I haven't been following Maccabi T-A, of course, but it looks, from this story in the May 10 Jerusalem Post (https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Sports/BSL-Final-Four-up-for-grabs-556099) that Jeremy arrived at the end of April in a nick of time:


The BSL Final Four is just one month away, but the title race seems to only be getting vaguer by the day.


Each team will have three more regular season games to play after this weekend ahead of the start of the best-of-five quarterfinal playoffs.

The likes of Hapoel Gilboa/Galil, Hapoel Tel Aviv and Hapoel Eilat have also already proven this season that they can beat any team on their day, making the race to qualify for the Final Four, not to mention win the season-ending tournament, tighter than ever.

Maccabi Tel Aviv hasn’t even reached the BSL final in the past three years, and despite an encouraging start to the season, has completely capitulated since losing to Holon in the cup final almost three months ago.

The yellow-and-blue has won just six of its past 20 games overall competitions, including six losses of its last 10 BSL contests. Croatian coach Neven Spahija has been lucky not to lose his job and he completely lost his cool following Monday’s 74-69 setback in Eilat.

Maccabi slipped away with a tight win over Ironi Nes Ziona with 98-95.

Jeremy Pargo worked his wonders in the final period, adding 20 out of his 26 points in the final stretch of the game. Pargo executed the visitors with 4/6 from the three-point line and added up to 30 points of index rating, the highest of any other player in the game.

Not sure what's happening in Israel, but the season may be over due to a player's strike and management failing to reach a settlement.

(1/2) Dear Fans,
We have received the announcement made by the league administration with great sorrow, according to the announcement: “Under these current circumstances, the situation does not allow the league to continue” >>

And then this, from the Jerusalem Post (https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Sports/Strike-plays-games-with-Israeli-hoops-558112):

Strike plays games with Israeli hoops
The last time the Israeli players called a strike was five years ago.

After five days in which the Basketball Super League bosses and the Israeli players’ union traded threats and following the postponement of Monday’s BSL action due to the strike called by the players, the sides met once more on Tuesday evening in the office of the Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev.

The minister believed she would be able to get the parties to agree to a compromise that will at least allow the 2017/18 season to end as scheduled.

The Israeli league and the players association reached some sort of agreement that will permit the remainder of the season to be played out, per Eurohoops.net. (https://www.eurohoops.net/en/others/683174/the-israeli-league-is-back-in-action/) Maccabi T-A's next game is scheduled for 5/27/18 at 11:45 AM.

Norris Cole scored a game-high 24 points and dished out five assists, as Maccabi Tel Aviv beat Ironi Nes Ziona 96 – 74 in Game 4 of the Israeli Winner League quarterfinals to win the series 3-1.

Maccabi advanced to the Final Four where they will face archrival Hapoel Tel Aviv.

Apart from Cole, Jeremy Pargo had a stunning playmaking night with a career-high 15 assists (for two turnovers) to go along his eight points and five rebounds. Jake Cohen added 18 points.

ZN thanks for keeping us up-to-date on all our former Zags!

Question: I noticed on two occasions that JP made a pass to a teammate and that teammate was fouled during the act of shooting. If that teammate makes both FT's does that mean JP gets an assist as well?

The Sports Rabbi, (http://sportsrabbi.com/maccabi-tel-aviv-wins-the-israel-basketball-winner-league-title/) with a postmortem of the game, including some nice props for Jeremy:

3) But what was the biggest factor that gave Maccabi an advantage over the other teams? It was two things each starting with the letter P, practice and Pargo, “I spoke about the importance of practice all season and because of the rule of having two Israeli players on the court at all time which is not played in Europe. Since we finished the Euroleague, we started to breathe and started to practice the strike helped us as we practiced and didn’t stop. I think that was also an important part. Playing every three days with a different roster made it very difficult. I really don’t understand how to work under the condition but we found a way. The addition of Jeremy Pargo was so important for us.”

Jeremy Pargo remains a “Yellow”.

By Eurohoops team/ info@eurohoops.net

Maccabi Tel Aviv extended the contract of American guard Jeremy Pargo, the club announced Wednesday (11/7). The player will thus embark on his third season with the Israeli team, after his stints in 2010-2011, 2014-2015 and 2018.

Pargo, 32, returned to Maccabi on April and was instrumental in helping the club win the Israeli Winner League title by averaging 12.5 points, 8 assists, and 2.8 rebounds during 29.7 minutes per game in the playoffs. It was Pargo’s second title with Maccabi, following the 2011 championship.

Throughout his career, Pargo has also played for CSKA Moscow, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Cleveland Cavaliers plus multiple teams in China. Next season he will return to EuroLeague where he last played in 2015.
