The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Hapoel Holon (18-9) on the court of third ranked Hapoel Eilat on Wednesday night. Visitors were edged by Hapoel Eilat 84-81. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. Hapoel Eilat outrebounded Hapoel Holon 37-26 including 29 on the defensive glass. It was a good game for the former international point guard Afik Nissim (185-81) who led his team to a victory with 16 points. American forward Reginald Buckner (206-91, college: Mississippi) contributed with 7 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. American guard Tu Holloway (182-89, college: Xavier) answered with 26 points for Hapoel Holon. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game.

Hapoel Holon at the other side still keeps top position with nine games lost. Hapoel Eilat is looking forward to face Bnei Hasharon (#4) in Hod Hasharon in the next round. Hapoel Holon will play at home against Hapoel Jerusalem and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Maccabi T-A (17-10) against sixth ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (14-13) on Saturday night. Visiting Maccabi T-A was defeated by Hapoel Jerusalem in a tough game in Jerusalem 57-65. It was a great evening for the former international forward Lior Eliyahu (205-85) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds. Travis Peterson helped adding 9 points and 9 rebounds. The best for the losing side was the former international point guard Gal Mekel (190-88, college: Wichita St., agency: BeoBasket) with 22 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
