Manama crush Najma - by Yousef Ahmed

TITLE hopefuls Manama got their Zain Bahrain Basketball League campaign off to a rousing start last night with a 101-66 pummelling of an overmatched Al Najma side at the Zain Basketball Arena in Um Al Hassam. The victors used a total team effort to come away with the lopsided result. Star Bahraini guard Bader Abdulla Malabes and American professional Jawan Bailey (203-F, agency: Union Sports, college: Incarnate World) top-scored for their team with 17 points apiece. Bailey also in his debut in the BBA was one of the most dominant all around performances for any import in week one with an amazing triple double 17 points 12 rebounds and a soul crushing 10 blocks.

Fadlallah Abbas had a game-high 21 markers to spearhead Najma, who were playing without an import while already being the weaker side. Manama put on a clinic of outside shooting and balanced scoring in the game. They dominated from the opening tip, and they showed no mercy against their overwhelmed opponents. Manama were so much in control that they virtually had the win in the bag by half-time, when they were comfortably ahead 52-29. It was a dream start for Manama yesterday, as they are being considered as one of the favourites to claim the league crown this year. They have a star-studded squad on paper, filled with no less than 6 members of the Bahrain national team led by Star big Man Ahmed Al Mutawa (199-F/C-81, agency: Low Country Sports, college: Broward CC), wings Malabes, Mahmood Ghuloom, Hassan Nourus and Mohammed Hassan, and lightning quick point guard Ahmed Abdulaziz.

Al Mutawa played in his first game back with Manama yesterday. He signed back to his former club this past off-season after previously playing in Kuwait. Al Mutawa was the high-profile signing of the season. He scored 15 points, 10 rebounds, 3 Blocks, 6 assists and 5 steals in only 27 min of play. His Dominance in Bahrain league will be Manama biggest Asset.

Al Mutawa, Hassan and Abdulaziz each played key roles for Manama in their win last night. Also doing well for the squad were Hassan Nairouz, Hani Alam, Mohammed Najaf and Omran Abdulredha. With the result, Manama joined Isa Town and Nuwaidrat as winners of their first league games so far this season. They last won the coveted championship in 2006 - a year they claimed their unprecedented 10th straight crown. But since then, they have found it difficult to rise once again to the summit, with the emergence of chief rivals Al Ahli and Muharraq. They are hoping to restore their championship glory this year.

Manama were previously the most successful basketball club of Bahrain with 16 league titles to their name. But Ahli passed them last season, when they secured back-to-back championships to bring their historic title total to 17. League action continues tonight with the final two games of the first week of the 2010-'11 season. At 6pm, Ahli begin their quest for a third successive crown when they play lowly Bahrain Club, who have not won a single game in the national basketball scene for the past several years. That will be followed by Muharraq taking on Al Ettihad, in a game tipping off at 7.45pm. Week two gets underway on Sunday.

Lazar Simonovic claims Balkan League SA weekly honour - by Eurobasket News
Montenegrin Lazar Simonovic (185-G-82) had an amazing evening in the last round for BC Zrinjski Mik Company Mostar and that's him to receive a Player of the Week award for round 2.
The 28-year old guard had the game-high 23 points adding two rebounds and six assists for Zrinjski MC in his team's victory, helping them to edge out Ulcijn (0-2) 82-79. Zrinjski MC won its first game, but it's just the very beginning of the season and it's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Simonovic had a remarkable 60.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be Zrinjski MC's top player in his first season with the team. Simonovic has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (3rd best: 23.0ppg), assists (4th best: 6.0apg) and averages solid 60.0% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 32-year old Stefan Georgiev (206-C/F-78) of Levski Sofia. Georgiev impressed basketball fans with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. He led Levski to comfortable win outscoring Svjetlost (0-2) 94-60. His team has good start of the season. They won both games so far. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Georgiev is one of the most experienced players at Levski and has a reputation of the team's most reliable player.

The third best performed player last round was American Lance Sullivan (185-G) of KK Mornar Basket Bar. Sullivan scored 19 points. He was a key player of Mornar Bar, leading his team to a 79-71 win against Balkan (0-1). Mornar Bar has a good start of the season. But there were just 2 games played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Sullivan also has a very good start of the season with very strong stats. Sullivan has a great season in BIB. After only 2 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.5ppg (9th best).

Frederik Nielsen out for 10-12 weeks - by Thomas Soltau
Horsholm suffered a huge blow a few days ago, as NT point guard Frederik Nielsen (180-G-88) went down in a practice session.

The injury turned out to more than a sprain, as further damage to the young guard's ligaments was found. The Horsholm team is very dependent on their floorleader, Nielsen often times play all 40minutes, and so with him out of the lineup the team will have a big challenge trying to fill the gab in the backcourt.

The first result of Nielsen's missing presence and leadership came yesterday, as Horsholm suffered a loss their road game in Aarhus against Aabyhoej.

Eurobasket Denmark wishes the talented guard a speedy recovery.

