After last night’s too-close-for-comfort victory over We Are D3, Boeheim’s Army advanced in TBT 2019 to face off against Gael Nation, a group of former Iona basketball players with some other talent mixed in.

Gael Nation is the No. 5 seed this year and some Syracuse Orange basketball fans might remember them from TBT in 2017 when they took Boeheim’s Army to overtime. They bring back Iona basketball’s all-time leading scorer in Steven Burt, who scored at will against the army in 2017, as well as standout A.J. English who holds a MAAC record for 3’s made in a single game (13).

Today’s game tips off at noon from the SRC Arena at Onondaga Community College. Should the army advance, it will play the winner No. 2 seed Armored Athlete or No. 3 seed Brotherly Love.

I’ll be on-site for this one, so come hang out here and on twitter @JamesSzuba.
