Can the Army secure the bag in Dayton?

Tonight’s the night where The Basketball Tournament crowns their 2021 Champion. Boeheim’s Army has been chasing this crown for seven summers, can they bring it home tonight?

Trying to keep them from grabbing that brass ring is Team 23. Led by Overseas Elite HC Marc Hughes this experienced group has rolled to the title game with only one of their wins by less than eight points. They came out of the West Virginia region where they knocked off hometown favorites Thundering Heard and Best Virginia. Then they took care of Sideline Cancer and Blue Collar U to set up this final.

Team 23 features a balanced attack with four players averaging double-digits led by Marcus Hall. Raphael Pudney has led Team 23 in rebounding and blocked shots. Boeheim’s Army has lived on the edge this run and will need to have a better offensive performance tonight. Tyrese Rice has led BA in scoring and assists and his Elam Ending scoring has been ridiculous.

The matchup between Team 23 and Boeheim’s Army tips at 9 pm from Dayton, OH, and will air on ESPN. As always, leave your pre-, in- and post-game comments below.
