City of Gold kept a perfect record and the top spot in the Red and Dr. Murrays Israel Basketball League, earning a 75-69 victory over BMT Alumni. Reigning MVP Yisrael Feld led City of Gold, with a combination of pin-point location assists and slashing drives to the hoop, to pace a 10-point halftime lead.
BMT returned from the intermission with a fast-paced attack, climbing all the way back to tie the game, but City of Gold never trailed, regaining the initiative and pulling away for the win.
Sharing a piece of fist place are Wildes & Weinberg, KIVA, OJ and perennial contenders Lobos. KIVA edged Ashreinu 49-41, OJ were 60-35 winners against Holy Ballers, and, Lobos shut down the Atoms 50-13.
The last fixture of the weekend was a roller coaster ride between Wildes & Weinberg and Trumanaires. After a nip and tuck first half, W&W went on a tear to start the second half, led by Yisroel Solomon’s 20 points and 8 assists, and Matt Reich’s 17, including 5-for-8 shooting from beyond the arc. When Reich hit back-to-back treys to balloon the lead to 24 points, the game seemed over – until Gavriel Stark rallied the Trumanaires to an 18-4 run to turn the tide. However, Solomon and Reich stepped up, matching the Trumanaires attack bucket for bucket the rest of the way, to earn the 69-61 victory.
