Brad
Greenberg
The upcoming Maccabiah Games, also referred to as the "Jewish Olympics", are held every four years in Israel attracting the elite Jewish athletes from around the world. The 19th Maccabiah will be held July 2013.

New York Knicks star forward Amar'e Stoudamire will make a guest appearance, his second in Israel, after confirming his participation as the Assistant Coach for Canada's Men's Team.

Former NCAA Coach and current ESPN Analyst Seth Greenberg was assigned the Head Coaching position for the USA Open Men's Team, however, due to personal reasons, Greenberg stepped down as coach while older brother Brad Greenberg, a former General Manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, whose enjoying an outstanding coaching season leading Maccabi Haifa to Israel's No. 2 seed, elected to lead the Americans.

In Israel, Greenberg has exceeded all expectations and recently led Haifa to the state-cup finals, in addition to being selected to co-coach Team Foreigners in the Israeli All-Star Game. Greenberg will be associated by Ross Condon, Director of Operations at Pennsylvania State University. Condon previously served as an assistant coach at Boston University, and partnered with Greenberg at Radford University between the 2007-2009 seasons.

As for Greenberg's red-white-and-blue roster, although it isn't 100% confirmed, Eurobasket gives you the 12 draftees, likely to rep Team USA.

Zack Rosen, Point Guard (6'0, 24): In his debut season overseas, the former Penn star playmaker registers 6.3 points on 40% shooting from beyond the arc, 90% free throws, and 2 assists per game for Hapoel Holon of Israel's top division. Rosen is also a member of Team USA's 2009 Maccabiah gold medal squad.

Stu Douglass, Shooting Guard (6'3, 22): Douglass is a lights-out shooter for the Americans, stroking his way to a noteworthy rookie season in Spain's highly regarded second division for Planasa Navarra, netting 9.6 points on 43% 3-ball shooting, and over 90% from the charity stripe. He also records 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per.

Douglass played college ball at the University of Michigan where he served as co-captain during his Junior and Senior seasons, setting the record for most games played by any Michigan baller making 136 consecutive appearances. Last summer, Douglass was high on Greenberg, Haifa's recruiting radar as the team is likely to make a repeated run for the guard this offseason.

Mitchell Kates, Point Guard (6'2, 24): A Computer Science and Engineering Senior at MIT, Kates also played Varsity for school's NCAA Division III crew.

Kates currently hold MIT's All-Time records in assists and steals, and has been recognized for his stellar play on ESPN, Slam Magazine, Sports Illustrated, The Boston Globe and The New York Times. Last year, Kates played in and started all 31 games as a Junior, tailing 14.2 points, 5.4 assists and 2.3 steals per game. He returns to Israel after winning the 2005 Maccabiah with USA's U-16.

Evan Conti, Second Guard (6'3, 20): Conti is a high-energy Freshman guard for the Quinnipiac Bobcats. The Holy Cross High alumnus averaged nearly 18 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists per game as a senior, earning the Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) First Team recognition. Conti was selected to New York City's Second Team by the New York Post and New York Daily News.

He registers 8.5 points, 4.4 boards and 2.3 dimes for the Bobcats this season. In 2009, Conti competed in and was named Most Valuable Player of the Maccabiah in Israel for the U-18 age group. His tournament-high came against the hosts where Conti dropped a game-high 36 points, 27 of them by half-time.

Bryan Cohen, Second Guard (6'4, 23): A former four-year starting guard at Bucknell University, Cohen earned Second Team All-Patriot League honors as a Senior, appearing in 33 games, posting averages of 6.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.4 dimes per.

Cohen, a three-time Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year, became the only player in history to win the same major award three times. Furthermore, Cohen broke Bucknell's record with 130 career games played, and hasn't missed a match throughout his four collegiate seasons, toping retired Bucknell, European legend in point guard J.R. Holden.

Cohen played for Team USA in the 2009 Maccabiah Games in Israel under head coach Bruce Pearl, scoring in double figures in four-of-six games, helping to lead the U.S. to a gold medal. Cohen currently plays for Maccabi Haifa under coach Greenberg, averaging 0.8 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.3 assist per.

Danny Rubin, Second Guard (6'5, 21): Rubin is a Junior guard at Boston College. As a Sophomore, Rubin played in 19 games, averaging 1.9 points per in the ACC contests. In his first six games in Boston's maroon-and-gold, Rubin netted eight points on 16-for-32 shooting from the floor.

