Basketball: Maccabi Tel Aviv claims seventh straight State Cup

Even when all else fails, it seems Maccabi Tel Aviv always has the State Cup.

Maccabi won its seventh straight cup at Yad Eliyahu Arena on Thursday night, beating Maccabi Ashdod 83-75 to bring some cheer to the club in the midst of one of its worst seasons ever.

The yellow-and-blue entered this week on the back of yet another dejecting failure, being knocked out of the Eurocup after also suffering a humbling exit in the Euroleague earlier this season. It dropped to defeats in its three previous games, including by a club-record 35 points to Maccabi Haifa in the BSL, yet somehow, Maccabi yet again found a way to win in the cup.
