After being beaten in Ramat Gan with a particularly lacklustre squad, without coach Aleksandar Dzikic and regular foreigners, the Reds are now looking for a maiden league victory this season.

The signed Ben Carter will make his debut in the next game.

The hosts got off to a good start, with Muriel Lutati giving it 8:17 after five minutes. Marcellus Arlington made it 13-27, and at the end of a terrific first quarter by Afula, she led17-32. Spencer Weiss took a 19-43 lead at the start of the second quarter.
