It was the Final of the Cup on Thursday in a game that may be a preview of what to expect in the rest of the postseason. Maccabi Ashdod rolled to the 70-49 win over Maccabi Ramat Hen as Alysha Clark took a leading role instead of just deferring to the balanced nature of the squad. Kayla Thornton continued her great season individually, but it was not enough for her team. Both teams join the other two remaining teams in contention for the league championship with the playoffs set to start on Monday. Maccabi Ashdod, which has spent most of the season trying to find a rhythm with its talented roster, may be showing signs of rounding into shape at the crucial point in the season.
