An interview with California's Israeli Freshman Avigiel Cohen - Nov 15, 2010

The Israeli U18 national team star Avigiel Cohen (180-F-92) decided to leave Israel and play for The University of California, Berkeley.Netanel Dahan asked her some questions:

Q1:
Personally you had a great summer while you averaged 18 ppg (4th in the tournament),8.6 rpg,3.6 apg,and 3.4 spg (3rd in the tournament),in the European Championships U18 Division B,but as a team the Isareli youth national team in both women and men are still in the division B,do you think that the national teams are worth more than that?.

Cohen:
As a player that grew up with the national team (from 14 years old) I can tell that the emphasis in our programs is to develop players. Yes, its true that we want to be in Division A but at the same time the coaches always tells us that the present is not that important, whats important is that we will develop to be professional players.

Q2:
Although you bore in LA you grew up in Israel,and to leave a place that you grew up in it's always tough thing to do,especially to a young person,how was this change for you?.

Cohen:
When I first came to Berkeley, I saw how different the European culture and the American are. I feel that so far, I am dealing with this challenge and I actually surprised myself how quickly I adjusted to the system. The people here have been supportive and they help me with anything I need.

Q3:
What are the diffrence between the European training and the college training?.

Cohen:
I have never played or practice in a professional basketball team back in Israel, so I can only compare it to High school level of practice. There is nothing like that in Israel. I feel that everything here is so organized, everybody knows their job and the practice is more intense. every week you feel stronger.

Q4:
Do you think that your development in the college is better than in Israel?.

Cohen:
Yes. I feel that as a person as well, not only as a player. Being by myself so far from home, and competing in such a high level I believe that I made the right decision.

Q5:
Does playing for the national team made you a better player?

Cohen:
There are no words to describe how proud I feel every time I put the Israeli uniform on my body. This is who I am, I am Israeli, I play for my country and its an astonishing emotion. Being in the stats also mean to represent your country, therefore everywhere I go I say that Im from Israel. I also volunteer in the Jewish Community and a part of the Jewish organization on campus Hillel.

Q6:
Why did you chose to go and playing for the University of Berkely California?.

Cohen:
I always knew I wanted to go and play college basketball. When I spoke with my parents about it, they told me that before I choose a school I have to make sure the academics are also as good as the basketball. The University of California Berkeley is the perfect match for those two. And on top of that California is one of the best places to live in the world, I love it here!.

Q7:
Shay Doron and Omri Casspi managed to get drafted and play for the best leagues in the world (the NBA and the WNBA),do you think about the WNBA as an option?.

Cohen:
I think that my goal right now is to graduate and to get my degree. Basketball is not everything in life and I have to take care of my future. Thinking of the WNBA is too early.

Q8:
The Israeli seniors woemn national team has progressed 3 times in a row to the European championship,do you think we can finally win an international title in the near future?.

Cohen:
Yes. I believe that every year we get better and this is the time to pick the fruits. We have really good playes in our senior national team and I think we can do it.

Q9:
Where do you wants to see yourself 5 years from now?.

Cohen:
With a BA from The University of California, Berkeley. Healthy! so I can continue with basketball and with my family.

In the meanwhile California started the season very well and won all its 3 games.
