| Al Sharjah wins Fattouhs signature- Aug.13, 2014 (by *AddMe)|
Al Sharjah club, former Arab Champions and one of the well known clubs in the middle east added another great piece to its coaching staff with the signing of assistant coach Jade Fattouh who will be working with team head coach Joseph Stiebing ( former Qatar National Team Head Coach, reached with the team Japan Basketball World Cup in 2006 for the first time in Qatar history).

Al Sharjah club, former Arab Champions and one of the well known clubs in the middle east added another great piece to its coaching staff with the signing of assistant coach Jade Fattouh who will be working with team head coach Joseph Stiebing ( former Qatar National Team Head Coach, reached with the team Japan Basketball World Cup in 2006 for the first time in Qatar history).
Fattouh had another successful season last year with Al Manama club after being crowned champion of the Bahraini league and following his young but rich of titles career so far at his previous club Al Riyadi Club in Lebanon in which he was part of the 2011 Asian Champions campaign as well as many local and international titles.
Not to forget his accomplishments with the youth teams and the players he contributed in getting to the next level from the Youth Academy of Lebanons number one club in the history of the game.
Coach Jade will have a tough challenge with his new team after they had a setback last season failing to reach UAEs top 4 a league that has attracted many of the top imports that ever played in the region such as Mario Kasun (213-C-80), Cheikh Samb, Nikoloz Tskitishvili, Vincent Jones and many others.
Clubs preparations already started last week which is earlier than ever, specially that the league wont be starting till November but according to Coach Jade, that provides the coaching staff enough time to evaluate what they have and implement their philosophy on the team and with the addition of the import ( name still undisclosed) team would still have enough time to reach the needed chemistry by the start of the season.

American Guard Alex Legion will join Sagesse Club to complete their American Duo alongside with Chris Daniels after both Dewarrick Spencer and Charles Thomas had to leave for family issues leaving the club with a shortened roster specially after the injury of National Team Shooting Guard Elie Rustom.
Legion might not play in game 3 of the final 8 against Tadamon Zouk scheduled for tomorrow after noon but in case needed he'll be ready as mentioned by the club.
The American guard averaged recently in Italy-Lega Due Silver 23.3 points per game in addition to 9.6 rebounds and 1 steal shooting 36.8% from 3 pts, 80% from the free throw line and 62.5% from 2pt FG.
Sagesse enter the game at home with high confidence after two convincing wins showing great offensive efficiency and a 42% percentage from the promise land in game 2.
A win would put the Green team in the final four before any other team awaiting game 3 from the series of Amchit and Homentmen that might come to an end on Sunday in case the home team ( Amchit) manages to win.
On the other side of the table regular season leaders Al Riyadi Club will use American Center Loren Woods again next to the league's top player this season Ismail Ahmad as their foreign duo in tomorrow's game against Champville at home in Manara.
Series is tied at 1 win for each team and fans will get another chance to watch the great matchup of Loren Woods and Vladan Vukosavljevi.
Winner of the series will face winner of the great duel of Moutahed and Byblos that is led currently by Byblos at 2-1.

Moutahed club got back on track in playoffs final 8 series against Byblos by winning a tough game 3 on the road 92-88 a game that had too many scenarios.
Shifting to a new duo of imports with Corey Williams and Flip Murray, Moutahed gave up their inside huge presence of all season when they waived Center Hassan Whiteside who according to inside sources gave the team no choice but to fire him after his unacceptable, unprofessional actions on the court lately that cost the team one loss after another.
The new american duo were to play on the same squad for the first time ever, the team struggled early in the game with a slow start having a new addition also of Guard Ghaleb Reda, changes that gave the upper hand to the home team early in the game by more than 8 points.
But the road team fought back starting the second quarter and gained an eleven point lead at the half 50-39 after a quarter that seemed to last forever with all the fouls on the scoreboard.
But as shown all season long, Byblos a team led by veteran international coach Nenad Vucinic would never give up that easy, they came back strong and attacked Moutahed and the game went on and on as tough as a battle of 4th and 5th place can be.
Moutahed fouled Byblos Center Mike Fraiser 11 times in the game, sending him to the line 16 times where he was able to knock down 11 shots while his american teammate Jasmon "JAY" Youngblood dropped 35 points on the night shooting 4/12 from the promise land and 9/11 from the charity stripe.
Murray led Moutahed with big shots hitting 4/7 3pts to complete his 27 points in addition to 3 steals while the leader of the team Corey Williams showed why his presence in the time cannot be matched by another player with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists and 2 steals with another boost of 19 points by Ghaleb Reda who carried the team in the last seconds with his free throws knocking down 6 of 8 to make sure the series go back to Tripoli for a game 4.
Byblos had only 9 assists on the night with 17 tunrovers which reflects a very bad offensive night as a team missing 9 free throws and shooting a poor 24% ( 8/34) from the 3pts line and 40% FG at home, while Moutahed recorded 13 assists and 13 turnovers missing 8 free throws and shooting 41% ( 7/17) from the 3 pts line and 57% FG.
Moutahed will host game 4 in Tripoli in what is another do or die scenario for the team.
