Reigning-champion Rishon off to good start

Maccabi Rishon Lezion began its BSL title defense with a 66-60 victory over Hapoel Eilat on Monday night, while Meir Tapiro’s coaching career also got off to a winning start in Ashdod.

Rishon stunned Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem on its way to a historic championship last season, but underwent a complete overhaul during the summer, with only three seniors players returning for another year.