Euroleague round 2 best performance: Erazem Lorbek - by Eurobasket News
Slovenian power forward Erazem Lorbek (209-F/C-84) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Regal FC Barcelona, receiving a Player of the Week award for round 2.
The 26-year old player was the main contributor (19 points, five rebounds and four assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Cholet 84-77. Regal Barca stays perfect in Group C, while Cholet still looks for the first win. It's Lorbek's second year at Regal Barca and it's hard to imagine this team without him. In the next round, Barca will meet Fenerbahce Ulker. Cholet will also play at home, but against Lietuvos Rytas.

The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old American Jamont Gordon (193-G/F-87) of CSKA Moscow. Gordon had a very good evening with 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Bad luck as CSKA lost that game 60-74 to Panathinaikos (2-0). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Gordon is a newcomer at CSKA, but is already on of their leading players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Brian Roberts (188-G-85, agency: Arik Krayn Services) of Brose Baskets Bamberg. Roberts scored 23 points and grabbed five rebounds. He was a key player of Brose Baskets, leading his team to a 73-61 win against Olympiakos. Both teams have 1-1 record now in Group B. Roberts has a very solid season. In 2 games he averaged 18.5 points.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Darius Washington (188-G-85) of Lottomatica - 20 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Marvis Thornton (194-G-77) of Efes Pilsen - 19 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Kerem Tunceri (190-G-79) of Efes Pilsen - 16 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Sofoklis Schortsanitis (206-C-85) of Maccabi T-A - 24 points and 5 rebounds
8. Nathan Jawai (207-C-86) of Partizan - 15 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Juan Carlos Navarro (192-G-80) of Regal Barca - 15 points and 6 assists
10. Dusko Savanovic (204-F/C-83) of Valencia - 15 points and 8 rebounds

He spoke with eurobasket before the game against The Telekom Baskets Bonn on October 30th.

How well has the team digested the tough loss in Bremerhaven?

Well we were disappointed with the loss but we had to get over real quick cause we had to prepare for Oldenburg the very next day.

What did the team learn from this loss?

I think we took more positives than negatives from the game. For one we showed that we can compete against a quality team on the road and we also showed that were capable of winning if we are able to finish out a game for a full 40 minutes.

The team has little time to prepare for Bonn. What has been the main focus in practice?

We will focus on what we need to do to be successful against Bonn. We will go through our normal routine at practice and just get prepared like any other game.

Bonn has had a slow start. Does that surprise you in anyway?

Bonn is a great team and it is still early in the season. They are a good team and a team that no one takes lightly throughout the league. They will come hard to play and compete just like any other team in the BBL.

How would you describe the Dru Joyce-Nick Wise point guard match up?

Fast and competitive. Both players are fairly quick and play a major role on both sides of the ball. It will be interesting to see how everything unfolds between the two players.

Bonn has injuries and a smaller rotation. Is this a advantage for TBB Trier?

You cant overlook anyone on Bonn's rotation. They are a good team and we will not take anyone lightly on there team. They are dealing with injuries right now but we wont change anything about what we need to do. We just need to play hard and put together a whole game and just not playing good in spurts.

What will be the key to winning?

I think the key to winning is our defense. We have played solid defense the whole season but we dont always finish and teams have been able to stay in the game by us giving up a lot of 2nd chance points. If we can improve that we will have a solid chance of winning the game.

Were you surprised that Miami Heat scored only 9 points in the first quarter at had 30 points at halftime despite Bosh, James and Wade?

I was surprised but at the same time they did play the Eastern Conference champions from a year ago who have a great chemistry and been together for a while with there own big 3 well actually 4. But they will be alright its a long season and I am sure that as the season goes along they will dominate!!!

Thanks John for the chat.

Travis Walton (Ratiopharm Ulm) Pregame Thoughts To Derby Game Against The Walter Tigers Tuebingen October 30th - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber

Travis Walton (188-G-87, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Michigan St.) is a 23 year old 187cm point guard from Lima, Ohio. He is playing his first season with Ratiopharm Ulm. He played at Michigan State from 2005-2009 where he served as team captain for three consecutive years, being the 3rd in history of Michigan State school to do that. Led the Big 10 in assist to turnover ratio 2.4 to 1 and broke Magic Johnson's career assist record at Michigan State. Walton possesses great toughness, strength and leadership skills and is an exceptional defender. Last season he played shortly for Lugano Tigers (Switzerland-LNA, starting five), left in Dec.'09: 13 games: 8.9ppg, 1.2rpg, Assists-5 (4.9apg), 1.5spg, FGP: 52.6%, 3PT: 33.3%, FT: 85.7% before returning back to Michigan State to help the coaching staff. Some achievements that he has received were Big Ten Tournament Semifinals -06, 08, 09, Big Ten All-Defensive Team -07, 09, NCAA Sweet 16 -08, Big Ten Regular Season Champion -09, and Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year -09. He spoke to eurobasket beforethe derby game against Ratiopharm Ulm October 30th.

The team celebrated their first win against BG Goettingen last weekend. Why did it take so long for the team to win their first game?

I wish I had the answer to that but I dont. We had some very tough opponents our first couple games but we were in every game till the end. I think all the teams that beat us are playoff teams and teams that had very good seasons last year so to start your schedule out like that is tough for any team.

How much could the self confidence of the team grow after this win?

I think it has grown a lot. Its was good to get are first win and get the taste of winning in are mouth. So hopefully this can be a stepping stone for us to continue to improve.

