Round two of the UK pros against the Dominican National Team...this time in the 'ville.
The KFC Yum! Center almost sold out for the game...lots of blue again...cheering on former UK stars like Rajon Rondo.
The problem was the lights didn't originally come right back on after the player intros...so they played in semi-darkness for most of the first quarter. John Wall finding the hoop on the drive.
Former Cards teaming up on this one....Edgar Sosa to Francisco Garcia for a three-ball.
Sosa driving and finding Al Horford for a jam.
Then it's Sosa with one of his four long-balls in the first half...he had 15 at the break.
The UK pros trying to keep pace as the lights came back on in full...Josh Harrellson with a three off the pick and pop.
John Calipari says you got to guard that guy out there.
Demarcus Cousins banging inside...a hoop and a foul.
Rondo driving and hanging and scoring.
But the Dominicans had their way again...Sosa with all fifteen of his points in the first half...they led eleven at halftime...and won it without some of their stars playing in the second half...91-86 over the UK Pros.
