Satisfaction with Hapoel Tel Aviv after the 78:92 win over Bnei Herzliya in the quarterfinals of the Winner Cup • The victory star received compliments: "When he is healthy he is a very high level player"

Hapoel Tel Aviv continues to impress.

Danny Franco's hot team met Bnei Herzliya last night (Saturday) to recreate the cup final in the quarter-finals of the Winner Cup and in the end came away with the victory 78:92, and took the ticket to the semi-finals where they will meet Hapoel Jerusalem on Wednesday.

The Reds looked great for this stage of the summer on the floor at the new Enerboks hall in Hadera, and at the end of a rhythmic and volatile game they managed to defeat the fighting group of Oren Aharoni.

"We had a lot of ups and downs, which is a natural thing that characterizes teams at the beginning of the season. I'm glad that we knew how to recover and come back better even if we were in less good minutes. We got a lot of output today from our five foreigners alongside the Israelis, who were very good," noted Hapoel Tel Aviv coach Danny Franco at the end.

In the team, we noted the defense, which the players presented in the last quarter, which stopped the cup holder at only 14 points.

"I'm very happy with how they defended in the second half. The defense is something we'll see throughout the season in the team. We made a few stops in defense that gave us the difference and they kept it until the end," Franco added.

The club praised the ability of the pair of guards, Xavier Manford and Jacob Brown, who combined for 35 points and led the Reds to victory.

"When both are good we are good, even when we beat Monaco they were both exceptional. They have been playing together for a while in preparation and they are very important to us," Franco concluded.

Also, the team praised the performance of Brown, who contributed 19 points along with 9 assists and 8 rebounds.

"When Jacoben is healthy, he is a very high level player, we will have to keep him healthy. We are happy that he is with us and he helps us capture the team," said the club.

Bar Timor, who recorded a great game with 12 points, summed up the match: "We managed to make some important stops in defense that were decisive, we have a good and deep team with a good team. We are still consolidating, but the direction is good."

Now the Reds will get several days to recover and prepare and on Wednesday they will meet the renewed Hapoel Jerusalem of Alexander Dzi'kic for an intriguing Reds match in the semi-finals of the Winner Cup.
