WEST POINT, N.Y. - Members of the Army men's basketball team were on the court Sunday to participate in a pair of Hoops for Troops clinics at Christl Arena.
Ten Army players joined National Basketball Association legends Chris Mullin, Felipe Lopez and Pat Garrity, as well as Women's National Basketball Association legend Teresa Weatherspoon in instructing the interactive clinics.
Throughout the day, each of the legends addressed the group, offering words of advice to the children participating and to the Army players in attendance.
The initial clinic began at 2 p.m. and featured boys and girls from kindergarten to third grade. Participants were instructed in a variety of drills, including passing, shooting and dribbling and a run through a challenging obstacle course.

Among the Army men's players were seniors Sean Billerman, Maxwell Lenox, Milton Washington and Mo Williams, and juniors Dylan Cox, Kevin Ferguson, Tanner Plomb, Travis Rollo, Larry Toomey and Kyle Wilson.
