Battle 4 Atlantis: UCF and Charleston Warming Up!

Inside the UCF “locker room” – normally a small hotel meeting room – players lace up their shoes while sitting in a semi-circle of painted white chairs. Most of the Knights are grooving on iPod music via ear phones. The room is otherwise quiet. The coaches are scrawling out game tactics in blue markers on a large white board.

Atlantis security guard Stephen Trembley bars all visitors from entering. But in the Bahamas, they do this kind of work with a smile.

But one thing is missing from these Atlantis locker rooms.

Showers.

After the game, the players will have to return to their rooms to scrub up. That’s one sweaty elevator ride with the rest of the sun-baked tourists.

Now 1:15 here in Nassau and the teams just took the court for warmup. UCF and Charleston. Stretching and jump shots.

Charleston has already worked up a sweat, shooting and rebounding. Some of UCF’s players are still stretching with bands. Advantage: Charleston.
