Boeheim's Army Will Face NYCSuperstars in its First TBT Matchup

The former Orange players will tip off this weekend in Philadelphia against the NYCSuperstars.

Boeheim's Army held its first practice on Monday in Syracuse to get ready for its first opponent, the NYCSuperstars. The former Syracuse Orange players will tip off at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday night, marking the seventh game of the day in Philadelphia. The NYCSuperstars' roster is comprised mostly of former players from Queens College and Boston University.

There has already been some drama in The Basketball Tournament; team Grantland, the arguable favorite to win the tournament, lost on Sunday. Two of the four No. 1 seeds have already lost. As one of the other No. 1 seeds, Boeheim's Army will attempt to dodge that fate this weekend. Fans who have voted will be able to live stream games from the TBT website.

GM Kevin Belbey said Boeheim's Army will be practicing this week in Syracuse and will also be signing autographs at My Favorite Sports Store at Destiny Mall on Wednesday between 6-8 p.m.

Following the game on Saturday, Boeheim's Army will be doing a meet and greet with the Syracuse Philadelphia Alumni Club. Use promo code MEETORANGE to get your meet and greet ticket. Only the first 50 people will be able to order a ticket. All proceeds will go to the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation.

Should the team win on Saturday they will advance to play at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday. Fans attending in Philadelphia this weekend can get their official Boeheim's Army jerseys here.
