On Thursday afternoon the (3) TABC Storm will take on the (14) Fuchs Mizrachi Mayhem in the Tier I Qualifier. After going 10-4 in the regular season, TABC suffered a disappointing two point loss in their semifinal matchup with the (1) SAR Sting. Fuchs Mizrachi went 15-4 in the regular season and are fresh off of a win in the Tanzman tournament. The Mayhem won every game in the tournament and star player Ephraim Blau won tournament MVP.
Leading the way for Mayhem are Blau, Netanel Jacobs, and twins Ari and Yoni Jacoby among others. Blau and Yoni Jacoby stand at 6’3", while Jacobs is known as a shooter. The Storm are led by point guard Eli Saks, and big men Yis Kaminetzky and Netanel Benloulou. Shmuel Yablok is a consistent shooter for the Storm and Harry Orlinsky rounds out what will likely be the starting five for TABC.
The winner of this game will advance to the Tier I bracket, while the loser will move on to a Tier II Qualifier and face off with (19) Maimonides.
This Tier I Qualifier will take place at 4:00 PM in the Max Stern Athletic Center. The game will be broadcast by MacsLive; you can watch live here.
