Halperin Joins the NT

Yotam Halperin, who signed in Olimpija Ljubljana last week, will replace Barak Peleg in the national team 12-man roster to Novisad.

Surprising change of plan in the national team, 3 days before Israel takes off to the additional qualifying tournament in Novisad: Yotam Halperin, the young talented playmaker, replaces Barak Peleg, who can't join the trip because of personal medical issues.

Halperin, who moved last week to Olimpija Ljubljana, starred this summer in the U-21 World Championships in Argentina, where he led the tournament in scoring and was elected to the 1st team.

Maccabi Tel Aviv's talent has already played with Israel in the European Championship in 2003 and also participated in the qualifiers last summer. He was preferred over Amit Ben-David and Avi Sukar.
