Supposedly, yesterday was the final day of the Israel Women's D1 Regular season.
Six teams go to the playoffs. The playoffs start March 5th with a post-season round robin. I don't know if the round robin is used to determine which teams are the finalists, or if the round robin is used by itself to determine a champion.
The upcoming round-robin games for Maccabi Ramat Hen this week:
Thursday: Home vs. Maccabi Ashdod
Sunday: Away vs. Electra Ramat Hasharon
I don't have a boxscore for Maccabil Ashdod's 102-89 win over Maccabi Ramat Hen, but here are a few facts about it:
1) The win knocked Maccabi Ramat Hen to 14-4, into a tie for second place. Agh. Here are the final standings of the top six teams:

Maccabi Ramat Hen 14-4
Raanana Hertzeliya 14-4
Elizur Ramla 13-5
Maccabi Ashdod 11-7
Elizur Holon 9-9
2) Ramat Hen lost LaToya Pringle to some sort of knee injury. We don't know how serious the injury is yet.
3) From the website, here are the highlights:
