Basketball: Winner Cup final to feature Maccabi Tel Aviv – Hapoel Eilat grudge match

Maccabi Tel Aviv will have its first opportunity to avenge last season’s shock playoff semifinal exit at the hands of Hapoel Eilat when the two meet in the final of the pre-season Winner Cup at the Drive-In Arena in Tel Aviv on Monday night.

Eilat came back from a 0-2 deficit in last season’s semis to claim a 3-2 series win and send Maccabi crashing out before the BSL final for the first time since 1993.

Both teams have undergone wholesale changes since that memorable series, especially Maccabi, which advanced to the final with a 95-89 triumph over Maccabi Rishon Lezion on Saturday.
