Israel's no. 1 seed? GreenTops Netanya - Nov 6, 2012

Danny Franco
After four rounds of Israeli hoops, the no. 1 seed is ... Maccabi Tel Aviv?

Nope. Guess again. Jerusalem?

No sir. Rishon, Galil/Gilboa, Holon?

None of the above. The top ranked team in Israel and the only squad with a perfect 4-0 record is ... GreenTops Netanya.

Although they're yet to battle this season's varsity teams,
Netanya recorded double-digit victories against last year's finalist Maccabi Ashdod and Elitzur Ashkelon, two of the current bottom ranked teams. At home, Netanya overcame favorites Hapoel Jerusalem, and successfully squeezed out a dramatic buzzer-beating road victory against Bnei Herzliya.

How did Netanya mesh?

Over the summer, after losing 10-of-12 players and all of the team's foreigners to higher European salaries, head coach Danny Franco (Agency: Avi Zilberman) was left with a relatively small budget for off-season recruits.

Surprisingly, Franco managed to win over multiple underrated players, including a pair of Israeli league veterans in big man Marco Killingsworth (Agency: Interperformances) and combo-guard Ramel Bradley.

Killingsworth, who first played for
Netanya his debut season in Israel in 2009-10, is reluctant about the idea of leaving Holy Land hoops (Killingsworth has played for Maccabi Haifa, Galil/Gilboa, Ashkelon and two stints with Netanya).

Though he tends to be a defensive liability, Killingsworth's 235-pounds of muscle allows him to power his way to 19.3 points, 7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, including a season high 21 points in last night's dub.

Ex-Kentucky guard Ramel Bradley was signed after being waived by Jerusalem despite holding a guaranteed contract. After hooping in Croatia and France, Bradley recently entered his third repeated season in Israel, the previous two being with Ashdod and Jerusalem.

Bradley played a key roll in
Netanya's early-season success posting 19 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists in the team's season opener. He would later complete his revenge against Jerusalem behind a three point play and a pair of free throws down the stretch en route to a 15 points, 7 rebounds and 3 dimes outing.

Swingman Raymar Morgan, who hasn't played since December 2011 was brought in but has yet to debut this season and is still overcoming a knee injury.

Franco would then surprisingly ink high-flying journeyman Deron Washington, who split the last couple of season between the first and second Spanish leagues. Washington is one rebound shy of impressive double-double averages tailing 11.5 points and 9.3 boards including 3.8 assists per.


Netanya's final winning-puzzle piece is another ex-Spanish Division II player in former Rutgers forward Jonathan Mitchell, who's been a pleasant surprise thus far. Mitchell's top performance came against Bnei Herzliya with 22 points on 8-12 shooting, adding 6 rebounds.

Netanya's Israelis are also important contributors as veteran shooter Yehu Orland (Agency: Ronsport) nets 11.5 points on 86% free throw shooting, while 25-year-old Israeli guard Eyal Shulman ranks second on the team in assists with 3.8 per game.

  




Orr Leumi
Orr Leumi is a newcomer at Bnei Hertzeliyya - 2 hours ago

Bnei Hertzeliyya (Winner League) strengthened their roster with addition of 20-year old swingman Orr Leumi (192-96) from Hapoel Tel-Aviv. Leumi ended the last season at Maccabi Fox Tel-Aviv. He helped them to end the regular season as a second best team in the league. They also advanced to the league semifinals. Great season indeed as he was voted to Israeli National League All-Star Game. But the most of that year he spent at Ironi Ashkelon (National League) where in 19 games he recorded...   [read more]
