During the NBA lockout last fall, Under Armour came up with a way to still have their athletes hitting the hardwood and playing in front of fans, as they launched the "Are You From Here?" Tour that hopped along the east coast for a string of four exhibition games.
Last night, the brand held a similar game right in their backyard at St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, matching up UA's core of players against some of BMore's best.
With Brandon Jennings, DeAndre Jordan, Derrick Williams and Kemba Walker leading the way for Team Under Armour, it was actually the brand's newest addition in Will Barton who stole the show and carried a team that also featured Josh Selby. Barton, a rookie for the Portland Trail Blazers, poured in 72 points -- yes...seventy-two -- with a running 40-minute clock and led Team BMore to an upset 124-109 win.
Check out several highlights from last night's game, including Barton's constant energy and playmaking and some monster dunks from the beastly DeAndre Jordan.
