I’m assuming #8 is equestrian dressage, which is not like putting dresses on a horse but has more to do with demonstrating an exquisite level of training and skill in various tasks that the horse possesses. 

Correct, I messed that up

it might be a tad more entertaining watching people try to put dresses on horses.

How could we lose with this Dream Team?

 

The roster was made up of former collegiate stars in Joey King (Minnesota), Dominique Jones (Fort Hays State), Kareem Maddox (Princeton) and Robbie Hummel (Purdue). 

 

There is a 3x3 circuit and these guys play on it.  At one point the US team was ranked #1 in the world and they won the 2019 FIBA cup.  King was the one name I didn't recognize as a 3x3 guy.  He replaced Canyon Barry (aka Rick Barry's kid) who was out with a back injury.
