Hapoel Jerusalem joined Maccabi Tel Aviv in the BSL semifinals on Monday night, completing a 3-0 sweep of Hapoel Tel Aviv with a 77-73 overtime win at the Jerusalem Arena.
Jerusalem, the No. 2 seed, registered its 18th win from the past 20 games overall and came through the series with unexpected ease.
Despite being the No. 7 seed, Tel Aviv believed it could give Jerusalem a real run for its money and even win the series. However, its season ended in frustration on Monday after letting another tight game slip away.
