Found a house in Holon? Sean Dawson finally looks like a complete player | Israel today


The Israeli's arrival as a champion was accompanied by many pessimistic assessments, but it seems that he took the king's road • The Purples are out of the crisis, but tomorrow they will play against Dijon in a game for the whole pot • Also: the success of Roy Huber in the Upper Galilee • Summary of the cycle in the Premier League

Those who were looking for the real version of Shawn Dawson got it in Hapoel Holon's victory over Hapoel Tel Aviv this week.

This was Dawson when he shows all the goodness in him, and in this version he could be the best Israeli in the league.

The problem of the Israeli forward is that he fails to bring this ability consistently, where the game for him to advance to the next level is stability.

In terms of the combination of talent and athletic ability, there is no Israeli player in the league like Dawson.

His season's game at Shlomo Group Hall, where he probably ended a long absorption process full of ups and downs that he had in Holon.

Pessimistic assessments accompanied his arrival to the team, when quite a few people wondered if, after the departure of Guy Panini and Rafi Manko, he was the right player.

Quite a few thought that the Purples were wrong and that he would have trouble fitting in.

It wasn't easy, there were crises along the way, but the system and the player himself made the necessary adjustments.

The key to his success is not to force himself on the game, to flow and enter it through the defense and not to lower his head when things don't go well or he is less significant in the attack, and the biggest motto is, as mentioned, stability.

Shawn Dawson won a championship (with Maccabi Rashel) at the age of 22 and later received a contract in Spain (Hovantod in Dalona).

The road to the top stopped with the serious injuries he suffered, and maybe now at the age of 29 he finally gets to be the complete player.

This season match

was much more than a prestigious victory and a match that improves positions in the table for Holon.

The Purples were at the beginning of the crisis, and they came out of it in one of the most difficult games - Hapoel Tel Aviv at Shlomo Group Hall.

Recently, Holon was eliminated from the cup and suffered 2 losses at the opening of the top 16 in the Champions Cup, one of them was to Hapoel Jerusalem.

In Holonia there was a fear that the game against the Reds would put them in a big crisis, but they stopped it in time.

Holon will play tomorrow against Dijon in France, in a match for its European season.

Another character test.

If you pass it too then she is back on the high road.

The best Israeli coordinator in the league

for the wonderful period of Hapoel Galil Alyion signed Roy Huber.

Barak Peleg's team, which in the last 9 games lost only once, is enjoying the blossoming of the coordinator whose beginning of the current season was difficult.

He had a bad start to the season, and then an injury came that sidelined him for several weeks.

His comeback against Nes Ziona was in a big game that gave Galil a victory.

Since then the group has flown under his leadership.

Huber is in the best shape of his career, in the six games since he returned to play he is averaging 15 points and 5 assists and almost three three-pointers per game, and was also named the league's Israeli player of the month for January.

Huber is no longer just a good league player, this ability makes him the best Israeli center in the league, which will probably give him great credit in the team's games in the upcoming window of games.
