Nova's Wright, 76ers' Brown formed friendship in West Bank

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The bond that connects Jay Wright and Brett Brown was forged in the Holy Land, where the Philadelphia-area coaches taught basketball on floors lined with rubble, bent rims and no nets.

The setting was far removed from anything that resembled Brown's "Process" with the Philadelphia 76ers or the powerhouse Villanova program built by Wright. But on a 2015 goodwill summer trip to the Middle East designed to unite children from communities in conflict through basketball, Wright and Brown received an education on a journey through Jerusalem and Ramallah that has shaped both men.

"To get on a bus and have an 18-year-old with an AK-47, Jay and I are on the bus and you've got some young people that are checking us all out, it's a little bit nerve-wracking," Brown said. "Finally, we end up getting to Ramallah in the West Bank, and we're on a desert dirt playground with a broken hoop doing a clinic. The experience and spending time with him was great."
