The Israelis beat the Foreigners in the BSL All-Star game for the third straight season on Monday night, winning 127- 111 at Romema Arena in Haifa.

The Israelis opened a double-digit lead by the end of the first quarter (36-24) and remained in complete control in the second half after taking a 19-point gap (72-53) into the break.

“We have proven the worth of Israeli hoops once more,” said Hapoel Gilboa/Galil guard Dagan Yavzuri, who was named as the MVP after finishing as the joint top-scorer with 20 points together with Lior Eliyahu.

Ben Rice added 18 points for the Israelis, with Ido Kozikaro scoring 14.

Deron Washington and Paul Stoll led the Foreigners with 16 points each.

Haifa guard Stoll also won the three-point contest, recording a score of 20 in the final to beat Guy Pnini and Afik Nissim.

The dunk competition was won by Hapoel Eilat’s Scotty Hopson, who defeated Washington and Kenny Hayes.

Earlier in the day, both rosters spent time with 140 local children, teaching them basketball skills according to a program set-up by the coach of Haifa and the Foreigners team, Brad Greenberg.
