71. God Doesn’t Play Zone Defense

Published: September 22, 2020

How does a college basketball career turn into lessons about life and faith, and why doesn’t God play Zone Defense? On today’s podcast Jim Friend, Managing Director at Changing Our World, goes one on one with Jeff Balistrere, author of the popular book, “God Doesn’t Play Zone Defense” available on Amazon.

Jeff Balistrere was born into a coaching and teaching family. He played college basketball under coaching legend Jim “Bow Tie” Phelan at Mount Saint Mary’s University, where his team made the NCCA and NIT tournaments. After basketball, Jeff continues to enjoy a business career in information technology for both start-up and Fortune 500 companies. Jeff, his wife Margot, and their children live in Vienna, VA.
