In the gym at 6:30 AM today working to get better was just breakfast for us today. We laced them up at noon for a hard-fought exhibition vs the Israeli JR National team in their training facility. This team will be traveling to Macedonia next week for the World Championships. While we lost the game 66-64, we got a lot out of the exhibition. Most importantly, we learned about our team and what we need to do to get better. Our Israel Connect program starts tomorrow with a trip to Tel Aviv. Of course, that will only be after we get our 6:30 AM practice in.
