    Need to call Deshaun Thomas asap and offer a high cut % for next year.

    His game would kill in this pickup setting. Inside and out.

    Dear lord yes! Can you imagine a lineup of Craft, DT, Sully, Lighty, and Rodgers/Evan/Dallas...damn, that would be nice.

    Would have helped for Battle to not have a wedding this weekend as well. Could have used his scoring this game

    This team had too many bigs, not enough wings or guards. They couldn't match up with team fredette today. No need for Ravenel, Lauderdale, Oden, Mullen, and Sullinger. Sullinger could beat up teams when he has the size advantage but Cooley is just as big as him. Mullen might have helped because he was a true 7 footer and was more athletic than Oden.

    Battle would have helped, they needed another guard or wing. I can't think of a wing to add to the Buford, Lighty, and Diebler. Maybe Sam Thompson. Deshaun Thomas might have help with scoring.

    If they want to win next year, they need guys committed for all 3 weeks. Also just do a even split to everyone but get a roster full of people they can actually use.

    Deshun Thomas would be a help or if they could get Tate. Maybe LaQuinton Ross or Loving but they are as likely to have an off game as on.

    All 4 of them would help balance off the roster alot better. Get rid of Ravenel, Oden, Mullen, and Pilgram. Make sure Battle and Sully can play all the games.

    That DII or NAIA dude for Fredette was a killer. I will admit I dont see a lot of TBT, but Fredette was more crisp and efficient with their execution than any team I can remember.

    Overseas Elite looking for its fourth straight The Basketball Tournament title tonight

    Who wouldn’t want to capsize the unsinkable?

    The members of the Overseas Elite know the desire’s there, now that they’re 24-0 overall after defeating the Golden Eagles 85-60 Thursday in The Basketball Tournament semifinal at Morgan State.

    “We don’t want anyone to beat us, to knock us off our throne. Psychologically, we come out expecting to win every game,” said point guard Errick McCollum.

    Any team with a consistent diet of winning is going to feel like the “target’s on [their] backs.”

    New England Patriots or New York Yankees, and imagine they’ve had that success in a period comparative to the Elite’s four years.

    No other team can come close.

    Also:With a spot in the 2018 Basketball Tournament championship game on the line, Team Fredette came up short as it fell to Eberlein Drive, 80-76, in the semifinals Thursday night in Baltimore.
    Eberlein Drive will face Overseas Elite on Friday at 9 p.m. ET in Baltimore. The stakes will be at an all-time high, with this tournament featuring a $2 million winner-take-all prize.

    Overseas Elite wins for the 4th year.

    Guess BP has to go with them for some cash- though their fan group is probably huge.

    How One Team Built A Dynasty—And Won $7 Million—In The Basketball Tournament
    Entire article:

    Interesting article that concludes with: "A fifth consecutive TBT title might not be in the offing. McCollum and Kennedy, the team’s leaders, both said that they don’t plan on playing again next summer. McCollum is getting married in July, while Kennedy wants to spend more time with his 18-month-old daughter. Other Overseas Elite veterans aren’t ready to commit to another year, either. This could be well be it, the end of an unlikely dynasty."
