Loyola (IL) beat them by like 17 in 2016, so they are by no means actual "all-stars". The later you play them, the more good professionals you get because players are returning to Spain for their official seasons.
So, let's see, we beat them by 9. So we are 8 points worse than Loyoa, who were a Final 4 team in 2018 and basically a .500 team in the Valley the year before? I'll take being 8 points worse than that.
Clemson only beat them by 10 in the same year, though. By that math, we're basically an ACC team. Bring on Duke.

I know things don't really work that way, but it's still fun to speculate.

In all seriousness, it's not a bad batch of result. Good to see the freshmen are all pretty confident.

Does Ricky Rubio get 12 fouls? Looks like the scorer wasn't working too hard to be accurate on the Barcelona side.

Pretty impressed with Williams's production on this trip. Have to see if it carries over

The coaches were high on Williams before he got on campus, and even more so after a few practices.

It looks like this team knows how to win games, which is something last year's team lacked, but it's difficult to tell what the level of competition was in Spain.

Does player c have any eligibility? 81 points is pretty stout although he's a bit of a ball hog

Looks like we have a player who will lead the team this year. Great attitude.

That is very nicely balanced scoring with 5 Owls in doubles figures and everyone else contributing. I don't want to get too excited about what is in effect pre-season games, but this team seems promising so far.
