First RoundEdit

Ten teams participated in the First Round. Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Holon and Hapoel Jerusalem were pre-qualified for the Quarterfinals and didn't play in the First Round.[2]

On October 15, 2018, The Israel Basketball Association (IBBA) disqualified all the teams from the Liga Leumit, aside from Maccabi Haifa, due to the league's lockout.[3]
