There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in National League.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (21-4) in Nes Ziyona on Tuesday night. Hosts were defeated by second ranked Ironi Nahariya (20-5) 81-75. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Ironi Nes-Ziona. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St., agency: Global Sports Plaza) who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 5 rebounds. Raviv Pitshon (202-89) contributed with 11 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. American power forward Cyrus Tate (203-85, college: Iowa) answered with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 14 rebounds for Ironi Nes-Ziona. Ironi Nahariya maintains second place with 20-5 record behind leader Ironi Nes-Ziona. Ironi Nes-Ziona at the other side still keeps top position with four games lost. Ironi Nahariya are looking forward to face Hod Hasharon (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Ironi Nes-Ziona will play against Maccabi K/G in Kiryat Gat and is hoping to win this game.
Another interesting game for Hapoel Afula (16-9) which played on the court of Elitzur Yavne (15-10). Fourth ranked Hapoel Afula crushed hosts 73-52. American forward Allen Durham (198-88, college: Grace Bible) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds for the winners and Oz Blayzer chipped in 18 points and 10 rebounds. At the losing side swingman Elad Hofman (192-85) responded with 12 points and 7 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hapoel Afula maintains fourth place with 16-9 record, which they share with Ironi Ramat Gan. Elitzur Yavne at the other side keeps the sixth position with ten games lost. They share it with Ironi K-A. Hapoel Afula will play against Hapoel Kazrin (#8) at home in the next round. Elitzur Yavne will play against Maccabi Kiryat Bialik and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between third ranked Hod Hasharon (18-7) and 11th ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (8-17) in Hod Hasharon on Tuesday ended with biggest points difference. Hod Hasharon outscored guests from Kfar Saba 88-65. Chukwudinma Odiakosa nailed a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds for the winning side. Adir Harush came up with 17 points and 6 rebounds for Hapoel Kfar Saba in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hod Hasharon maintains third place with 18-7 record having just three points less than leader Ironi Nes-Ziona. Loser Hapoel Kfar Saba keeps the eleventh position with 17 games lost. Hod Hasharon will meet league's second-placed Ironi Nahariya on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Hapoel Kfar Saba will play against Kiryat Tivon (#12) in Kiryat Tivon and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games in round 25 were not that significant. Bottom-ranked Maccabi K/B was beaten by Kiryat Tivon on the road 84-77. Hapoel Kazrin lost to Macc.B.Yaakov on its own court 81-87. Ironi Ramat Gan managed to outperform Elitzur Ramla in a road game 87-74. Ironi K-A managed to beat Maccabi K/G at home 87-70.
The most impressive performance of 25th round was 17 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocks by Johndre Jefferson of Elitzur Ramla.


Kiryat Tivon - Maccabi K/B 84-77

No shocking result in a game when twelfth ranked Kiryat Tivon (7-18) beat at home bottom-ranked Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (4-21) 84-77 on Tuesday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Maccabi Kiryat Bialik won fourth quarter 24-23. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Kiryat Tivon made 26-of-31 free shots (83.9 percent) during the game. Kiryat Tivon outrebounded Maccabi Kiryat Bialik 40-26 including 25 on the defensive glass. Belizean-American forward Alex Carcamo (200-77, college: E.Washington, agency: Dream Team Management) nailed 26 points and 8 rebounds (made all of his ten free throws !!!) for the winning side and swingman Tomer Ber-Aven (196-92) accounted for 18 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. American forward Dallis Joyner (203-90, college: Stony Brook) came up with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds and guard Dror Davidi (190-84) added 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists respectively for Maccabi Kiryat Bialik in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Maccabi Kiryat Bialik's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Kiryat Tivon maintains twelfth place with 7-18 record. Loser Maccabi Kiryat Bialik stay dead last with 21 lost games. Kiryat Tivon will meet higher ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (#11) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Maccabi Kiryat Bialik will play against Elitzur Yavne and hope to secure a win.

