ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - One of the most respected figures in all of basketball, George Raveling, visited with the Knights on campus Friday and spoke to the team following its practice. Nike's director of international basketball, Raveling is a renowned speaker who travels the globe instructing on leadership and the value of working together as a team.
"Coach Raveling has a wonderful message and is an incredibly inspiring person and speaker," UCF head coach Donnie Jones said. "It was great for him to take time out of his schedule and meet with our team and talk about some of the things that he values and thinks are important for our young men, not only on the basketball court, but in school and in life."
Raveling's talk to the Knights came one week before they open the 2013-14 campaign, their first in the American Athletic Conference, one of the premier leagues in the country.
