Boeheim's Army Takes on North Broad Street Bullies in TBT 2nd Round

New, 3 comments

The Syracuse alums will get to face off against a team made up of mostly Temple alums tonight.

After cruising to victory in the first round, Boeheim's Army will have to deal with a bunch of bullies in the second.

Specifically, the North Broad Street Bullies, the seventh-seeded team in the Northeast region of The Basketball Tournament. The team is comprised of mostly former Temple Owls alumni.

Tip-off is scheduled for 4:15 p.m. and the game will once again be broadcast by Whistle Sports on their Facebook page.

The Bullies took care of business in their 2016 TBT opener with a 90-76 win over 20th & Olney.

Khalif Wyatt scored five 3-pointers and scored 25 points to lead North Broad Street Bullies to a 90-76 win over 20th and Olney on Saturday in Philadelphia. The North Broad Street Bullies outshot 20th and Olney from the field, 53.1 percent to 44.4 percent, in the first half, and used a 13-point cushion at the break to hold onto pole position. Randall Scootie added 19 points and eight rebounds for North Broad Street Bullies. Duren Tyreek paced 20th and Olney with 16 points, four rebounds, and an assist.

Wyatt, the 2013 Atlantic 10 Conference Player of the Year, might be the star player, but they also have other notable guys in Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Ramone Moore, and Scootie Randall.

Syracuse fans will remember Wyatt at the star of the Temple team that upset the Orange in Madison Square Garden in 2012. He scored a career-high 33 points that night.

By defeating 20th & Olney, they robbed us of finding out what would happen when the two teams involved in the TBT game where Eric Devendorf was ejected got a rematch. Regardless, should be a solid test for Syracuse Orange alumni squad as they look to advance to the TBT second weekend for the second-straight time.
