A youth team of Triqui Indians from Oaxaca’s Academy of Indigenous Basketball won a tournament in Mexico earlier this year even though most of them elected not to wear shoes.

Later, they played a different team, the San Antonio Spurs, who also elected to go barefoot.

The lack of shoes may have thrown off the Spurs, since the Triqui boys defeated them 10-4.
