"We kept our foot on the gas pedal for the whole game"

Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv defeated Hapoel Eilat 97:76 on the road to advance to the State Cup Quarter Finals. The Yellow & Blue don't have much time to rest in the next two weeks, as they host Hapoel Be'er Sheva on Tuesday, on Thursday they will play Kirolbet Baskonia in Spain, and on Saturday they visit Maccabi Ashdod. 

"I want to congratulate our players, we were really focused and concentrated", Said Coach Giannis Sfairopoulos after advancing to the State Cup Quarter-Finals. "We started really well, controlled it, and we were up throughout the whole game. The most important thing is that we took out Ben Shimol defensively, and I think that was the key. When we found our rhythm offensivly, in the second half, we took a double-digit lead, and from there, it was much easier.

"We had a great offensive game, scoring 57 points in the second half, and that shows from our good defense we score on offense better. We had a good team game, and that's how we need to continue", Concluded Sfairopoulos.

"Winning is the best medicine, I thought we played really well tonight, kept our foot on the gas pedal for the whole game and slowly wore them down", Said Jake Cohen who finished the night with 15 points and 3 rebounds. "For some of the new guys that are new to Maccabi, you wouldn't know how important this game is because it feels like another one, and it's easy to get caught in that trap. But it's the cup and its a single-elimination, and as a team, we responded really well to that".

"This game is sandwiched between the EuroLeague and the Domestic league, so it's a tough situation, but we handled it really well", Added on Cohen. "I think we just need to keep our focus mentally, this year we are a really professional team from top to bottom, it has been a pleasure for me to be a part of it. I'm not worried, but if we keep our focus, working, our head down and not get caught up with what happened in the past or what we have in the future and stay focused on the present, we will be alright".
