The Last Thing A Burglar Wants To See

for the national team for two
years, turned 18 and went in-
to the Israeli army. The next
year he was back on the
volleyball team, which torued
the U.S., beginning in
January, 1987.
"I never thought about
leaving Israel even when we
toured," Scher said. "I never
thought about coming to -the

United States, or to UCLA, to
play volleyball."
However, after returning to
Israel, Scher said, "I found
myself in a position of wan-
ting to learn a high-level of
study. Since I was a good
volleyball player, I thought
it'd be best to use that to get
to the United States."
So, last may, Scher boarded
El Al, landing some 20 hours
later in Los Angeles. He was
greeted by some Israelis he'd
met during the tour and he
stayed with them. One of
Scher's friends, Ron Peleg,
contacted Wally Martin,
UCLA assistant volleyball
coach.
When Martin heard the
name "Oren Scher" and the
phrase, "He wants to go to
UCLA," his mouth dropped.
So did Scates'.
"When Wally told me Oren
wanted to come here, I was,
well, surprised. Happily sur-
prised," Scates said.
"I remembered him well.

He was, without a doubt,
Israel's best player," Scates
said. "He put a lot of balls
away. He impressed me a lot."
Scher's ascent to the varsi-
ty has impressed Scates even
more.
"I didn't think he'd be able
to do it. He was way down on
the depth chart. For him to
make the strides he did —
well, it shows a lot about him,
his character, his dedication.
Not many people could have
done it. I admire him for it."
Scher was not eligible for
scholarship money or much
financial aid, due to a delay
in accepting his high school
credits.
"They gave me $1,700 for
the year," Scher said. Tuition
is $2,150 per quarter for out-
of-staters, which Scher is
considered.
"I don't see how I'll be able
to do this next year," said
Scher, who is listed as a junior
because of his age. "I'm going
to have to get more money for
me to be back next year."
The addition of Scher has
transformed the Bruins into
national title contenders.
After claiming their 12th
NCAA national champion-
ship, the Bruins last season
finished 28-10. The 10 defeats
were the most a Scates team
has suffered in 26 years.
"Oren's the third guy from
another country that I've had
in my 27 years here," Scates
said. "The first guy, Rick
Amon, came from France in
1979 and we won the national
championship. Asbjorn
Volstad of Norway came here
(in 1984), and we won it.
Now Oren comes along.
Maybe it's an omen."
