Kentucky's Jon Hood had 13 points and Josh Harrellson added 10 but SportsReach Red lost 77-76 to the Bayi Rockets today in game two of its nine-game tour in China.

Hood, who did not score in the opening-game win, was 5-for-12 from the field and 3-for-3 at the foul line. He was 0-for-5 from 3-point range. Hood had seven rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Harrellson had his second straight solid game as he was 5-for-9 from the field and also had four rebounds, three blocked shots and one assist.

"We had a long bus ride today to Tongnan, but tomorrow will be longer," said Robby Speer of SportsReach. "The one tomorrow will be four or five hours, which is the longest one we have. We had a great time today with message and group time.

"A banked in 3-pointer with two seconds left on the clock but well after the shot clock expired dealt Reach the loss."

Speer said his team had 17 first-half turnovers after making only 13 in the first game and had a 13-point lead midway of the second half.
