World Basketball Festival: Puerto Rico vs. Brazil

words_Jordan Hagedorn

A couple weeks ago Friday, the Puerto Rico National Team faced Brazil, which pitted NBA players from Puerto Rico Carlos Arroyo and JJ Bareja against Brazil’s Anderson Varejao and Leandro Barbosa. The action started slow but got better in the second half with Puerto Rico pulling away, eventually winning by 30. Puerto Rico native Bobbito Garcia announced the game and the crowd got into it once the action heated up. We caught up with Bobbito the following week to talk about the WBF.
