The final roster for The Basketball Tournament (TBT) is set for Boeheim's Army. Lawrence Moten (The Big East's all-time leading scorer) and Demetris Nichols will be the last two additions to the team. Former Syracuse and Marist guard Louie McCroskey was set to join Boeheim's Army but was unable to do so because of TBT rules.

The final roster includes Eric Devendorf, Josh Pace, Hakim Warrick, Donte Greene, Rick Jackson, Mookie Jones, Baye Moussa Keita, Lawrence Moten, Terrence Roberts, Demetris Nichols, Willie Deane and Olu Famutimi.

Boeheim's Army, by and large the most popular team in the tournament based on fan votes, received a first-round bye and will begin play in Philadelphia on July 18. Representing the No.1 seed in the Northeast Region, the former Syracuse players will play either No. 12 seed Team Oohway with Dwight Hardy, Jordan Theodore and the Syracuse killer, Jeremy Hazell or No. 12 seed NYCSuperStars with Boston University and Queens College alums.

Should Boeheim's Army win its first game it will advance to play the following day. Boeheim's Army could see a potential matchup with former Georgetown players (DMV's Finest) in the Super 17. If you would like to attend the event in Philadelphia from July 17-19, you can purchase tickets here.

Following the regional events, TBT then moves to Chicago for the Super 17 and then on to New York for the last four games and championship game. The Super 17 will air live on ESPNU and the games in New York will air live on ESPN on August 1 and 2. Registered fans on TheTournament.com will be able to live stream the first-round games.

TBT operates under college rules but with halves only being 18 minutes. Players will be granted 6 fouls, teams with 4 timeouts and the shot clock will remain at 35 seconds.
