    It is amazing that when Cal gets his foot in the door in the USA Basketball program he has to take a team to a conflict zone. He will miss out on the chance to coach some of his own players as well as several top recruits that were scared away by the location. AND the NCAA just happens to change the rule this particular year where ALL coaches can come and evaluate these training camps. Completely takes away the advantage any other coach has ever had.
