The season started with a fantastic game on Sunday. There has been a run of talented young Israeli players emerging in recent seasons, but none may be more promising than Yarden Garzon and she paced Maccabi Ramat Hen in a 92-86 win over Kelsey Bone and Elitzur Holon. NaJai Pollard had a good game for Herzliya, but Elitzur Ramla won 76-62. After years without promotion and relegation, Elitzur Tel Aviv was promoted and played on Monday, but being down an import made it hard even with a good game from Kiara Leslie as Bernice Mosby and Maccabi Haifa won 78-66. Shatori Walker-Kimbrough led Ramat Hasharon and Ally Rosenblum made her professional debut in their 84-78 win over Khadijiah Cave and Hapoel Petah Tikva. Maccabi Ashdod was down an import and good games from Victoria Vivians and Allison Hightower were not enough in an 80-60 loss to Hapoel Rishon Lezion, which was led by Dekeiya Cohen and Jennie Simms.
