Transcript In the second round, the All Stars faced the Spanish National Team and playing before a boisterous crowd, they lost to the host club 93-77. The teams were separated by five points at the half, but Spain came out blistering in the second stanza and cruised to the victory. "The Spanish club was very physical and they were much older than our kids. I thought we played well, but they just wore us down," commented McLaughlin, who, before coming to Fordham coached at Harvard for eight years. The All Stars were led by a hot shooting Mike Vreeswyk (Temple) who connected for 18 points. Derrick Sanders (Illinois State) contributed 17. Upon the completion of the Seville Tournament, the All Stars flew to Madrid, where they took in the sights before heading to Toledo and another tournament. Things were not going to get any easier in Toledo—not only were the Spanish and Russian National Teams waiting to greet the Americans, but the powerhouse Italian National Team was also on the welcoming committee. The first game was a rematch with the Russians and the All Stars paced by double figure scoring from four players went on to a strong 98-76 win. Randolph Keyes, the 1987 NIT MVP led the visitors with 19 points and 11 rebounds. In the second round, the Spanish National Team was again an ungracious host as they handed the All Stars a 93-80 drubbing. The frontcourt tandem of Keyes and Shelton Jones teamed up for a combined 31 points and 15 rebounds in the losing effort. The All Stars were to lose one more game on European soil before going on a tear and winning their last four straight games. The Italian National Team, one of the best in Europe, overwhelmed the younger All Stars 98-85. 'Again, playing against older more mature teams who play all year long is a real challenge," explained McLaughlin. "The style of play is much more physical and there's obviously no home court advantage," he added. After a brief stopover in Madrid, the travellers left Spain for France. Four days in Paris, the "City of Lights" was first on the agenda. The visitors did some sightseeing, shopping, a lot of eating ... and, they managed to squeeze in a game against the Chinese National Team. It was a close contest throughout, but the All Stars behind Jones' 29 points and 11 rebounds held on for a 87-83 win. Keyes followed with 16 while Johns on and Seton Hall's James Major chipped in 10 points apiece. The final leg of the journey found the touring team in Gravelines, a bustling town outside of Paris. Gravelines was the host team in a six team tournament that included the Chinese National Team and top club teams from Spain, Brazil and France. The All Stars broke the century mark as they cruised to a 100-85 victory over Orthez, one of the top club teams in France. The Americans had five players in double figures, and were once again led by the Keyes-Jones combination. Keyes finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds while Jones collected 20 points and 9 rebounds. In the second round, the visitors broke 100, beating Caja Bilbao, a team from Spain, whose top scorer was a former St. John's player, Jeff Allen. However, Allen's 26 points was not enough to overcome another balanced scoring attack by the All Stars who had six players in double figures. Johnson led all scorers with 18 points while Jones had 16 and Major followed with 15. The championship game proved to be another easy win and another 100 point game—the All Stars spoiled Gravelines bid to win their own tournament by defeating them handily, 100-72. Major, Jones and Keyes each scored 18 points, while Vreeswyk followed with 13. 19
