The Step Back

The World of Five-Star

The recruiting world ran through Howard Garfinkel’s Five-Star camp. That didn’t sit well with anyone outside of Garf’s orbit. To help tell the story of how the NCAA and shoe companies took over Garf’s turf in the summertime, we focus on some new voices who lived through the transition: Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery, legendary broadcaster Bill Raftery, camp head coaches Jerry Wainwright and Dave Odom, and legendary coach Hubie Brown. Host Tate Frazier helps break down Five-Star’s fit in the new basketball landscape.