Alex Rosenberg, Forward (6'7, 21): Rosenberg is a hard-working sophomore forward at Columbia University, who resumes Maccabiah actions for a second time. His father, Marc, a two-time Maccabiah participant, played college hoops at Northeastern and Western New England College.

As a freshman, Rosenberg Jr. grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds in a win vs. Holy Cross. His best collegiate showing this season came in Colombia's blowout victory over Villanova, scoring a career-best 21 points, knocking down an impressive 11-14 free throws.

The New Jersey-born, averages 9.5 points, 4.3 boards and 2 dimes over 28 games, and is also childhood friend and four-year AAU pupil of Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Point Guard Kyrie Irving.

Ben Carter, Power Forward (6'8, 18): Born in Tel Aviv to an American ball player and Israeli mother, Carter, a rare Israeli native on USA's lineup, plays power forward at Oregon University. Carter moved to Las Vegas at six-months-old, where he has successfully flourished his game.

Carter is a talented and smart offensive player, aggressive dunker and a polished finisher around the rim, who prefers facing up from midrange. He can step out to hit the three, although he is yet to attempt a 3-pointer for the Ducks. Carter's vertical leap isn't crazy, yet his timing and anticipation produce a respectable shot blocker.

Will Tashman, Forward (6'8, 21): Tashman recently completed a standout Senior year at MIT, leading the team both in scoring and rebounding with a respected double-double of 16.3 points and 10.8 boards nightly.

The California native received First Team All-District player honors, and is the third player in program history to be selected to the prestigious NABC All-Region squad.

Tashman became the first MIT player to reach a career milestone of 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds, finishing among the Top-10 all-time at MIT in points (1,414), rebounds (1,023), field goal percentage (.541), free throw percentage (.740), assists (270) and blocks (82).

Isaac Rosefelt, a 27-year-old, 6-foot-8, six-year pro with experience from Portugal, Spain, France, and multiple seasons in Israel, currently with Bnei Herzliya, announced being unavailable this summer, despite Coach Greenberg expressing great desire to have the veteran big man on board.

Rosefelt will be replaced by Tim Carter, a 6-foot-8 Freshman forward at Western Wyoming Community College, and the brother of Ben Carter. Tim Started in 26-of-28 games for Western Wyoming this season, averaging 5 points and 3.7 boards in 16 minutes of action.

Eitan Chemerinski, Power Forward (6'8, unknown): Chemerinski emerged as one of the Ivy League's top offensive players down low, shooting 63 percent from the floor, ranking 2nd all-time in Cornell history. The Maryland native force completed his Senior season averaging 6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1 steals per contest, and has been eyed my multiple top division Israeli organizations.

Chemerinski posted double-digits in a series of games against Binghamton, Buffalo, Boston University and Delaware, registering 12.8 points, netting a noteworthy 22-of-29 from the floor.

Ex-Cornell center Jeff Foote, who underwent a brief stint with Israeli power Maccabi Tel Aviv, and now plays in Lithuania described the 218-pounder as an athletic big with good leaping ability, a nose for rebounding and a quick first step off the dribble. Foote also noted that his former teammate is an efficient shot blocker.

Jake Cohen, Power Forward/Center (6'10, 22): Davidson graduate Jake Cohen has been targeted by nearly every pro-team in Israel, including Maccabi Tel Aviv. Cohen is rumored to be playing at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, which is mobbed by Israeli agents.

At 6-foot-10, Cohen, the most exciting name on Team USA's roster, hasnt fully committed to join the tour and is expected to draw NBA interest this summer, particularly from the Charlotte Bobcats. Davidson College is located in Davidson, N.C., 19 miles north of Charlotte, allowing Bobcats officials to get a close-up look at Cohen these past couple of years.

Cohen, 22, was the two-time Southern Conference Player of the Year both his Junior and Senior seasons.

The Pennsylvania native joined Davidson in the 200910 season and quickly enrolled in the team's starting lineup. Averaging 13.3 points per game, Cohen become the first freshman to lead Davidson in scoring since the Golden State Warriors shooter Stephen Curry. Cohen upped his stats every season, concluding with 15 points, 5.2 boards and 1.5 assists over 35 showings for the Wildcats.

In his first taste of European hoops, Cohen represented Israel in the 2010 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship Division B in Austria, where he demolished opponents, finishing first in the competition in scoring (20), free throw percentage (87%), and drawn fouls (6.4), to which he added eight rebounds per game in 30 minutes of action.
