ESPN’s CBB commentators “enlist” while preparing for Armed Forces Classic

ESPN college basketball analysts Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams headed to Germany earlier this week ahead of tonight’s Armed Forces Classic (6 p.m. ET, ESPN) coverage.

At Ramstein Air Base, they participated in a number of activities, including military-working dog training, rappel tower, a parachute simulator and vehicle rollover training.

A glimpse of their experiences can be seen in the photos above and in Williams’ and Greenberg’s tweets below. Karl Ravech, who is calling play by play of the Classic, flew with No. 11 West Virginia and No. 25 Texas A&M’s “team flights” on the U.S. Air Force Base.

“It has been an honor to interact and spend time with the men and women on the base,” said Greenberg. “Their commitment, trust, pride and attention to detail was evident in everything they did. They all enlisted for different reasons, but their love for what they do and for their country is shared amongst each and every person here.”
