Team Scarlet and Gray is back in 2018 for The Basketball Tournament, and has added a fresh face for its second season.
Former Buckeye big man BJ Mullens is set to join Scarlet and Gray for the 2018 tournament, joining a roster that features returning players William Buford, Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler, Dallas Lauderdale, David Lighty and Evan Ravenel.

In one season (2008-09) at Ohio State, Mullens averaged 8.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, but started just two games. He is currently playing in the NBA G-League.
A press release from The Basketball Tournament did not mention Jared Sullinger, who played on last year's team, leading the team in scoring on its way to the final four.
Scarlet and Gray will play its first round games in Columbus, at Capital University’s The Capital Center Performance Arena. The games will take place July 20-22.
The Ohio State alumni team isn't the only team in the field to feature former Buckeyes, as Jae'Sean Tate, Andrew Dakich and Kam Williams will join a Big Ten alumni team called Big X.
Scarlet and Gray will once again be coached by Ohio State Director of Player Development Scoonie Penn and Portland Trail Blazers forward Evan Turner.
