Ohio State's alumni team Scarlet and Gray made a run to The Basketball Tournament final four last summer, and is gearing up for another run.
According to a report from 105.7 The Zone in Columbus, Scoonie Penn said there is a "good chance" Jared Sullinger – Scarlet and Gray's leading scorer from last year – will return for the 2018 tournament. In addition, the squad has added Talor Battle, a former Penn State star.
Battle has played overseas each year since graduating from Penn State in 2011, when he led the Nittany Lions to a NCAA Tournament appearance.
He is set to join an Ohio State alumni roster that includes William Buford, Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler, Dallas Lauderdale, David Lighty, B.J. Mullens and Evan Ravenel.
Scarlet and Gray could very well play against the likes of Jae'Sean Tate, Kam Williams and Andrew Dakich, who formed their own team with fellow Big Ten alumni. Their team, Big X, will need to win a fan vote to get into the tournament. If they do however, they would likely be put into the same region as Scarlet and Gray, which could pit the two teams together in Columbus with games being played on campus at Capital University.
