. Maccabi Ashdod maintains eleventh position with 10-16 record. Hapoel Jerusalem lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixth place with 13 games lost. Maccabi Ashdod's next round opponent will be higher ranked Maccabi Haifa (#5) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
