Skin-toned sleeves allow Shafir to play for Israel

Israeli hoopster Naama Shafir competed in the European women's championship wearing skin-toned elastic sleeves. The compromise between the Israeli national team and FIBA Europe, the Munich-based organization that governs basketball in Europe, came after FIBA refused to allow Shafir to play in the EuroBasket tournament with a T-shirt under her jersey, for reasons of modesty, since FIBA regulations state that all players must wear the same uniform.
