Our basketball team has 10 players, including Steve and Danny. We need to divide into two teams of 5 for an intra-squad scrimmage. In how many ways can we do this if Steve and Danny insist on playing on the same team?

I tried 8 choose 3 to pick the remaing 3 players that play with Steve and Danny. I then multiply by 2 because we have 2 teams, but I am not sure if this is correct. I got 112, please explain your answer.
