The organization that coordinates European basketball will not make an exception to its uniform policy for an Orthodox Jewish player on the Israeli national women's team. Naama Shafir, an Israeli point guard and a player on the University of Toledo's women's basketball team, normally wears a T-shirt under her jersey for modesty reasons.
