Maccabi Tel Aviv ended Maccabi Givat Shmuel's ninegame winning streak with a 100-76 win in the teams' regular season finale on Wednesday night in Or Yehuda. The game was just one of five meaningless contests in BSL Matchday 33, with the four teams that still have something to play for, resting their top players ahead of next week's Final Four. On Tuesday night, Maccabi Tel Aviv meets Ironi Nahariya and Hapoel Jerusalem takes on Maccabi Rishon in the first Final Four semifinals at Nokia Arena, with the winners playing in a one-game, winner-takes-all final on Thursday. Hapoel Jerusalem 97, Ramat Hasharon 78 Ido Kozikaro came through with 18 points and 10 rebounds in 19 minutes to help Jerusalem to an easy win against National Leaguebound Ramat Hasharon. Jerusalem coach Erez Edelstein divided the minutes among his players, with 10 players seeing between 14 and 23 minutes. Meir Tapiro added 18, while Jonathan Skj ldebrand had a seasonhigh 15 in defeat. Ironi Nahariya 93, Elitzur Ashkelon 77 Alvin Young and Otis Hill showed that they are primed for the Final Four with 28 and 27 points, respectively, in a comfortable road win over Ashkelon. Brian Tolbert led the hosts with 21. Ironi Ramat Gan's farewell game from the BSL went well, as Frankie King scored a season-high 25 in a 96-75 win over Final Four-bound Maccabi Rishon. Jason Gardner added 22, while Yoni Nir had his best game of the campaign with 17 points and nine rebounds. Rishon, which rested its top players, was led by Omar Sneed's 15 points in 19 minutes. Hapoel Galil Elyon-Golan finished its season on a high-note with an 85-73 win over Bnei Hasharon.
