This team is going to be fun to watch - quelling the dog days of the offseason with some quality hoops.
I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...
I'll be there watching, and this should be fun. They really were the best team in the tournament last year but got totally jobbed in that semifinal game vs a team that was playing for charity. The whole thing was clearly rigged in their favor. I do hope they have improved the officiating all around. Last year a lot of the games were just very poorly and inconsistently officiated. That "charity" team got a lot of favorable calls in many games, but other games were just downright awful. If this thing made any money at all I hope they at least used some of it to get halfway decent refs.
That's some crazy talent. I'd love to watch it in person. Have a blast.
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Scoonie should be playing. He looks great. We are the same age and dude looks like he could drop 12 and 5 in an NBA game while I look like I always say yes to extra cheese.
High and tight boo boo
Unless it's nonfat cottage, saying "yes" to extra cheese is always the right answer!
Haha. I signed in just to tell you this actually made me laugh. Well played, sir!
Oden looks 60 now for real.
It blows my mind that he's only 30...
Feeling dumb here. What is this tournament ?
Here is a pretty good summary of what The Basketball Tournament is, and who it features. This is Scarlet and Gray's second summer participating, falling in the semifinals last year. Winner take-all $2 million tournament.
As a hoops junkie, I'm kind of excited about this, especially given the Thad Matta All Star team aspect and the fact that most of it is televised. Pretty funny that Dakich tried to join the team, and got rebuffed (and gently heckled). He started his own team, so good for him.
There's a pretty entertaining fan contest that goes along with it. You can register HERE.
I kind of wish Dakich was allowed on the team over Battle. Even if Battle is the better player I like the idea of having nobody but Buckeyes.
If you were playing for $2 million though, you might go with the more proven player.
Does anyone know if tickets will be available at the Capital Univ door on game day ? Or is it strictly online ?
This is a fantastic way to get through till football rolls through! Other than DT and Conley this is now a collection of my favorite Buckeyes. Grateful to have them make a run!
I would rather be on hand with 10 men then elsewhere with 10,000 - Timur Lenk
