With only a couple weeks left to prepare, the Crusaders gathered Tuesday evening to practice for the upcoming rematch versus Bloom. While running drills with Head Coach Pat Richardson, practice was interrupted by a guest who announced his presence with authority through the public address system. Moments later, the stage curtain was raised to reveal the Crusaders celebrity coach, Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic. Howard was welcomed by the team and coaching staff as he stayed for the remainder of practice as he drew up plays with Coach Richardson and even got in on the action himself.
