  follow us on Facebook Twitter

The Palestinian Super League started off a week ago with 12 teams taking part along with the 2 winners from last years 1st division: Orthodox Beit Jala and Rameen.
This years league has seen several players transfers and new youth faces which reflects well on Palestinian Basketball. Also an Arabic website has been launched that tracks the results, schedule, clubs, players, blog, .

Here are the first weeks results:

Ibdaa vs. Orthodox Beit Jala 79 57
The opening game was packed with fans for both clubs that took place in Catholic Action Bethlehem. Ibdaa has new players that added value to the team: Ahmad Qandeels mid shots, penetrations 7 assists and Ahmad Aqab fighting for rebounds, and the usual duo Yahya AlKhatib (190-G-77) leading the team with his penetrations & 3pointers with Iyad Abduallah under basket, along with the 3pointers of Abduallah Jaber and Husam Obeid. While Beit Jala took their time to get into the rhythm of the game also the chemistry was missing with the new added players from Terrasanta club and the new comer from the States. However, Charlie Kattan the eldest in the whole league had a different say with his 3pointers along with Kamal Mukarker.

De La Salle vs. Hiteen 72 59
A fast pace game, De La Salle with his fast guards and strong centers was able to control the whole game (20-14) (15-14) (19-16) 18-15 with all players playing. Saleem Sakakini & Mousa Bashir with his rebounds and under basket moves along with Fadi & Jihad Yaghmour, Tawfiq &Telly Rafidis penetrations and shots along with Sari Amer, Hazem Khattab and Ammar Nofal (190-F-84) s assists. While Hiteen depended on their usual star Shadi Takruri with his penetrations and shots along with Mohammed AlHilu and Saed Darwazeh under basket with the new youth in the team who still need game experience like Ahmad Yonis.

Orthodox Beit Sahour vs. Ahli 95 73
Orthodox Beit Sahour with his mix of past and youth team & the new addition of Osama Abu Jaber gave the team a boost, although Oday Hilal a main player got injured in the first quarter (get well soon) they were still able to beat Ahlis experience lead by the young Ibrahim Habash along with Marwan Kassis & Osamas penetrations and shots along with Rafat Bannoura under the basket. While Ahli depended on Raed Diyabs 3pointers and penetrations, along with Ihab Samara the scorer of the team and Rami Bakri.

Orthodox Bethlehem vs. Berzeit 72 68
A competative game, Orthodox Bethlehem missing two from his main players: Osama Abu Jaber who left to Orthodox Beit Sahour and Firas Freij due to an elbow injury from last season, lead by Hanna Sahwani and George Canawati, along with Fares Swaiti, Ibrahim Bandak and Awad Hreimi under basket.
While Birzeit are missing out on their 3 year coach, Mahmoud Assaf player coach led the team through the brothers Ahmad and Mustafa Yassir, who had great shots & 3pointers, joined by Fadi Awad an ex-birzeit player who played in the past years in Arena and ASU in Jordan and recently came back, definitely needs some time to get used to the team.

Orthodox Ramallah vs. Rameen 67 59
An average game, Orthodox Ramallah have their coach back Othman Budeiri who gets their skills & spirits up, joined by four new players: Adham Jamzawi and Ismael Hamad from Qalandia along with Jason & Shadi Zeitawi from the states, thus still need some time to get the chemistry amongst the team and fitness going. The team is lead by Ahmad Deeb along with Ammar Jalaytah, with Nadeem Abdel Muhasen under basket and Jason Zeitawi all over the court. While Rameen, the new comer to the superleague, was a bit shaky in the first half and got into the rhythm in the 2nd leading both quarters, led by Ameen Salman, Wasim Misk and Shadi Hamad.

Sarriyet Ramallah vs. Eibal 72 64
A close game, Sarriyet Ramallah coached by Kareem Shaheen (Ex- Eibal Coach) led by Ibrahim Habash with the youth team Tamer Habash, Daud Abu Qweider and two new additions to the team: AdbelSatar Abdullah and Watheq Dweikat. The team played good teamwork and with good defense on the key player of Eibal, however, in the 2nd half, Eibal played more defense that gave them an edge with fast breaks especially that there was no defense going back, leading the 2nd half, Basheer Abdel Azziz (player coach) led Eibal along with Hamzeh Abbas and Tareq Tamimi under basket.
