Always a Brave video-

And ESPN's Joe Lunardi evaluates the Midwest Region. He thinks the Ohio State alumni team (Scarlet & Gray) is so loaded they will breeze through the Regional. He picks the St. Louis University alumni team (Majerus SLU Crew) as the runner-up, and doesn't give the Bradley alumni a second thought-

The Ohio State Alumni team (Scarlet & Gray) that is playing this weekend at the Renaissance Coliseum in The Basketball Tournament is the #2 seed in the Midwest Region.
https://www.thetournament.com/bracket

Their team was supposed to include former #1 overall NBA draft pick 7-footer Greg Oden playing with them. However, he is a last minute scratch and will not play.

He will be replaced on their roster by former NBA player Jared Sullinger.
Sullinger was a 1st round draft pick by the Celtics in 2012 and he had a pretty good NBA career until this past season. He signed with the Toronto raptors, then suffered a broken bone in his foot and had surgery before the season. He never recovered very well, spent much of the season in the NBA D-League, and then was traded in February to the Phoenix Suns and immediately waived and released.

Ahah...we have our answer....

Lawrence Wright got asked about the score on his Facebook and his answer was this:

"That was the third period when we played zone and press. Regular game we won." **

JJ Tauai & Kevin Jones appear to be working out with the team but are not on the TBT roster
