Gilchrist to Rishon
Uri Savir ,09/29/2005
Maccabi Rishon completes its roster with the arrival of John Gilchrist from Maryland University.

John Gilchrist (21, 1.89 m) signed today with Maccabi Rishon, and he joins Ryan Sydney, Omer Sneed and Lee Matthews. Greg Harrington was cut after not impressing coach Goodes in his trial period.

Gilchrist left Maryland after only 3 years, and at 21 and 3 months of age, he's one of the youngest foreigners ever to land here. He was in tryouts with Cleveland this summer, and also nearly signed with Greek Kolosos.

The very physically strong point guard averaged 13.9 points, 5.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds last season. A year earlier, he led the "Terps" to the ACC title, while being chosen to the tournament MVP.
