Team USA had little problem with the Dominican Republic (Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE)
Former Pitt guard Ronald Ramon just missed out on qualifying for the 2012 Olympics in London last week. But the former Panther still got a taste of playing against the Dream Team.
Let's just say it went about as expected as the Americans routed Ramon's squad. The good news? Ramon got plenty of playing time. More on his night and the box score after the jump.He played a whopping 24 minutes in the game - just behind NBA teammate Al Horford, who played 25. And with the U.S. getting so many of their guys on the court, Horford and Ramon played the most out of anyone on either team.
The good news ends there, though, as Ramon didn't play all that well. He shot a dismal 1-7 from the field (including 1-6 from three-point range) for a total of five points. Ramon added two assists, but also had five turnovers.
Not ideal, but it's tough to be too hard on Ramon, going up against the best team in the world.