The next game is against the Walter Tigers Tuebingen in a derby clash. It is a derby game and the atmosphere will probably be very good in Tuebingen. What do you remember most about Michigan-Michigan State games and the atmosphere?

I think just like the Michigan State and Michigan game the derby clash is bigger than almost any game we play just because of the history of the two teams. No matter the records of the team everyone is always exicted when two rivals face each other. Its a must see for people who dont even watch basketball all the time. Its for bragging rights.

What has been the focus in practice this week?

Focus has been the same just to come in and work hard and try to improve every day. We are a new and young team so we have to use every day as a building day to get better individually and as a team. Of course the intensity been up but its been the same as all the other weeks.

Tuebingen has a very strong playmaker with Bane Rathkovica. How excited are you to be playing against him?

Right now Rathkovica is maybe the best play maker in the league with the stats he is putting up. To average 13 points and 8 assist in this league is very tough so you have to be a very good player to do that.

How is your relationship to German National player Per Guenter? How do you too compliment each other best?

Our relationship is very good. Per is a good player who is also having a very good year right now. Right now I feel we both have been doing a great job of running the team when each other come out the game. Im learning a lot from him right now so my job is to continue to improve and give quality minutes When I come in the game.

Were you surprised that the Miami Heat lost their first game in Boston and that they only managed 30 points at halftime?

No the season is very early. D Wade has only played 3 miutesn the whole preseason and Boston looked and played like a veteran team. There wont be to many games where D Wade and Chris Bosh both dont play well. They will be very good when they figure everything out. I say give them a month and ask me this question again.

What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

Game of Tuebingen. Im a basketball junky..haha..Got to be a student of the game to improve.

Thanks Travis for the chat.

He sat down and spoke with Eurobasket before the game with The Deutsche Bank Skyliners on October 30th.

The Artland Dragons have started 4-2 this season. How happy have you been with the start?

I'm not satisfied because I don't like losing games. But I think its an ok start since we didn't have our whole team for the pre-season and we still have some problems with injuries.

The team lost a nail bitter in Bamberg, a game that they could of won. The team seems to be on early. How well formed is the team chemistry after 6 games?

I think we have improved and are making progress as a team. We have good team chemistry and are looking forward to getting Nate Peavy and Florian Hartenstein back as soon as possible.

What has been the biggest strength of coach Stefan Koch in the early going?

I think he is a great coach, because he's able to analyze the game very well and he points out the little mistakes we make in games. These small mistakes make the difference between winning and losing.

The next game is against The Deutsche Bank Skyliners. What memory stands out in your mind of previous games that you had during your first tenure from 2004-2007?

The game that stands out is the 4th game at home in the '04-'05 playoffs. We were down 3 with 25 seconds to go. We get a steal and Marko Bulic pulls up for a 3 pointer on a fast break and makes it. We end up winning that game to force game 5.

What is your overall impression of Frankfurt this season?

I think Frankfurt has a good team. Unfortunately, they have had some injuries early on in the season.

What has been your early impression of Ibekwe? Could he become one of top defenders in BEKO BBL this season?

Ekene is doing a great job for us on both ends of the floor. He's extremely athletic and can definitely become a top defender in the BBL.

What will be key in winning at home against Frankfurt?

I think the key will be keeping a high defensive intensity for 40 mins. It will definitely be a tough game.

Were you surprised how Miami Heat only scored 9 points after one quarter and had only 30 points at halftime? How quickly will this team gell?

I was a little bit surprised, because they have a lot of offensive weapons. I think it will take a little time for them to gel, because they didnt play the entire pre-season with their full lineup.

What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

To be honest my little son has kept me so busy, I haven't had time for a long movie. Actually, the last dvd I've seen was 'Your Baby Can Read'.

Thanks Bryan for the chat.


WCAA Giants Hold Off ABC Amsterdam - by Sanders Jackson
Wednesday night in Dutch Basketball League action, WCAA Giants shook off its recent doldrums to hold off fiesty ABC Amsterdam 86-76. It was a nailbiter until the end, within the last six minutes of the game after a Jessy Voorn three-pointer to put the guests ahead 69-66, Giants lead guard Jessie Kimbrough took matters in his own hands, leading the charge that gave the Giants back the momentum advantage. After an earlier score from himself and Tyler Tiedeman, Kimbrough would score five points in a span of 16 seconds to make it all-she-wrote for ABC Amsterdam. Tim Blue would led WCAA Giants with 21 pts., 10 rebounds and also had (ouch!) 10 turnovers. Kimbrough added 20 pts., 5 assists and 6 rebounds, and Thomas Koenis added a double-double of 14 pts. and 11 rebounds. Surging PG Dimeo v.d. Horst led Amsterdam with 20 pts., including 8 of 8 from the free throw line, and Mohammed Kherazzi added 16 pts. The win improves WCAA Giants'record to 2-5 while ABC Amsterdam falls to 3-4.

Martin Methodist RedHawks Tabbed Fifth in Conference Preseason Poll - by Stephan Ditgens
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (10/25) -- The TranSouth Athletic Conference men's basketball coaches have tipped Union University as the preseason favorite for the upcoming 2010-2011 men's basketball season, as MMC earned a fifth-spot ranking.

