This is the third TBT team with multiple Buckeyes preparing for the 2020 tourney.
Carmen's Crew, the defending champions, returns the core of its team. It's led by Jared Sullinger as the coach and Evan Turner as the general manager, featuring Aaron Craft, David Lighty, Dallas Lauderdale, Evan Ravenel, Jon Diebler and William Buford. Big X will feature Andre Wesson, Andrew Dakich, Keyshawn Woods and CJ Jackson.
Great Lakes Elite doesn't have a locked-in spot to the 2020 TBT. If you want to help get them into the summer basketball spectacle of nostalgia, here are some instructions.
