For Army's John Emezie emigrating from Nigeria difficult, but worth it

For Army West Point men's basketball player John Emezie life growing up was not an average one. When John was just one-year old he and his parents immigrated from Nigeria, leaving behind two of his siblings. After a few long and hard years of adjusting to their new home in the United States, John and his parents were finally reunited with their entire family. But the Nigerian ideals were never far from sight, helping transform John into the person he is today.
