Tausha Mills, or "Baby Shaq" if you will, the 2nd overall pick in the 2000 WNBA Draft, will be Haifa Motzkin's 2nd foreigner this season. Motzkin's roster is now complete, 10 days before the season gets underway.

With a little over a week left before the start of the season, Hafia Motzkin completed its roster. The Israeli basketball union postponed the start of the men's league to November since it has been tough for teams in the north to prepare, even the women's Division II teams up north had their first game postponed, but Hapoel Haifa Motzkin will tip off the season on the 16th after completing the roster in the last minute.

Tausha Mills (30, 6'3), was the 2nd overall pick in the 2000 WNBA Draft (after Ann Wauters) by the Washington Mystics. Mills graduated from Alabama in 1998, she averaged 12.3 points and 7 rebounds per game as a senior and made the All-SEC 2nd team. She played two years at Alabama after transferring from junior college. She played 3 seasons for the Mystics, and one season for San Antonio. In 94 career games, Mills averaged 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game.

In Europe, Mills played in Turkey during the 04/05 season for Erdemir, and averaged 16.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. She tore her ACL during the season and returned to the state for surgery and rehab. Before that she played a season in Italy, and averaged 17 points and 13 rebounds per game. A year before that she played in France. Last year Mills didn't play in Europe.

Mills joins Angelina Williams, Ivelina Vrancheva, Shiri Pora, Chen Shtain, Lidija Becanovic, Lena Mustafina, Shira Haelyon, Mor Phillip and Yarden Katz at Motzkin.
