Just 17 hours after beating India in the opening round, Sacramento State was back on the court for the second round of the 38th-annual William Jones Cup in Taiwan. This time, however, the Hornets dropped a 63-48 decision to South Korea. In a game where neither team shot particularly well, it was South Korea that combined to outscore Sacramento State, 31-17, in the second and third quarters to take control of the game. The Hornets shot .313 (21-67) from the field, .181 (2-11) from the 3-point line and .444 (4-9) from the free throw line. South Korea shot .391 (25-64) from the field, .353 (6-17) from distance and .700 (7-10) from the free throw line. No player from either team scored more than 11 points. Both teams moved their record to 1-1 at the tournament as the Hornets beat India, 62-60, in the first round while South Korea fell to Egypt, 74-73. Byun Ki Hoon (187-G/F-89) stepped up with 11 points for South Korea. A pair of Hornets scored in double figures, including Nick Hornsby (201-F) (10 points, 10 rebounds, 4 steals) and Justin Strings (201-F) (10 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals). Hornsby has noted double figures in rebounds both games of the tournament while Strings has scored in double digits both games thus far. Center Eric Stuteville (211-C) was in foul trouble the majority of the game, finishing with six points, six rebounds, two steals and four fouls in 19 minutes. Grant Dressler (198-G/F) added six points and two steals, Jeff Wu had five points, three rebounds and two assists, and Izayah Mauriohooho-Le'afa (188-G-96) finished with five points. Joshua Patton (203-F) chipped in four rebounds and Trevis Jackson had two steals. Sacramento State did have 14 steals, including at least one swipe from seven different players. South Korea held a 36-35 edge in the rebounding department and had eight blocked shots. The Hornets, who are playing eight games over a stretch of nine days in Taiwan, will play again on Sunday night at midnight PDT against Iran.
