As soon as the Goodman League held on for a 135-134 win over Los Angeles' Drew League in Saturday night's "Capital Punishment" exhibition, talk turned to a potential rematch in Los Angeles. Already, a tentative date has been set for this game. Drew League commissioner Dino Smiley said that he has circled September 10 as a possible date for the rematch.
Via Kyle Weidie, writing for ESPN Los Angeles:
Smiley, who sounded content with getting a shot to win on the road, said a tentative date for a rematch has been set for Sept. 10 in Los Angeles. There's a 70 percent chance it happens, he admits. The key, he says, is exposure and sponsors.
The Drew League also sent out the following tweets on Sunday.
