No Surprises in Cup Quarters
Safsal ,02/11/2010
Three days after the playoff quarter finals sensation, Jerusalem couldn’t pull off another miracle against Ramla. The other favorites also won their ticket to the Israeli cup semi finals: Natanya beat out Raanana Hertzelia, Ramat Hen & Ramat Hasharon had no trouble with Holon and Hapoel Tel Aviv.
Semis draw is on Tuesday.

ASA Jerusalem 83 – Elizur Ramla 97
After losing game one of the playoff 1/4s at home to Jerusalem, 54 – 56, Ramla scored 54 points in the first half of the cup game en route to a convincing victory. Ramla opened a 54 – 42 lead in the final minutes of the half, made it a 16 point game in the 3rd and made sure Monday's mishap doesn’t repeat itself. Next week the teams will resume their best of five 1/4s series.

Raanana Hertzelia 63 – Elizur Maccabi Natanya 71
Same ol' same ol' for Raanana. Raanana Hertzelia came in very motivated with a pretty full gym and really out played their opponents for most of the game. They led 39 – 33 at the half, led by one after three and led by six two minutes into the 4th. But, Natanya never quit and despite being far from brilliant got back into it at crunch time and unlike the locals, made the right decisions.
