Jerusalem, Rishon to joust in intriguing final

Hapoel Jerusalem looks to claim its second straight BSL championship when it faces Maccabi Rishon Lezion in the Final Four final on Thursday night, with Maccabi Tel Aviv’s season once more ending in disappointment.

Jerusalem defeated Hapoel Eilat 82-78 in the second Final Four semifinal at the Jerusalem Arena on Monday night after Rishon shocked Tel Aviv 71-69, with the yellow-and-blue being knocked out in the semifinals for a second straight year.

The final will also be held in Jerusalem, an advantage afforded to Hapoel after it finished the regular season in first place.
