Hall of Fame coach assists cast in play about recruiting

WATERFORD, Conn. (AP) Actor Sam Kebede went to rehearsal hoping to get some insights about what it's like to be recruited by a big-time college basketball coach. Hall-of-Famer Jim Calhoun was happy to assist.

The coach who led UConn to three national championships before retiring in 2012 is serving as a technical adviser on the production of a new play, "Exposure," which is being put on this weekend at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford.

Kebede portrays a player experiencing the world of AAU basketball and the dark side of recruiting.
