As a result of this conversation, Coach Eddie Krinsky of Westbury High School will be leaving this week to work all summer long with the above listed national teams. Krinsky, no longer a coach at Westbury High School since he is the student faculty advisor in the institution, keeps his finger in the basketbal pie in a variety of ways. Krinsky is an excellent teacher, and goes to Egypt with the highest recommenda- tions from our college and professional coaches. Incidentally. Krinsky is a graduate of Harvard University where he captained the baseball team and was a star on the basketball team. He is a classmate of Sen. Edward Kennedy (D. Mass.) and well remembers his days in Cambridge, Mass., with the volatile solon. As chairman of the U.S. Committee Sports for Israel Basketball Committee, I had the opportunity to observe Krinsky in operation during the Maccabiah Games in Israel in the summer of '77. The head coach was Dolph Schayes, former great ex-NYU, ex-Syracuse Nat's and a coach in the NBA with the Philadelphia Warriors. Krinsky served as co-coach and I can report, from personal observation, that he did an excellent job in scouting the Israeli National Team, in the preliminary games, which set 00-lf. up the final between U.S. and Israel. Personally, I felt that Israel was at least 20 points better than the U.S. team for the simple reason that it was loaded with former American college players who had migrated to the Holy Land. These players had been together for several months, whereas the American team was hastily pasted together after three sets of trials and went to Israel hoping to do its best. In the course of the basketball tournament, Krinsky remarked to me, "Haskell, we are going to beat the Israelis." I looked at him askance and said, "Eddie, you've lost your marbles.

I was sincere in this - declaration and was flabber- gasted to see what transpired in the final game when our team, led by the Black Jew, Willie Sims, now with Louisiana State University, won the game with some crucial foul shots in the last seconds. After it was all over, Eddie said to me, "I had these guys guarded so well that I knew what they ate for breakfast and dinner." I don't know what the dietary observation had to do with the ultimate win, but Krinsky showed me once and for all that he's an excellent coach and he will be a tremendous help to the Egyptian basketball program.
