TBT is getting ready to kick off again, after looking at the rosters there's several points of interest for UConn fans:

CitiTeam Blazers - has both Jeff Adrien and Jerome Dyson on the roster. They also have Jordan Hamilton (Daniel Hamilton's brother) as a player of interest. They are in the Salt Lake bracket and go up against Team Freddette in their first game who's most notable player is former Houston standout Rob Gray.

L.A. Cheaters - which is a Drew League affiliated team has Marcus Williams on the squad. They're also in the Salt Lake bracket, so they could, in theory, face Adrien/Dyson's squad in a couple of rounds. They're playing a UCLA alumni team in the first round with guys like the Wear twins, and Isaac Hamilton.

That's really it for players. Andre Drummond is listed as the "head coach" of a team of nobodies called Tampa 20/20. Literally don't recognize a single name on their roster.

Rodney Purvis was announced earlier in the year as a member of team CP3 which actually looks pretty decent (PJ Hairston, Dez Wells), but he's not on the roster page on the TBT website, so not sure what's going on there.

Anyway, all that really matters is that Boeheim's Army doesn't win.

Boeheim's Army recruited a non-Syracuse alum, so my respect level for that university fell even further.

Unless they pick up Carmelo, they probably won't win.

22. Cititeam Blazers, No. 6 seed (Salt Lake region)
The CitiTeam Blazers might be a No. 6 seed, but Jeff Adrien has NBA experience, and he was the fifth-leading scorer (17.2 PPG) in the Israeli League in 2017-18. Add in five-year NBA vet Jordan Hamilton and former UConn guard Jerome Dyson and the Blazers could make a longer run than their seeding might predict.

37. L.A. Cheaters, No. 5 seed (Salt Lake region)
Coached by Los Angeles basketball legend Casper Ware Sr., the L.A. Cheaters are an original Drew League squad with a dynamic duo in their backcourt. The younger Casper Ware had a short stint with the 76ers in 2014, and he has been one of the top guards in the TBT, while Marcus Williams (215 games of NBA experience) will be his sidekick.

Anyone know why UConn doesn't have an alumni team? Seems like half the teams are alumni teams.

Casper Ware and Marcus Williams is an awesome, awesome backcourt.