The Bulldogs received ten more points than second place Freed-Hardeman University. Trevecca Nazarene is picked third, while Cumberland University and Martin Methodist round out the top five. Mid-Continent, Lyon College, Bethel University, and Blue Mountain round out the rest of the teams in the poll.

After an 18-13, 6-10 (TSAC) season in 2009-10, MMC mens basketball Head Coach Andy Sharpe has his eyes set on improvement in 2010-11 with a plethora of new additions for the RedHawks.

Sharpe has added new leadership with the hiring of assistant coach David Anderson, while bringing in eight new faces to his players. Seniors Tripp Howell (Dalton, Ga.) and Chris Goodwin (Hendersonville, Tenn.) highlight the four returners, while Nello Giordano (Junior/Brisbane, Australia) and Tanner Andrews (Sophomore/Collinwood, Tenn.) also rejoin the RedHawks on the hardwood this season. Goodwin, a 45 percent three-point shooter averaged 14.2 points per contest, while Howell averaged 13.8 minutes of playing time in 2009-10.

Newcomers include five junior college transfers, while two freshmen guards Kyle Howe-Tipene and Brandon Hunter will look to fight for playing time. Division I transfer Chris Leggitt (Senior/Meridian, Miss.) joins MMC from Troy University, looking to make immediate impact for his final season as a 6-7 forward.

The RedHawks begin their 2010-11 campaign at Atlanta Christian on October 25th before competing in the Emmanuel College Classic and Brewton Parker Classic in late October. MMC will then open at home on November 9th, hosting Auburn-Montgomery.



Thursday: Magic and Suns celebrate - by Eurobasket News
0rlando M. - Washington W. 112-83
Dwight Howard (6'10''-C/F-85) had 23 points and 10 rebounds to lift the Magic to an easy 112-83 victory over the Washington Wizards in the debut of No. 1 pick John Wall on Thursday night, giving the NBA's newest arena a grand opening and setting the stage for a sizzling Sunshine State series showdown. Vince Carter (6'5''-G-77, college: N.Carolina) had 18 points and Jameer Nelson (6'0''-G-82, college: St.Joseph's) scored 16 to help the Magic cruise to another blowout victory after a perfect preseason. And it didn't seem to matter what the league's most-anticipated rookie did. Wall had 14 points and nine assists - much of it in cleanup duty - on 6 for 19 shooting in his first meaningful professional game. He showed flashes of stardom but became just another spectator on an emotional night in 0rlando. *Courtesy of

Utah Jazz - Phoenix Suns 94-110
Hakim Warrick (6'9''-F-82, college: Syracuse) and Steve Nash (6'3''-G-74, college: Santa Clara) scored 18 points apiece to help the Phoenix Suns beat the Utah Jazz 110-94 on Thursday night. The Suns (1-1) led by as many as 18 points against a Jazz team that played with more intensity than during their 22-point season-opening loss at Denver on Wednesday. But in the end the Jazz still had trouble finding the basket. The Jazz shot just 33.3 percent in the first quarter and 42.9 percent for the game. Utah was just 3-for-13 on 3-pointers while Phoenix made 10 from behind the arc. Al Jefferson (6'10''-F-85) scored 20 points to lead Utah (0-2). *Courtesy of

Grizzlies exercise options on 0.J. Mayo, Darrell Arthur and Hasheem Thabeet - by Eurobasket News
The Memphis Grizzlies exercised the fourth-year contract options on guard 0.J. Mayo (6'5''-G-87, college: USC) and forward Darrell Arthur (6'9''-F-88, college: Kansas) and the third-year option on center Hasheem Thabeet (7'3''-C-87, college: Connecticut), Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball 0perations Chris Wallace announced today. All three players are now guaranteed through the 2011-12 season.

Mayo, the third overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, holds career averages of 17.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 38.0 minutes in 165 games (all starts). The 6-4, 210-pound guard posted 17.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 37.9 minutes last season, and was the only Grizzlies player to start and play in every game. The 22-year-old, who has yet to miss a game in his NBA career, entered the 2010-11 season with more minutes logged (6,234) than any other NBA player in the last two seasons aside from Philadelphias Andre Iguodala.

Arthur, who missed most of his sophomore season due to right pectoralis surgery, bounced back this preseason to average 11.1 points (4th on the team) and 6.3 rebounds (2nd) in 24.9 minutes in eight games. The 6-9, 235-pound forward, who stepped into the starting lineup last night and scored a career-high 19 points in the Grizzlies regular season opener vs. Atlanta, has posted 5.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 17.9 minutes in 109 games (66 starts) with the Grizzlies, who acquired his draft rights (27th overall) during the 2008 NBA Draft. A key member of the 2008 NCAA Champion Kansas Jayhawks, the 22-year-old recorded 4.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14.3 minutes in 32 games last season.

Thabeet, the second overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, ranked second among rookies in blocks (1.31) while averaging 3.1 points and 3.6 rebounds in 13.0 minutes in 68 games (13 starts) last season. The 7-3, 267-pound center led all NBA players (min. 60 games) in blocks per 48 minutes (4.84). The 23-year-old, who was named the 2009 Co-Big East Player of the Year (along with current San Antonio Spurs forward DeJuan Blair) in his third and final season at Connecticut, is the first Tanzanian-born player to play in the NBA.

