There's nothing like getting the band back together.
After going up early, Carmen's Crew held the lead the rest of the way. David Lighty scored 17 points and dished out seven assists as Aaron Craft recorded four steals to lead a balanced effort, resulting in an 88-71 victory over Illinois BC.
The Crew dominated the vast majority of the game but Illinois BC came within 10 midway through the third quarter. After the team regrouped, however, the Bucks went on a 20-5 run to end the quarter.
Illinois was not done, however, getting it down to single digits in the fourth before the alumni sprinted to the finish line.
Carmen's Crew played aggressively all night long, picking up Illinois in the backcourt and scoring 38 points in the paint. The alumni team also forced eight turnovers.
William Buford added 16 points, Laquinton Ross scored 15 points, and Evan Ravenel had 13 to help round out the team's scoring.
Carmen's Crew will face Big X, which features C.J. Jackson, Keyshawn Woods and head coach Andrew Dakich, tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. on ESPN2.
