They made 26-of-31 free shots (83.9 percent) during the game. 30 personal fouls committed by IR helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Americans were the main players on the court. Guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) stepped up and scored 26 points and 7 rebounds (made all of his twelve free throws !!!) for the winners and forward David Jackson (201-88, college: Penn St.) chipped in 18 points and 12 rebounds.
