A superb finish was all that Holon needed to gain the upper hand in the Finals.

Tyrus McGee scored 23 points and Joe Ragland added 18 points, nine assists plus six rebounds as Hapoel Holon beat Bnei Herzilya 78 – 71 on the road to take a 1-0 lead in the Israeli Winner League Finals.

Chinanu Onuaku’s strong double-double (18 points, 20 rebounds) wasn’t enough for Herzilya that fell apart in the last lap of the game.

Holon dominated the final period 24 – 13 to get the win. Herzilya had come back from a 33 – 39 halftime deficit to lead 58 – 54 in the beginning of the fourth quarter but their opponents had the final say.

The difference between the two sides was vast especially on the 3-pointers, with Herzilya shooting 3-24 and Holon finishing with 14-36 from beyond the arc.
