A look back at the 2011-12 Division II season and transfer news - May 31, 2012

Stefan
Sappenberghs

The 2011-12 Division II season turned out to be a very interesting one. With Gembo BBC as final play-off winner, great basketball action on all courts during the regular season, always more Belgian talents showing their skills and well-deserved eurobasket.com awards granted last month (see http://www.eurobasket.com/Belgium/basketball.asp?NewsID=270239), the Division II season ended in a brilliant way. A few transfers have already been set and many transfer rumors are also filtering.

First of all, let us have a look back at the playoff series which proved again that the level in Belgian Division II is at its best. Against surprising play-off invitee Point Chaud Sprimont of Coach Pascal Horrion, regular season's number one team Bent Schoenen Waregem had a hard time in the quarter-final series (best-of-three). The men of Coach Horrion pushed Sven Declercq 's guys to a third decisive game which Bent Schoenen Waregem won only by a 6-point margin on April 15th (75-69). CEP Fleurus of President Giovanni Mureddu also made it to the semi-finals but had to go through a third game against Sint-Niklase Condors. Royal Excelsior Brussels got rid of BBC Kangoeroes Boom and Gembo BBC qualified against last season's finalist Essor Charleroi, in two straight games in both series. The semi-final series were intense: Bent Schoenen Waregem defeated Excelsior 78-85 away in the first game of their series and left no chance to the Brussels' team of Coach Serge Crevecoeur a few days later (82-68). In the other semi-final series, Gembo BBC had to spend much energy to get rid of Coach Tom Poppe's CEP Fleurus in game three (86-75). Coach Stefan Sappenberghs' Gembo squad looked strong and well balanced through the whole season and won the title against BS Waregem after a great performance away in the third and decisive game of the final series. Gembo had won the first game at home 98-70 on April 24th, BS Waregem made it last longer by defeating Gembo 86-78 on April 27th and Gembo of top scorer Domien Loubry (186-G-85) eventually defeated host team BS Waregem 72-88 on April 29th.

The Ethias League will go on with only 8 pro teams next season and looks more and more like a closed league. Next Division II season shall look like the true Belgian Championship again as most clubs will focus on the will to give chances to young (or less young) Belgian talents, helped in some cases by few experienced Bosman or foreign players. Optima Gent, despite a nice 12-20 record in Ethias League this season, will not compete in the top domestic professional competition anymore and should be involved in Division II action in 2012-13. They will nevertheless lose some of their players: Lionel Bosco (176-PG-81, agency: Court Side) will still play in Ethias League and has signed a contract with Belgacom Liege Basket, the US players Michael Jenkins (191-G-86, college: Winthrop), Michael Haynes (203-F/C-81, college: Fordham), La'Shard Anderson (185-G-89, college: Boise St.) or Graham Brown (205-C-84, college: Michigan) will probably find a job elsewhere, etc. Otherwise, some transfers have already been fixed. Tom Poppe leaves CEP Fleurus to join BBC Kangoeroes Boom where experienced Belgian players Witse Van Schil and Mitch Gorremans (ex-CEP Fleurus too) as well as Dieter Souveryns (ex-Essor Charleroi) have also been hired. CEP Fleurus' policy to encourage young players will go on. Paul Vervaeck will be back at the Salle Andre Robert after a stay in Luxemburg and a four-year experience with BBC Kangoeroes Boom. He will have a mission to train and educate young talents, including newcomer Terry Deroover (180-G-91). Amaury Marion (196-F-91), who left CEP Fleurus in the middle of last season to study abroad in the Saint Louis, MO area, shall be back in the CEP roster in 2012-13. Sint-Niklase Condors could welcome Sebastien Vermeulen (207-F/C-81), Dave d'Haens (210-C-81) and Elias Lasisi (192-G/F-92, his transfer to Stella Artois Leuven Bears in Ethias League has been announced in Belgian Sport/Foot Magazine and he should be able to play for the Condors thanks to a double license) and will be built around young players Benjamin Bogaert (196-F-86), Dennis Bovoy, Bjorn De Beukeleer (185-G/F-90), Joao-Pedro De Decker, Jeroen Gerlo (193-C-85), Ibrahim Johnson (189-G/F-89) and Niels Maris (196-F-89). In Sint-Jan Basket Antwerpen, ex-Optima Gent player Senne Geukens (190-G-83) has been announced and four young talents have decided to join the team under new coach Steve Cornelis: Vincent Kesteloot (193-F-95), Leroy Anthonis, Brett Hartshorne (201-C/F-92) and Naim El Khounchar (188-F-94). Lars Tielens (193-F/G-88), Dave d'Haens, Filip De Wachter and Herve Djoumbi (207-F/C-77) have decided to leave Sint-Jan. On May 31st, SudPresse announced that Excelsior Brussels hired former Belgian Lion Xavier Collette (185-PG-85, agency: LBM Management) whose contract with Ethias League's club Belgacom Liege Basket was not reconducted. He will most probably replace guard Nathan Hervelle (Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket forward Axel's brother) who decided to leave the Belgian capital's squad. Royal Excelsior Brussels would like to build a very competitive team able to join the Ethias League at some stage in the future.

Here are the Division II teams for the 2012-13 season: Bent Schoenen Waregem, Gembo BBC, CEP Fleurus, BBC Kangoeroes Boom, Royal Aera Excelsior Brussels, Sint-Niklase Condors, Point Chaud Sprimont, Sint-Jan Basket Antwerpen, Belfius Mons-Hainaut II, BC Cuva Houthalen 2000, Basket Tongeren, Haantjes Oudenaarde, Antwerp Giants II, Essor Charleroi and Optima Gent. To be noted: BC Cuva Houthalen and Basket Tongeren are historic clubs which were involved in Belgian Division I in the 1970s and 1980s. Two cities with a long basketball tradition!

Round one of the regular 2012-13 Division II season has been fixed on September 7th, 8th and 9th. The regular season will end on April 14th. The last game of the 2013 Division II playoffs is scheduled on May 5th.

As far as the 2011-12 eurobasket.com awards are concerned, we had five coaches on our list for 'Coach of the Year': Pascal Horrion, Sven Declercq, Stefan Sappenberghs and Tom Poppe. We could only choose one coach. I had picked Pascal Horrion because Point Chaud Sprimont was the real surprise last season and unexpectedly played the playoffs. The only choice my eurobasket.com's colleague Peter Buyse had doubts about was the one for 'Coach of the Year'. Despite the fact that Bent Schoenen Waregem lost the finals to Gembo BBC, the work done by Sven Declercq over the past couple of years and their number one finish of the regular season warranted Declercq coach of the year honors indeed. We eventually decided to grant a 'Co-Coach of the Year' award. 'Sappe', Tom Poppe and Serge Crevecoeur also deserve a special mention for their excellent 2011-12 season.

We could have added special mentions for players like Lorenzo Giancaterino (190-F/G-90, Belfius Mons-Hainaut II), Mitchel Gorremans (190-G-85, CEP Fleurus), Stan Naudts (195-F-86, Bent Schoenen Waregem), Stijn Dhondt (197-F-79, college: Boston U., Bent Schoenen Waregem), Joris De Schepper (187-G/F-83, Excelsior) and Dieter Souveryns (Essor Charleroi).
