Another successful night for Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem at Pais Arena after the team beat Maccabi Ashdod 75-67 in the Israeli League. This was Hapoel's 10th win in the local competition and they are sitting in 2nd place. Ashdod got the early lead and only after Rosefelt and Halperin got off the bench, Hapoel managed to get back the lead in the 2nd quarter. The reds had a bad day from downtown (3-for-16) but the defense did the job as the visitors shot in 35% from 2p.


The crowd at Pais Arena voted for Isaac Rosefelt as the MVP. The Israeli-American center scored 12 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 22 minutes. 


Tarence Kinsey led the team with 15 points, Travis Peterson added 12 points and Curtis Jerrells scored 10 points.


On Sunday the reds will host Hapoel Holon at Pais Arena with the 2nd spot in the Israeli League on the line.