The Grizzlies (0-1) will look to bounce back from last nights opening night defeat, as they travel to Dallas to play the Mavericks at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow night at the American Airlines Center. The game will be televised locally on SportSouth HD.

Matt Bonner to miss 10-14 days - by Eurobasket News
It appears the ankle sprain that Spurs forward/center Matt Bonner (6'9''-F-80, college: Florida) suffered in last night's win at Indiana will keep him out about two week, according to MRI results.

Spurs forward/center Matt Bonner underwent an MRI earlier today after injuring his right ankle in last nights game vs. Indiana. The MRI confirmed Bonner suffered Grade 2 right ankle sprain. He is expected to be out of action for 10-14 days.

This leaves the Spurs pretty thin in the paint. Antonio McDyess will likely play extended minutes and it appears Tiago Splitter will be coming back right when the Spurs need him most. He's expected back on Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Friday's games (12) review - by Eurobasket News
Golde State W. - LA Clippers 109-91
Monta Ellis (6'4''-G-85) had double-double of 15 points and 11 assists, Dorell Wright (6'8''-G/F-85) drained 24 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Clippers 109-91 on Friday night. Stephen Curry (6'3''-G-88, college: Davidson) added 16 points before re-injuring his right ankle in the third quarter. In the loosing sdquad, Eric Gordon (6'4''-G-88, college: Indiana) delivered 19 points. Their second scorer was Baron Davis with 16 pts and he also dished out 8 assists beside that. Blake Griffin stopped to 14 pts and 10 rebs.

Phoenix Suns - LA Lakers 106-114
Lamar Odom (6'10''-F-79, college: Rhode Island) had 18 points and 17 rebounds and the Los Angeles Lakers beat Phoenix 114-106 on Friday night in the Suns' home opener and a rematch of last season's Western Conference finalists. Kobe Bryant (6'6''-G-78) scored 25 points and Pau Gasol (7'0''-F/C-80) had 21 in the Lakers' eighth victory over Phoenix in their last 10 meetings. The Lakers' Phil Jackson earned his 1,100th career coaching victory. No one has reached that mark quicker than Jackson, who did it in 1,560 games, with some help from Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal and Bryant, among others. Grant Hill (6'8''-F-72, college: Duke) scored 21 points, Robin Lopez had 18 points and 14 rebounds and Jason Richardson added 17 points for the Suns, playing on consecutive nights after beating the Jazz in Utah on Thursday. Goran Dragic added 15 for Phoenix. Ron Artest scored 14 points for the Lakers, while Derek Fisher and Matt Barnes added 11 apiece. *Courtesy of

Detroit P. - Oklah.City T. 104-105
The Oklahoma City Thunder showed Friday night they have other options when Kevin Durant (6'9''-G/F-88, college: Texas) is covered during a tight game. Jeff Green (6'9''-F-86, college: Georgetown) made a layup with 2.5 seconds left, lifting Oklahoma City to a 105-104 win over the Detroit Pistons. Durant came up with 30 points and 8 assists in victory. Ben Gordon (6'2''-G-83, college: Connecticut) had 32 points in defeat.

Miami Heat - Orlando M. 96-70
Dwyane Wade (6'4''-G-82, college: Marquette) scored 26 points in Miami's home opener, LeBron James (6'8''-F-84) had 15 points and seven assists and the Heat scored the first 14 points of the second half to turn a close game into a surprisingly one-sided 96-70 victory over the Magic. Dwight Howard (6'10''-C/F-85) had 19 points and 7 rebounds for his team.

Minnesota T. - Milwaukee B. 96-85
Michael Beasley (6'9''-F-89, college: Kansas St.) had 21 points and 10 rebounds and the Timberwolves outrebounded Milwaukee 62-39 in a 96-85 victory on Friday night. Kevin Love (6'10''-C-88, college: UCLA) added 17 points and 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves (1-1), who certainly needed a win with a daunting road trip to Memphis, Miami and Orlando on the horizon. Corey Maggette (6'6''-G-79, college: Duke) scored 23 points for the Bucks, who shot just 36 percent, including 3 for 20 from 3-point range. *Courtesy of

Boston C. - New York K. 105-101
Rajon Rondo (6'1''-G-86, college: Kentucky) had a triple-double with a career-high 24 assists on Friday night to lead Boston to a 105-101 victory over the New York Knicks. It was second-most in franchise history and the most since Bob Cousy had 28 in 1959. Paul Pierce (6'7''-F-77, college: Kansas) (14 rebs) and Kevin garnett (10 rebs) scored 25 and 24 points respectively. In defeat, Amare Stoudemire (6'10''-F-82, agency: Rogue Sports) had 27 points and 8 boards.

