Elitzur Eito Ashkelon (Hebrew: אליצור "איתו" אשקלון) is a professional basketball team based in Ashkelon in south west Israel. The club currently plays in Israeli National League.[1] The team is named after the late Itamar Sharvit (nicknamed "Eito"), who has been Elizur Ashkelon's maintenance manager for 18 years.
