History made as Maccabi men 3-peat in Premier League

Posted: 14-Aug-2019 by Basketball

The Maccabi Lakers have made history winning the Premier League title for the third straight season, overwhelming their second placed opponents the Brewers 112-85.

Teams exchanged baskets early on, before some early buckets to star point guard Marcel Ninio gave the Lakers a 30-23 buffer. Some great team play including two treys from the ever-ready Zach Eherenfeld helped Maccabi to a healthy 69-42 lead at the half.

The buffer quickly pushed out over thirty points as player-coach Ben Knight was having his way with the opposition, knocking down three-pointers, fade-aways and even threw down a slam dunk. But the Brewers worked hard to bring the margin back to 94-75 with under 10 minutes to play, to give them a sniff of an unlikely comeback. But Maccabi was having none of it, and put their foot on the gas once again going on a 10-2 run to put the result beyond doubt. A Josh Cohen three-pointer putting the final touches on the win, as Maccabi ran out 27 point winners.

Top scorers: M Ninio 34, B Knight 33, I Faithfull 15, J Cohen 12, Z Ehrenfeld 10

Maccabi Premier League Lakers team: Anatoly Bose, Josh Cohen, Zach Ehrenfeld, Greg Shapiro, Marcel Ninio, Ben Knight, Indiana Faithfull
