The international flavor of LMU's roster includes Australia (Joshua Spiers, David Humphries), Slovakia (Simon Krajcovic), Czech Republic (Petr Herman), Zambia (Patson Siame), Nigeria (Godwin Okonji, Ayodeji Egbeyemi) and Croatia (Marin Mornar). The LMU Sports Network took a look at the vast differences of the Lions' roster through language.
From two different countries, Spain made them teammates for the first time, now both find themselves back in Spain with the Lions.
Showing its reach across the globe, LMU continued its tour while sending back some well wishes as they spent their final day in Madrid before flying to Barcelona on Sunday morning. The Lions had a full pre game practice, followed by the coaches participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They then took on the Angola National Team, who is participating in the upcoming FIBA World Championships in Spain.
Playing together for the first time, the Lions overcame two double-digit deficits, different rules within the international game, differences in how officials call games, a gym with no air conditioning, foul trouble and playing 5,000 miles from home to earn a 90-85 victory in overtime.
