Sport is Life.
The Rockingham Flames would like to welcome Josh Ritchart to the Men’s SBL program and wider Rockingham Community. Josh, a Californian native and UC Davis Graduate, who most recently played in Sweden, will bring elite scoring power to our young and exciting group. A 6’9’’ pure stretch 4, Josh will bring much needed size and poise on the offensive end. Head Coach Brad Samuelson is over the moon with the addition of Ritchart. “Josh is a high character, highly skilled and highly intelligent big man who possesses a great ability to stretch the floor at a high clip. For a young man, Josh has already been exposed to some great leagues around the world and we hope that he can bring his experiences to our club and provide some leadership for our younger players. We are tremendously excited about Josh joining our group and eagerly await his arrival.”
Without much fanfare, the Rizing Zephyr Fukuoka are in the midst of an impressive, yet steady climb up the Japan Pro Basketball ladder.
The Rizing are 24-4 entering this weekend All Stars Game in Kumamoto. They are tied with the Akita Northern Happinets for the best record in 2nd division .
Fukuoka is the top shooting Team in the B2 division , converting 46.2% of his shots and it is also No. 1 in Assists ( 21.4 per game )
Veteran forward Josh Peppers, who made his Rizing debut in 2007-2008 bj league season is the club's leading scorer ( 17ppg per game and 9th best scorer overall in the League). He is # 3 in the second division for steals (1.6 per game), second on the team in Rebounds ( 5.6 per game) and second in assists ( 3.9 per game )
The Yokohama B-Corsairs this week hired veteran bench boss Tom Wisman as an adviser.
The well-traveled Wisman guided the Tochigi Brex to a title in the B. League’s inaugural season last May. The team didn’t offer him a new contract, leaving the successful mentor of five national teams (Japan, England, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Qatar) and 23 league and cup championship looking for work.
The 68-year-old Wisman’s starts his new position as the B-Corsairs (4-13, worst record in the six-team Central Division) look to turn around their season. In his new job, Wisman will work with first-year coach Satoru Furuta, his staff and a roster that includes former NBA lottery pick Hasheem Thabeet.
Tyler Lamb announced that he had agreed to terms with Hong Kong Eastern Sports Club for another ABL Season. Last season Hong Kong's Eastern Long Lions crowned Asean Basketball Champions and Lamb had an impressive season with 18.8ppg, 5.4rpg, 3.4apg, 2.5 steals in 25 games.
Michael Parker has quietly compiled impressive numbers throughout his pro basketball career in Japan.
The veteran forward’s success speaks for itself. He won four scoring titles in the bj-league, including a league-record 27.3 points per game in the 2010-11 season, establishing himself as a prolific point producer in a bygone era. This included a 53-point game on Nov. 7, 2010, the now-defunct circuit’s record that was only surpassed by Le’Bryan Nash’s 54-point output in a February 2016 game.
Last weekend, Parker added to his growing legacy as one of the legends of the game here. He surpassed the 10,000-point milestone in regular-season games.
It’s a testament to his longevity, hard work and all-around talents.
Parker is like a motor on the court. He’s always moving, always contributing, always demonstrating that he’s a vital component for his team.
The Chiba Jets Funabashi star doesn’t need to proclaim his greatness or rattle off a list of accomplishments to prove that he deserves greater acclaim for his pro career. For Parker, there’s always another game to play, another win to chase after.
