It was a quick turnaround for Maccabi Ramat Hen as they hosted the first game of the finals and had a solid start. Maccabi Ashdod had more rest and surged to a big lead and the 69-53 win. They will now look to put themselves in a commanding position when they host the next game on Sunday, knowing that winning their home games will be enough to defend their title. The visitors got another big game from Tiffany Hayes as they leaned on their import trio more than usual.
