Jerry Colangelo’s first trip to West Point was one that he will never forget.
Two months later, Colangelo still talks about the academy’s history, iconic setting and cadets.
“I was in awe, I really was,” said Colangelo, the director of USA Basketball. “You feel proud just being there.”
Colangelo hopes his men’s national team, which includes Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and Derrick Rose, leaves with the same impression after they practice at the United States Military Academy on Aug. 18.