Elitzur Yavne - Hapoel Afula 52-73

Another interesting game for Hapoel Afula (16-9) which played on the court of Elitzur Yavne (15-10). Fourth ranked Hapoel Afula crushed hosts 73-52. Elitzur Yavne was ahead by 3 points at the halftime before a 41-17 second half run of Hapoel Afula. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Elitzur Yavne to just 6 points in third quarter. Hapoel Afula forced 20 Elitzur Yavne turnovers. American forward Allen Durham (198-88, college: Grace Bible) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds for the winners and forward Oz Blayzer (199-92) chipped in 18 points and 10 rebounds. Durham is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. At the losing side swingman Elad Hofman (192-85) responded with 12 points and 7 rebounds and guard Noam Matalon (197-87, agency: Avi Zilberman) scored 7 points and 8 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hapoel Afula maintains fourth place with 16-9 record, which they share with Ironi Ramat Gan. Elitzur Yavne at the other side keeps the sixth position with ten games lost. They share it with Ironi K-A. Hapoel Afula will play against Hapoel Kazrin (#8) at home in the next round.

Hapoel Kazrin - Macc.B.Yaakov 81-87

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 8th ranked Hapoel Kazrin (11-14) lost at home to ninth ranked Beer Yaakov (10-15) 87-81 on Tuesday. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 28-19. But Hapoel Kazrin won second period 24-23. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American forward Jermaine Hall (196-80, college: Wagner) nailed 23 points and 8 rebounds for the winning side and point guard Avi Eliyahu (175-87, agency: Gross Zeev ISA) accounted for 21 points and 7 assists. Naturalized Russian power forward Anton Kazarnovski (205-85) came up with 21 points and 9 rebounds and guard Liran Shvarzvald (191-86) added 20 points respectively for Hapoel Kazrin in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hapoel Kazrin's coach Ziv Bartana rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Beer Yaakov maintains ninth place with 10-15 record. Newly promoted Hapoel Kazrin keeps the eighth position with 14 games lost. Beer Yaakov will meet at home Elitzur Ramla (#10) in the next round. Hapoel Kazrin will play against Hapoel Afula and hope to secure a win.

Elitzur Ramla - Ironi Ramat Gan 74-87

Very predictable result when fifth ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (16-9) won against on the road 10th ranked Elitzur Ramla (9-16) 87-74 on Tuesday. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Ironi Ramat Gan looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American swingman Tyrone Kent (196-86, college: Toledo) nailed a double-double by scoring 21 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals for the winning side and the former international power forward Amit Tamir (208-79, college: California) accounted for 15 points and 8 rebounds. Kent is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top summer league for players who want to play basketball overseas. American power forward Johndre Jefferson (207-88, college: S.Carolina) came up with a double-double by scoring 17 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocks and swingman Ohad Cohen (193-87) added 23 points and 6 rebounds respectively for Elitzur Ramla in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Ironi Ramat Gan moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Hapoel Afula. Loser Elitzur Ramla keeps the tenth position with 16 games lost. Ironi Ramat Gan will meet at home Ironi Kiryat Ata (#7) in the next round. Elitzur Ramla will play against Beer Yaakov and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Ironi K-A - Maccabi K/G 87-70

Not a big story in a game when 13th ranked Maccabi K/G (5-20) lost on the road to seventh ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (15-10) 87-70 on Tuesday. The game was mostly controlled by Ironi Kiryat Ata. Maccabi K/G managed to win third quarter 20-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American point guard Darrin Govens (185-88, college: St.Joseph's) nailed 22 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side and power forward Kobi Izik (204-83, agency: Avi Zilberman) accounted for 20 points and 10 rebounds. Four Ironi Kiryat Ata players scored in double figures. American swingman Muhammad El Amin (196-87, college: Stony Brook, agency: Two Points) came up with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 10 rebounds and the other American import forward Lenny Daniel (203-87, college: CS Northridge) added 19 points and 13 rebounds respectively for Maccabi K/G in the defeat. Ironi Kiryat Ata have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Elitzur Yavne. Maccabi K/G lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the thirteenth position with 20 games lost. Ironi Kiryat Ata will meet higher ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
