    THE RUSSIANS ARE MEMBERS OF MEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM THAT WILL PLAY SIX GAMES IN THE UNITED STATES AS PART OF A STATE DEPARTMENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM.

    LAST YEAR AN AMERICAN TEAM VISITING RUSSIA WON SIX STRAIGHT. A RUSSIAN WOMEN'S TEAM WILL ALSO MAKE THE TOUR WHICH OPENS IN NEW YORK'S MADISON SQUARE GARDEN THURSDAY NIGHT. SOCCER IS THE BIG GAME IN RUSSIA. BUT BASKETBALL IS GAINING FAVOUR.
