Ohio State's Alumni TBT Team Announces Name Change, Partial Roster

Ohio State's TBT team will have a new name.

Ohio State's alumni TBT team is back again this year, but under a new name: Carmen's Crew.

The team played under the name "Scarlet & Gray" for the past two years, but was forced to change it after Ohio State informed them they could no longer use the name, the team's head coach Scoonie Penn said on Twitter.

The announcement comes along with the revealing of at least a portion of this year's roster including former Buckeyes Jon Diebler, Aaron Craft, Evan Ravenel, David Lighty and the new additions of Lenzelle Smith Jr. and Deshaun Thomas. The roster also features returning non-Buckeyes Courtney Pigram and Leon Rogers.

William Buford and Jared Sullinger notably appeared in previous tournaments for the team, but were not on the initial roster.

This is not the only offseason team to feature former Ohio State players. Another TBT team, Big X, will feature recent Buckeye players Jae'Sean Tate, C.J. Jackson and Keyshawn Woods, with Andrew Dakich as a coach.

Greg Oden is also getting in on the offseason fun as the big man was picked up by the Aliens in the BIG3 draft.

Carmen's Crew opens its TBT play on July 19 in Columbus. You can get tickets now, and should get them early if you plan to attend.
