Ariel Beit-Halamy resigns from Hasharon

Ariel Beit-HalamyAriel Beit-Halamy, the coach of Israeli team Bnei Hasharon (Winner League) has stepped away from his post today after a disappointing home loss to Hapoel Eilat on Sunday.

Bnei Hasharon hosted Hapoel Eilat on Sunday but was defeated heavily in a humiliating 57-92 loss. The loss stopped the hopes of a play-off place at the end of the Winner League regular season and leaves Bnei Hasharon 10th place in the standings with an 8-13 record.

It is thought that those around the team and the front office tried to get Ariel Beit-Halamy to change his mind, but it was later officially confirmed that the coach had indeed resigned. Bnei Hasharon will now head into Sunday’s clash with Euroleague and Israeli giant Maccabi Tel Aviv without a head coach and still without leading scorer Romel Beck (201 cm, UNLV’05). The American swingman is missing for up to four weeks with a broken hand.

Maccabi Rishon Assistant Matan Harush is the front runner to Take over Bnei Herzliya coaching position, while former Rishon coach Effi Birnbaum and previous Israel’s Senior Men’s National-Team Assistant Eric Alfasi are also in contention.
