Scarlet and Gray, the team comprised of mostly Ohio State alums competing in The Basketball Tournament, won its first two games over the weekend by a combined 29 points.

The team is made up of former Buckeyes including Aaron Craft, Jared Sullinger, Jon Diebler, William Buford, David Lighty, Dallas Lauderdale and Evan Ravenel. The head coach is former All-American point guard Scoonie Penn with an assist from former national player of the year Evan Turner.

Scarlet and Gray's Sweet 16 matchup is scheduled for noon Saturday on ESPN in Brooklyn against a team made up of alums from Bradley University. Should the team of former Ohio State stars win it would play the winner of the game between Marquette and Kansas State alums for a spot in the Final Four.

The winner of The Basketball Tournament takes home a $2 million prize.

On Thursday, the former Buckeyes were back at Value City Arena for a practice to tune-up for Saturday's game. Check out some highlights in the video posted above. 

Eleven Warriors will have an additional update on the Scarlet and Gray team Friday.
