Eberlein Drive fell to four-time reigning champion Overseas Elite last year, 70-58, and boasts a lineup with three former NBA players with six overseas pros.
Carmen's Crew is led by a roster of former Buckeyes that includes William Buford, Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler, LaQuinton Ross, David Lighty and Evan Ravenel.
In their first three games last weekend, Carmen's Crew downed Illinois BC 88-71 before besting a team that also included Ohio State alumni, Big X, 89-75 in the next round. Carmen's Crew then punched its ticket to this week's quarterfinals with an 85-71 win over the Red Scare, a team of Dayton alumni.
