“Our defense was key as we spoke about stopping Diante Garrett and Chavaughn Lewis.” Nes Ziona coach Elad Hasin explained. “We did a decent job on that and we held Kiryat Ata to only 28 second half points, but we still have plenty to improve on and I think we can play even better. However, it’s always good to go to a break with a win.”
