At Miami: Transfer from New York University…Julie was the most improved player on the squad last winter and appears headed for a great year…he could make All-America…No less than brilliant as a ball handler…he has speed, dribbling and faking ability…plus shooting skill…With a year of experience behind him, Cohen made complete use of these skills last season and became the team’s quarterback. He scored 22 points against Miami of Ohio to give the Hurricanes a hard-earned win…he equaled his sophomore year single game high in scoring…he hit 20 or more points in four other games…and picked off 11 rebounds against Morehead to equal his sophomore year high against Brigham Young…Julie is the man around whom Coach Bruce Hale is building his 1961-62 Miami cage aggregation…Last summer Julie played in Jerusalem in the U.S. Maccabiah games…was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 1993.
