It's open to anyone — collegians, pros, you, me — who can recruit enough votes for their team on the TBT website. Online voting is already well underway and runs until May 1. Then, most of the tournament runs from June 6 to 8, followed by a two-week break before the championship on June 28.
The teams with the largest social media support will automatically make the cut, so make sure you're supporting AO and Donte in their quest for $500K. The Cuse duo will be playing alongside Tony Durant, brother of Kevin.
As for why there isn't a bigger Syracuse presence, a rep says that there wasn't enough time to organize everyone. Shame, would have been awesome to see a team of SU expats on the floor together. You're telling me you wouldn't watch a squad consisting of AO, Donte, Devo, Jonny Flynn and Rick Jackson play together?
