KTAR in Phoenix interview

23 Jul, 2009

Colangelo talks about changes with USA Basketball:

Back in ’04, with the terrible loss in Athens and the lack of real interest on a part of many players to represent their country, we needed to change the culture.  And, when you take over a program, usually you start at the bottom and you build up with a solid foundation, I started at the top as managing director of the men’s team… Everyone wants to play now, I think they got it.  The pipeline is in place, we have to keep it flowing and that’s the excitement for me.
