DOLPHINS THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Day 5
The coaches and our team got to sleep in a little later because it was a Beach Day in the morning.
Our lunch today was a like a normal one in the states with chicken wings, that were a little different looking, and French fries.
We left for the game early today to go to the "Market" downtown. Unfortunately, most of the shops were closed b/c of the holiday (Presidential inauguration we think?) but we found just enough of the locals who wanted to take our cash. The players got a kick out of the "bartering system.” I think everyone got something they liked. And YES I got a little something for my wife and Champ!
Later in the evening, we won vs. San Carlos, 84-71, in our fourth game in four days. I am very proud of our guys for the way they carried themselves on the court with Mucho, Mucho, Mucho fouls being called against us, playing on a 9-3/8 foot basket and having a very brief warm-up while getting taped outside. Overall, we ended the trip with a 4-0 record! Each coach, including myself got a WIN.
