So what happened to everyone from the 2007 and 2008 Coast Guard men’s basketball teams?

First, they got on a bus for one heck of a ride back to campus!

Then, they went on with their lives. In some cases, that meant Ring Dance and graduation. For others, that meant continuing their time as cadets.

In our final episode, we catch up with all the key people to find out where they are and what they’re doing.

And we answer the question: What is the lasting legacy of those Coast Guard basketball teams?


A Lasting Legacy is a multi-part audio documentary that remembers the amazing and improbable runs of the 2006-07 and 2007-08 Coast Guard Academy men’s basketball team and the 2007-08 Academy women’s basketball team.

It’s based on 40 interviews with former players, coaches, rivals, and others.
