Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv will go on the road to Ashdod as they'll face Hapoel Holon on Monday evening (21:00, Live on Sport5 - channel 55). The Purple & Yellow couldn't host in their home court Holon Toto Arena, and as a result, the Yellow & Blue will travel southern than expected for their 4th top group game. Giannis Sfairopoulos's squad will recover after the fall in Rishon Le'Zion. On the other end, Amit Sherf's team is still looking for their first win since the break.
Maccabi beat Holon 103:65 in the last meeting between the squads, which took place in Menora Mivtachim Arena. Deni Avdija led the Yellow & Blue scorers with 18 points, Jake Cohen contributed with 16 and Amar'e Stoudemire added 15 points. Jimmy Hall led the losing squad with 19 points.
Elijah Bryant, Scottie Wilbekin, Jake Cohen, Yovel Zoosman, Angelo Caloiaro, Othello Hunter, Sandy Cohen, Deni Avdija, Dori Sahar, Yonatan Atias, Amar'e Stoudemire and Quincy Acy (limited participant) were included in the final roster towards the game. John DiBartolomeo and Omri Casspi will remain absent due to injuries.
Over the years, the teams faced each other 117 times as Maccabi holds a commanding 103:14 record. Eleven of Holon's wins were as host in comparison to Maccabi 46 victories as visitors. The first matchup goes back to July 1953 in Holon, as Maccabi won 64:22 with Abraham Shneior leading the way with 23 points, Ralph Klein scored 18, and Zacharia Ofri added 13.
