Audrey and Bruce Carlson of Newington, Conn., traveled to Chile at the end of 2003 to watch some basketball. Their daughter, Leslie, was a member of the U.S. open women's basketball team in the 10th Pan American Maccabi Games. Leslie's parents also went as scouts. "They came to Chile to find me a Jewish husband," she said. Leslie didn't need their help. A resident of the Upper East Side and a graduate of George Washington University, which she attended on a basketball scholarship, Leslie is returning to Maccabi competition next week.
