Jae'Sean Tate is reuniting with a few of his former college teammates.

The former Buckeye will team up with Andrew Dakich, CJ Jackson and Keyshawn Woods to play for Big X in this summer's The Basketball Tournament, which begins in a few weeks. As the No. 9 overall seed, their opening-round game is against Jackson TN Underdawgs and will tip off on July 4.

Tate has spent the past couple of years beginning his professional career. He played his first post-Ohio State year with the Telenet Giants in Antwerp, Belgium. Then, he joined the Sydney Kings last year in Australia's National Basketball League, earning first-team All-NBL honors.

Prior to his professional career, Tate played four years at Ohio State. The hard-nosed forward averaged 11.7 points, six rebounds and 1.7 assists in 28 minutes per game across all four seasons.

Though Big X added a Buckeye on Monday, it lost a couple of others.

Kaleb and Andre Wesson will not play in The Basketball Tournament. Neither are listed on the team's roster anymore, and Big X's Twitter account said in a reply that they're no longer participating because "it was in their best professional interest not to play in the tournament this summer."
