Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem will meet Thursday night (live on Sport5 at 9 p.m.) in the BSL League Cup final after easily dispatching their semifinal opponents on Wednesday night.

 A sparse Malha Arena crowd didn’t witness too much drama in the semifinals, as Maccabi Tel Aviv defeated Barak Netanya 108-75, followed by a 94-74 win for Hapoel Jerusalem over Hapoel Gilboa/Galil.


Seven players reached double figures for Maccabi, led by Jeremy Pargo (left, in yellow) with 12 points and 12 assists. Romeo Travis did his best for Netanya, finishing with 22 points and 14 rebounds. The nightcap provided a slightly more competitive game, as Sam Clancy (right, in white) and Jerusalem only led by eight going into the fourth quarter. But Dion Dowell took over and finished with 25 points and five rebounds. Jack McClinton continued to lead the defending BSL champions, pouring in a team-high 18 points.
