“Both teams are in a similar situation in this game,” said Kevin Boyle. “The World Team also will have just a handful of practices to come together. Some of our players have played together and played international basketball and some have not. We are going to try to develop our chemistry and our rotation quickly and get our guys to understand their roles. It’s not an all-star game, and we will be playing to win. Not everyone will have the same amount of shots or minutes. It will be whoever is most deserving based on practices and preparation.”
