Tal Brody taught more than 100 children some cool new tricks when he stopped by Deerfield's Berto Center for a basketball clinic earlier this month. Former NBA state Kenny Battle was also there.
The Jewish National Fund hosted a basketball clinic with former University of Illinois and Israel basketball legend Tal Brody on Feb. 7 at the Berto Center in Deerfield. More than 100 children and parents braved the heavy snow and ice to come learn basketball moves from Brody and 1989 University of Illinois All American and former NBA star Kenny Battle. These basketball pros coached children ages 8 to16, and it was a great opportunity for members of the community to learn basketball basics straight from the experts. Participants also competed in shoot offs, and raffle winners received a variety of autographed prizes. Submitted by Jewish National Fund
