Wille Stephens, who has 42 years experience in youth coaching, travelled all the way from Houston, Texas to attend the academy.
St. Edward Head Coach Eric Flannery, who has worked with USA Basketball for over 15 years, was key to bringing the event to Lakewood.
USA Basketball is the governing body of the US Olympic Basketball teams, so they brought along plenty of Olympic team items.
