#4 - Survive and Advance A Lasting Legacy

    • Basketball

The Coast Guard men’s basketball team had all the pieces in place to contend for a conference championship in 2006-07. This was going to be their year.

But their grand plans were disrupted by a star player’s departure.

Nonetheless, one player’s departure left an opportunistic opening for two players to fill. And the arrival of a new freshmen class, one with its own personality, also helped fill the void.

And then the season took some strange turns.

This episode looks back at the worst of times, an eventful regular season that set the stage for … who knows what?
