CHRISTIAN LAETTNER WEEKEND
Christian Laettner had one of the most successful college basketball careers in NCAA history. Laettner is the only player to ever start in four consecutive NCAA Final Fours and also lead Duke to back to back titles in 1991 and 1992. He is the all-time NCAA Tournament career scoring leader and was the winner of the Wooden and Naismith Awards as National Player of the Year in 1992. He was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the third overall pick and was also a member of the 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic Basketball team- the "Dream Team." Christian went on to become an All-Star during his 13 year NBA career, scoring over 11,000 career points in the process.
Christian continues to share his passion for basketball today. He travels the country through his Christian Laettner Basketball Academy, sharing his knowledge and love of the game with boys and girls of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. The CLBA's principle teaching is "PASS the ball- as the ball moves faster than any player on the court, only through the PASS. It is a lost and forgotten art form of the game of basketball." Yorkville Christian High School and Virtues of the Game Basketball Training are proud to have Christian visit us for this awesome weekend of basketball!
