Yet, in the United States, team handball is virtually nonexistent. In a way, that is good news for Fullerton College softball Coach Lisa Bassi. Team handball's obscurity here has helped Bassi, 28, make the U.S. Olympic Sports Festival West team--despite having virtually no experience playing the sport.
