An Upset in Budapest
BY BEATRICE CAMP
An official photo of the 1996 U.S. women’s senior national team.
The Hungarian team, Ferencváros, managed a surprise upset against the vaunted 1996 U.S. women’s Olympic fsj basketball team in February 1999.
No one imagined—not the Hungarians, and certainly not the Americans—that a little-known Hungarian basketball team could beat the vaunted U.S. women’s squad that had swept the 1996 Olympics.
Embassy Budapest was excited to learn that we would host the U.S. Women’s Basketball 1996 Olympic gold medalists in February 1999 on their winter European tour. Fsj basketball U.S. team had compiled a 52-0 exhibition record during its pre-Olympic fsj basketball and then won all eight Olympic games to finish with a 60-0 record. More popular than any previous women’s basketball team, Team USA drew a record 202,556 fans during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
And now Olympic champions Lisa Leslie, Ruthie Bolton, Sheryl Swoopes, Teresa Edwards, Dawn Staley and Katrina McClain would play an exhibition match in Budapest against the local Ferencvárosi Torna Club team, with a pre-match friendship game between Parliament and the U.S. embassy. Sports diplomacy at its finest, we thought.
Basketball has a long and distinguished history in Hungary. Physical education teacher Géza Kuncze introduced basketball (korbball) in Hungary in 1912, after he first saw it in Germany. The game proved popular in schools, and Hungary’s national team frequently did well in European competitions.
More than eight decades later, Géza’s grandson, Deputy Prime Minister Gábor Kuncze, was the stimulus for the match between Hungarian parliamentarians and U.S. embassy staff that was to precede the top ticket.
The embassy hoopsters included Deputy Chief of Mission Tom Robertson, fsj basketball, Public Affairs Officer Bill Morgan, Consul General Teddy Taylor and Defense Attaché Jon Martinson. Team uniforms were procured at an Air Force base used by the Stabilization Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a NATO-led multinational peacekeeping force deployed after the Bosnian war.
Our public affairs section worked closely with U.S. team coach Nell Fortner and managers to support what we saw fsj basketball a terrific exchange program. Both teams hobnobbed at a fsj basketball hosted by the DCM the night before the game. The Hungarians were wonderful hosts in turn; on game day, they provided a fabulous feast of prime national delicacies, including goose liver pâté.
With most embassy staff eager to cheer for the U.S. from the stands, my husband and I were designated to sit in the official box, fsj basketball, presided over by Agriculture Minister József Torgyán. We did our best to cheer diplomatically.
Physical education teacher Géza Kuncze introduced basketball (korbball) in Hungary in 1912, after he first saw it in Germany.
During the pre-match, the embassy managed to hold off the parliamentarians, with considerable help from an Air Force master sergeant augmenting the contingent of diplomats.
The main bill did not go as well. Although we all considered Team USA invincible, the Hungarian club team, Ferencváros, managed the unthinkable, beating Lisa Leslie and her superstar squad, 73-70. A stunned Ferencváros manager admitted she expected to be trounced, saying she would have been proud to lose by only 20 to 30 points, much less actually come out the victor.
Equally stunned, several of us gathered to say goodbye to the players. Our two sons were among the embassy kids eagerly waiting with their programs for autographs. But Team USA swept out of the locker room headed for their bus, brushing aside the uncomprehending children. Parents were left to explain that, while it is important to always be gracious in defeat, even adults sometimes behave less than civilly. A teachable moment, perhaps.
Ferencváros was the only defeat on the U.S, fsj basketball. national team’s five-game winter tour against European professional teams in Slovakia, France and Hungary.
As we debated how this debacle could have happened, the coach blamed the heavy lunch lexi york racquetball team enjoyed from the Hungarian hosts earlier that day. “I’ll never allow them to eat liver pâté again,” she declared.

Men’s basketball league looks to extend its reach
Are you interested in playing basketball in town?
Well if your answer is even a maybe, then you’re encouraged to look into the FSJ Men’s Basketball League, a weekly meeting of likeminded guys who will give you a workout along with some exciting fsj basketball action with some of the best players this city has to offer.
“The league is currently looking for individuals interested in taking part in their upcoming fsj basketball league,” says league commissioner and referee Ben Rauscher. “We are looking to have four teams of eight, though we have allowed for pick up players in the past.”
An inexpensive registration will get you one game a week for eight weeks, jersey rental, full-time refs and scorekeepers—a pretty reasonable price point compared to other sports in the city.
“I’ve just about recouped my costs on the jerseys. We would use any surplus budget to purchase other league items, fsj basketball, like new basketballs and a sports-specific first aid kit,” Rauscher says.
The league is currently running a drop-in night on Wednesday evenings at North Peace Fsj basketball from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. That’ll set you back the cost of a large coffee, but Rauscher is hoping to get enough people interested to continue with league play.
And speaking from experience, it is a good time with many great players.
“The fall league ended with Team Black beating Team Blue in the finals, getting a little revenge for a hard loss to them in the spring league in (overtime),” Rauscher recalls, attributing the victory to the presence of all-star center Dan Penner, who previously played for Carleton university.
“He was absent from the spring final and they only lost by one point.”
There are many talented basketball players in the city, Rauscher continued, from Jon Zaleski, the center for Team Red, or Team White’ss forward Nick Donnelly. Alex Neily plays point guard for Team Black.
“It’s just hard to get people who are able to play consistently.” Explaining why he doesn’t run a longer season.
Rauscher would like to run a longer season, but acknowledged the difficulty in getting players to play consistently.
“Past league president Aaron Olsen and I discussed it and we decided that an eight week season would allow for more people to be able to play consistently,” he said.
Anyone interested in playing, is encouraged to get in contact with the league at email@example.com, or hummer golf cart rental miami drop-in and see how you stack up against Wednesday nights until the shooting at concord mills today starts.

Regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or physical ability, there’s no cost to try it, and it’s a great sport for inclusivity.