N.Orleans H. - Denver N. 101-95
Chris Paul (6'0''-G-85, college: Wake Forest) scored 10 of his 18 points inside the final nine minutes and assisted on three key baskets during a decisive 13-2 run that sent the Hornets to a 101-95 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Friday night. David West (6'8''-F-80, college: Xavier) scored 17 points and Emeka Okafor, who did not attempt a shot in the Hornets' opener on Wednesday, added 13 points in the club's second game. Carmelo Anthony (6'8''-F-84, college: Syracuse) had 24 points and 10 rebounds for Denver, which led 79-74 early in the fourth quarter before Williams called timeout and put Paul back on the floor. *Courtesy of

Charlotte B. - Indiana P. 101-104
Back in North Carolina and on the floor again after a long, frustrating layoff, Tyler Hansbrough performed as if he was back in college. His clutch play helped spoil the home opener for another ex-North Carolina star, Michael Jordan. Hansbrough's impressive performance, combined with Danny Granger (6'8''-F-83, agency: Priority Sports, college: N.Mexico) 's 33 points, led the Indiana Pacers to a 104-101 comeback victory over Charlotte on Friday night that dropped the Jordan-owned Bobcats to an 0-2 start. Gerald Wallace (6'7''-F-82, college: Alabama) led Charlotte with 29 points, but was unhappy with his six missed free throws, including one with 1:22 left that would have tied it. *Courtesy of

New Jersey N. - Sacramento K. 106-100
The New Jersey Nets have started the season on another streak - a winning streak. After opening last season with an NBA-record 18 straight losses, the revamped Nets are going in a different direction under new owner Mikhail Prokhorov and new coach Avery Johnson. Devin Harris (6'3''-G-83, college: Wisconsin) had 21 points and 10 assists and the Nets staged another late rally in a 106-100 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night. *Courtesy of

Philadelph.76 - Atlanta H. 101-104
For three quarters, the Hawks' loaded offense appeared ready to bust open the game. Instead, they needed Josh Smith to touch just enough of Andres Nocioni's last shot to hang on and beat the Philadelphia 76ers 104-101 Friday night. Alfred Horford (6'10''-F/C-86, college: Florida) had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Joe Johnson (6'8''-F-81, college: Arkansas) scored 22 points and Jamal Crawford finished with 19 for the Hawks. Nocioni, who scored 15 points, had his 27-footer partially blocked by Smith as time expired, allowing the Hawks to move to 2-0 after wasting nearly all of a 15-point lead. *Courtesy of

Toronto R. - Cleveland C. 101-81
With 10 seconds left in a blowout win over the Cavs, Marcus Banks sent up an alley-oop pass that Leandrinho Barbosa (6'3''-G-82) neatly laid in to give the Raptors a 101-81 win over the Cavaliers, who won their first game in the post-LeBron era two nights earlier. Andrea Bargnani (6'10''-F/C-85) scored 20 points for Toronto. Antawn Jamison (6'9''-F-76, college: N.Carolina) delivered 13 points in loss.

Dallas M. - Memphis G. 90-91
The Memphis Grizzlies finally earned an elusive win in Big D. Rudy Gay (6'9''-F/G-86, college: Connecticut) scored 21 points, O.J. Mayo (6'5''-G-87, college: USC) added 20, and each made a key defensive play in the final seconds to help the Grizzlies beat the Dallas Mavericks 91-90 on Friday night. The Grizzlies ended a nine-game road losing streak to the Mavericks, winning in Dallas for the first time since Nov. 26, 2005. Marc Gasol (7'0''-C-85, agency: Interperformances) added 10 points and 15 rebounds for Memphis, which split its first two games of the season. Dallas native Darrell Arthur contributed 14 points. *Courtesy of

King leads Breakers to Crown - by Mike Lacey
The Breakers Academy defeated Waitakere 72-58 in the final of the Supercity Competition at North Shore Events Centre on Friday. This was a fitting climax for captain Sam King (199-F-91), and fellow seniors Morgan Nathan, Inga Solofuti and Josh Bloxham who all graduated from the Academy following the game.
Both teams started the final hesitantly with the score in single digits through the first six minutes before Josh Bloxham nailed a couple of baseline jumpers to give the breakers a 19-14 quarter time lead. This advantage was quickly erased by Waitakere in the second period as Matt Aird poured in 13 points including three, three point shots and Houston ORiley demonstrated his ability to score in traffic. Brad Anderson kept the Breakers in touch with ten points in the quarter but Waitakere led 38-34 at half time.
Waitakere still led 46-45 mid way through the third quarter but thereafter their offence ground to a halt and the Breakers took control. Waitakere could not break down the 1-3-1 zone defence thrown at them by Academy coach Judd Flavell and scored just two more points in the period. Their cause was not helped when they picked up a coach technical foul, Bloxham slotted home the resulting free throws and the Breakers took a crucial 55-48 advantage into the final period.
Waitakeres shooting woes continued in the fourth period (4 from 27 from the field) as they could manage just 10 points in the period. The Breakers, led by Nick Burrows with an impressive 16 rebounds and Morgan Nathan 9 rebounds, were able to control their own boards and point guard Josh Bloxham controlled the tempo down the stretch to ease the Breakers to a hard fought 72-58 victory. Bloxham had a game high 21 points with Brad Anderson also in double figures with 17 points.
Final score;
Breakers Academy 72 (Josh Bloxham 21, Brad Anderson 17, Sam King (199-F-91) 8, Rueban Te Rangi 8)
Waitakere 58 (Matt Aird 18, Patrich Bolstad 14, Houston O'Riley 13)

The talented basketball player Oliver Tot has debuted in Extraliga - by Martin Bosko
Young basketball player Oliver Tot (198-G-94) made his debut in Slovakian top league with age of 15 years and 9 months, which is the youngest player ever to play in Slovakian top league. In his debut played 17 minutes and score 2 points like point guard. But after his couple games he shocked everybody scored 17 points against champion BK Pezinok, shooting 3/5 for 3 and 3/3 for 2 , 2/3 from free throws and added 2 assist. For sure Slovakian national team is looking forward to get another good player in the future.

