   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 29

- Matt Haryasz

Stanford graduate and ex-Rockets signee Matt Haryasz moved from Belgium to Israel in the summer, but it didn't last long. After only 3 games with Bnei Hasharon, in which he totalled 17 points and 12 rebounds, Haryasz moved to Holland to play for Groningen. Playing in the slightly crap Dutch league (no offense) has done wonders for Haryasz's numbers; he's averaging 16.1 points and 8.5 rebounds in only 25 minutes per game on the season.

Holland borders both Belgium and Germany, and their basketball league shares the Belgian and German league trait for having far too many Americans in it. Haryasz is one of 7 on his team, and they also boast a Canadian called Steve Ross. It seems excessive.
