The energetic resident team jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

Faculty-staff team coach Joe Gough complimented his team’s younger adversaries for their athleticism and skill.

“This team can shoot, pass and run well and were tough on the boards. We need to make some adjustments for next year,” he said.

Gough said that his team struggled without the perimeter shooting and hustle of Department of Medicine chair Don Rockey, M.D., who was sidelined with a back injury.

Looking ahead, Gough said that the loss will sting for a while, but the department plans to host this game in June 2014.

“A tradition has begun,” he said.
