Israel Basketball Squad
Plays For Experience

sraeli basketball coach
Muli Katzorin is hoping
history repeats itself —
and so far, he's gotten half
his wish.
The first part came true a
little over a week ago when
Katzorin's Hapoel Hagalil
Elyon team got to take over,
for the second consecutive
year, a Yugoslavian team's
exhibition schedule against
some Ohio and Michigan col-
leges. The Yugoslays
cancelled when several of
their players were called up
to a national team.
Katzorin said those games
last year against Bowling
Green, Cleveland State and
Western Michigan helped

his team and he's hoping
lightning will strike twice.
"In my opinion, this is the
best thing that can happen
to us," the coach said about
playing against American
teams under American,
rather than international,
rule's. The more aggressive
style of play in the United
States didn't hurt, either, he
said.
"Last year, when we came
here, we were slow and not
doing well. But after the
(exhibition) games, we were
quite improved. It helped
us," he said. His squad has
consistently been among the
top four teams in Israel's 12-
team Division I.
Major American and
international rules differ-
ences, said Katzorin, a
former Maccabi Ramat Gan
player, are a 30-second,
rather than 45-second, shot
clock; no slam-dunks; and
the five-second time limit on
the point guard holding the
ball.
In the international game,
"the point guard brings the
ball up and holds it or
dribbles it until the rest of
the team gets into position,"
said coach Katzorin. "But
the five-second limit here

says you cannot hold the
ball, but must pass it off and
that is not our style. So we
have to set up faster than we
are used to."
Hapoel Hagalil Elyon lost
the first game of the current
trip to Bowling Green by 25
points. "For our first game,
we had just completed a 36-
hour trip here. We didn't
have our 'legs' yet," Kat-
zorin said.
The Israeli squad cut the
margin considerably in the
next three games, losing to
Cleveland State by five, to
Central Michigan by three
and to Ferris State by six.
The team played Eastern
Michigan on Tuesday night.
It is scheduled to play the
University of Detroit on
Nov. 24 and the University
of Michigan-Dearborn Nov.
26 before heading back to
Israel Nov. 27.
Katzorin said the team,
sponsored by Epilady, paid
for its own transportation to
the United States. Its meals
and lodging in the U.S. are
covered under the terms of
the Yugoslavian contract.
Hagalil Elyon plays its
home games in a 2,000-seat
arena at Kibbutz Kfar Blum
in the northern Golan. The
squad has four American
players — 6-foot-9 power
forward Terry Martin, 6-7
small forward Desi Bormore,
6-5 guard Brad Leaf and 6-8
center Elwayne Campbell,
whose younger brother
Eldon is in his second year
with the Los Angeles
Lakers.
Katzorin said his guards
are quite capable of hitting
three-point goals and that
his team is "very physical
under the basket."
The four Americans and
5-11 Israeli point guard Adi
Gordon are the regular
starters on the 11-man
squad, although Katzorin
indicated he would give his
less-experienced players
more playing time on the
U.S. tour.
Asked how things were go-
ing thus far, Katzorin said,
"Not bad." But he readily
admitted a victory in the
U.S. would help. El
