Laettner, a two-time national champion at Duke University, and former NBA All-Star and Olympic Dream Team Gold Medalist, expressed his enthusiasm over the clinic. “We are looking forward to partnering with two great college programs there in Bemidji. Dan (Hovestol) has done a great job in building the programs at Oak Hills and bringing a fine program like Bemidji State on board.
