The Utah staff is coaching the team, and Krystkowiak implemented a defense-based sub rotation for the game, according to the release. Every time the Dragons scored seven points, Krystkowiak subbed out all five players on the floor with new faces.
Last month, Krystkowiak described the tactic as one former Arizona coach Lute Olsen used when Krystkowiak was a player on similar trips abroad. Apparently it worked for his team as well.
Utes Brandon Taylor finished with 7 points, and Jeremy Olsen had 4 points.
The All-Star team is 2-0 so far in China, after getting a win over the Chinese University All-Stars 73-47 on Wednesday. The team faces its final challenge, against the Yao Ming-owned Shanghai Sharks, on Saturday.
