The committee determined: Mistakes in favor of Maccabi in the Final Four – Sports 5 – Sports 5 – Sports 5 – Sports 5


Last week, Maccabi Tel Aviv won the third championship in a row and all in all, the Yellows put plate number 54 in the glorious cabinet. No one will be able to take the title for Yannis Sapropoulos ‘team anymore, but today (Tuesday) the professional committee of the referees’ association determined that Maccabi enjoyed serious mistakes in the semifinals and finals of the Final Four.

In the semi-final against Hapoel Gilboa, Galil Maccabi won a three-pointer by Scotty Wilbkin 2.7 seconds to go and went up to 78:81, but according to the professional committee, a “serious mistake was made that did not offend Gilboa (Yiftach Ziv) in the closing seconds”, even before the decisive move of Maccabi star.

In the final against Hapoel Rishon LeZion, in which Maccabi won 81:86, Daryl Monroe was sent off for a fifth offense, 35 seconds to go when the Yellows led by a point. Amara Studmeier as I recall scored the two penalty shots and from there the road to the plate was easier.

The committee also determined that Wilbkin’s dismissal in the quarterfinals against Hapoel Tel Aviv was correct and that there were no mistakes in the first derby in the playoff quarterfinals. The decisive one in the semi-final between Hapoel Jerusalem and Maccabi Rishon LeZion.
