Hapoel Jerusalem ensured that promising forward Rafi Menco will be one of the pillars of the club’s future by signing the player to a four-year contract extension on Monday. Menco (1.98 meters, 20 years old) appeared in 14 Eurocup games off the bench last season. He captained Israel to a seventh-place finish at this summer’s Under-20 European Championships with team highs of 14.4 points and 6 rebounds per game. Menco will play the 2014-15 campaign on loan at fellow Israeli club Gilboa Galil to acquire more playing time and experience before returning to Jerusalem next summer.
