The day once again has gone by fast. We had breakfast this morning around 8:45 a.m. and then we headed to shoot around at 9:15 a.m. After shoot around we got back to the hotel around 11:00 a.m. and then I went and chilled with the other 2 foreigners until it was lunch time.
For lunch we had tomato soup, spaghetti, and chicken. They always feed you a lot of food here in Turkey ha. There is no way I could eat all of it. After lunch, I took a short nap and then it was off to the game.
We played Galatasaray today in a friendly game. They are always either the 1st or 2nd team in Turkey. We were with them most of the game, but ended up losing by 16 points - 76-60. The score is not indicative of the game. That honestly was the most we were losing by during the whole game if I remember correctly. These pre-season tournaments are great opportunities to work on things that we need to work on individually and as a team. I am excited to see how our team will do this year!
After the game we stuck around and watched the other 2 teams in the tournament play for a little bit. We then came back to the hotel and got dinner. After dinner, I was hanging out with my roommate and also my teammate from Hungary. We were talking and looking at different videos on the computer. FUN TIMES with teammates :).
Tomorrow we play at 6:30 p.m. which is 11:30 a.m. EST. I will let you know how the game goes :)!!