Delic number one in Slovakia for round 10 - by Eurobasket News
Croatian power forward Nenad Delic (210-F/C-84) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for MBK Handlova, receiving a Player of the Week award for round 10.
The 26-year old player was the main contributor (34 points, seven rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Prievidza (#11, 1-8) 99-93. Despite this victory Handlova dropped to the 6th position in Slovakian Extraliga. Handlova is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 5-5 record. Delic turned to be Handlova's top player in his first season with the team. Nenad Delic has solid league stats. He is in league's top in points (8th best: 19.7ppg) and averages impressive 63.9% FGP.

The second best player in last round's games was 26-year old American Roy Booker (191-G/F-84) of BC Prievidza. Booker had a very good evening with 34 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Prievidza lost that game 93-99 to the higher-ranked Handlova (#6, 5-5). Prievidza are still at the very bottom. 8 lost games is too many comparing to just one victory Prievidza managed to get this year. Booker is a newcomer at Prievidza, but is already the team's top player. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 27.7ppg (#2). He also recorded 4.3 assists per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Ronald Moore (183-G-88) of BK SPU Nitra (#4). Moore scored 25 points and passed eight assists. He was a key player of Nitra, leading his team to a 93-84overtime win against #2 ranked Nova Ves in a game of the week. Nitra needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 5 victories and 4 lost games. Moore has a great season in Slovakia. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.9ppg (6th best) and assists with 7.6apg (best passer).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Pavel Bosak (192-G-82) of Nitra - 25 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists

Thanks to this victory Norrkoping moved-up to the 3rd position in the Swedish league. They are still close to the very top. Norrkoping would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 4-1 record. Gervin has many years of experience at Norrkoping, through which he has constantly improved. George Gervin averages just after three games 10.3ppg.

Second best performed player last round was Liam Rush (202-F/G-82) of Sundsvall Dragons. He is Irish-Australian swingman in his first season at Sundsvall. In the last game Rush recorded impressive double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as Sundsvall lost that game 81-101 to slightly higher-ranked Norrkoping (#3, 4-1). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Sundsvall still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 3-2 record is not bad at all. Rush is a newcomer at Sundsvall and quickly became the team's new leader. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.8ppg (#3). He also registered 8.2 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Drazen Klaric (205-F-80, agency: Court Side) of KFUM Jamtland Basket (#8). Klaric scored 25 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Klaric's great performance Jamtland lost 75-81 to slightly higher-ranked 08 (#7, 2-3). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Jamtland can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-4 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Klaric he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Klaric has individually a great season in Sweden. After only 5 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.8ppg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Johan Westerlund (191-G/F-84) of 08 - 24 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Michael Palm (208-C-79) of Boras - 21 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Johnell Smith (186-G-80) of Sodertalje - 20 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists

Derby face League and Cup double-header - by George Manousidis
Derby Trailblazers face a pair of games this weekend, as they take on London Capitals in EBL division one at Moorways at Saturday, before making the short trip up into north Derbyshire, to renew their rivalry with Sheffield Arrows in the third round of the EBL Mens National Cup.
The league match represents another chance for Derby to get their first victory in the competition this season, but it wont be an easy task. Their opponents, London Capitals, have spent the last couple of seasons in the fully professional environment of the BBL, but are now back in the second tier. They have however retained a number of players who represented them in the BBL and as such, Trailblazers Coach Jamie Maudsley is expecting another difficult encounter.
Theyve got guys on their team that were averaging 18 points and 11 rebounds a game in the BBL, so theyll be a tough match up for us. Theyre led by Ibrahim Gariba, who scored 33 points as they lost 85-80 at Leicester Warriors last weekend and they have another guy called Charlando Brown whos a big scorer. The pair of them combined for 58 points against Leicester, which is pretty impressive at this level.
I think theyre incredibly fortunate to have a player like Gariba in their team. Hes a exceptionally good player and hes probably one of the best in division one. We cant just focus on him though. We need to think about what we can do better as a team.
In an ideal world, wed be able to put Woody [Mark Woodhouse (205-F/C-82, college: N.Carolina A&T)] up against him, but I think hes still a good month to six weeks away from a return. Hes gradually doing more in training each week, but realistically I think even If hes back on court by Christmas, hell have done a great job to get himself back in shape so quickly after a serious operation, he said.
If that wasnt enough, the Trailblazers are also involved in National Cup action on Sunday. Their opponents will be familiar, as they played Sheffield Arrows five times in all competitions last season. The Arrows have subsequently been relegated to EBL division two and have moved their home games to Killamarsh Sports Centre in North Derbyshire. Like the Capitals, Coach Maudsley believes they will be tricky opponents:
Theyre a good side at home and even though theyve dropped down a division, they still have Sam Spare whos a big solid player and theyve added another couple of guys they didnt have last year.
Weve got to be on our game and weve got to keep trying to improve. I think we did that against Durham and well try and do that again in the two games this weekend, he said.
The league match against London Capitals takes place at Moorways on Saturday 30th October at 7:30pm, while the Cup match against Sheffield tips off at 3:30pm on Sunday 31st, at Killamarsh Sports Centre in North Derbyshire.

