Before leaving for China with the Pac-12 All-Stars, coach Larry Krystkowiak said he wanted his team to emphasize energy and defense.
The team achieved that in their exhibition against a Chinese pro team, beating the Jiangsu Dragons 85-63, a Utah release announced Thursday morning. Arizona State guard Bo Barnes led the team with 18 points, and Ute forward Jordan Loveridge had 13 points and four rebounds.
The All-Stars took over in the second quarter, outscoring the Dragons 25-8 during the period. While Jiangsu stats were not available, the All-Stars shot 47 percent from the field.
