Perkins continues to shine in Israel (Basketball)

After dropping the first game of its Israeli League semifinal series, perennial power Maccabi Tel Aviv needed a spark against upset-minded Bnei Hasharon.

Enter Doron Perkins.

The 6-foot-2 Anchorage guard swooped in like Superman to save the season.

Perkins, of Bartlett High fame, enjoyed another big game last night in Game 3 with a 21-point, 6-rebound, 6-assist effort that was Rondo-esque.

The 104-82 runaway road win gave Maccabi a 2-1 edge in the best-of-5 series.

The Israeli juggernaut is shooting for its 49th league championship. What better than a player from the 49th state to lead the way?
