“It’s nice that those guys are coming out. It just shows the type of organization that this is,” rookie Joe Wieskamp said. “You have two of your better players, they just had a game last night, played their hearts out, and fought back to get that win, and then they come up to Austin tonight to watch us play.” Unfortunately, Austin picked up a 108-78 loss in front of the former Austin guards but the San Antonio rookies did well. Wieskamp finished with 14 points and six rebounds while Josh Primo led Austin with a team-high 18 points and six assists.
Following the end of the game, Murray and White went above and beyond. Rather than exiting the arena for the drive back to San Antonio, they went into the Austin locker room to speak with the players to give them words of advice. “They came into the locker room and said ‘hi’ to us,” Wieskamp said. “Basically, it’s just a journey. Play together and things will work out.”