Euroleague Qualifying Round 1 best performance: Penelope Taylor - by Eurobasket News
Australian forward Penelope Taylor (185-F-81) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Fenerbahce Istanbul, receiving a Player of the Week award for round 1 (Qualifying Round).
The 29-year old player was the main contributor (27 points, seven rebounds and four assists) to her team's victory, helping them to beat Rivas Ecopolis (#11, 0-1) 91-82. Despite this victory Fenerbahce dropped to the 7th position in Euroleague 5B. But it's just the very beginning of the Qualifying Round and Fenerbahce won just one (their first) game. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Taylor had a remarkable 70.0% from 2-point range. She turned to be Fenerbahce's top player in her first season with the team. Penelope Taylor has solid league stats. She is in league's top in points (2nd best: 27.0ppg) and averages impressive 4.0spg,70.0% FGP and 80.0% from behind 3-point line.

The second best player in last round's games was another Fenerbahce Istanbul's star - 30-year old Nevriye Yilmaz (195-C-80). Yilmaz had a very good evening with a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds. Of course Fenerbahce cruised to a 91-82 relatively comfortable win over Rivas Ecopolis (0-1). Her team has extremely good start of the Qualifying Round. They won their first game. However the Qualifying Round is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Yilmaz is one of the most experienced players at Fenerbahce and similarly like Penelope Taylor has a reputation of the team's most reliable player. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 26.0ppg (#4). She also registered 10.0 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was guard Ausra Bimbaite (179-G-82) of VICI Aistes Kaunas (#15). Bimbaite scored 26 points and grabbed seven rebounds. She was a key player of VICI Kaunas, leading her team to a 81-79 win against Spartak V MR (#16, 0-1). VICI Kaunas has a very good start of the Qualifying Round. But there was just one game played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Bimbaite also has a very good start of the Qualifying Round with very strong stats. The season just started for Bimbaite as she played only first game. But it already looks like she can be team's leader.

Other top performing players last week:
4. DeWanna Bonner (193-G-87) of Rivas Ecopolis - 16 points and 12 rebounds
5. Zuzana Zirkova (175-F/G-80) of Dobri Anjeli - 29 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists

Latta's 24 points and 8 assists give her Player of the Week award - by Eurobasket News
26-year old guard Ivory Latta (168-G-84, agency: 540 Sports) put on an amazing game in the last round for Maccabi Ramat Hen and receives a Player of the Week award for round 2.
She had the game-high 24 points adding eight rebounds and eight assists for Ramat Hen in her team's victory, helping them to beat Elitzur Ramla (#6, 1-1) 72-65. Despite this victory Ramat Hen dropped to the 3rd position in Israeli D1. But it's just the very beginning of the season and Ramat Hen won both games without losing any. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Latta had a remarkable 60.0% from 2-point range. She turned to be Ramat Hen's top player in her first season with the team. University of North Carolina graduate has very impressive stats this year. Latta. Latta is in league's top in points (4th best: 20.0ppg) and averages solid 2.5spg and 55.6% from behind 3-point line.

Second best performed player last round was Jazmine Sepulveda (177-G-85, agency: Merit Sports) of Hapoel Tel-Aviv. She is American-Puerto Rican guard in her first season at Hapoel T-A. In the last game Sepulveda recorded impressive double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as Hapoel T-A lost that game 55-72 to H.R. Le-Zion (2-0). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Sepulveda is a newcomer at Hapoel T-A and quickly became the team's new leader.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Jillian Robbins (185-F-84, agency: LBM Management) of Elitzur Rishon Le-Zion (#8). Robbins scored 22 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Robbins' great performance Elitzur R.Le-Zion lost 57-73 to Elitzur Holon (#4, 1-1). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. Elitzur R.Le-Zion can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 2 games. Too bad for Robbins she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Robbins has individually a great season in Israel. After only 2 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.0ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 13.0rpg (3rd best).

Charlotte Amalie Lady Hawks season to start in Puerto Rico - by David Edole
Last season the Lady Hawks of Charlotte Amalie began their campaign in Miami, Florida. This season Head Coach Myron Corbett has secured a spot in the ninth annual Puerto Rican Hoops Championship that will be held in Guaynabo on December 20-23, 2010. This competition brings together top rated high school players (boys and girls) from around the Caribbean as well as North America. Approximately 44 high school teams will participate in this tournament. Players and coaches will have an opportunity to mix with each other and learn other cultures as well as be seen. Scouts from Puerto Rican universities and the NCAA will have the opportunity witness new talents and possibly invite them to be part of their institutions.
Mr. Rafael Chino Torres, I am writing to accept the invitation to play in your tournament, both the female and male teams will be coming
to Puerto Rico to participate. Thank you, I am looking forward to working with you, stated Corbett.
