  • Changed the title of the thread to a more sensible "The Basketball Tournament - Wichita Regional".

  • The AfterShocks will be playing Iowa United (guys from Iowa, Iowa State, Drake, and a woman player formerly of Iowa) on Thursday July 25th at 8 PM. The game is being televised on ESPN.

    Of note, the AfterShocks are the #2 seed, also in the Wichita Regional with alumni teams from Colorado, KU, K State and Marquette.

      Are they sure that's not just one of the Korver boys?

      • The Self team is large. No Cle, no Rags for the Aftershocks and they added Shannon Shorter. Ok.

        We better hope Frankamp goes off because there aren't a ton of scorers on our team.

        • Perspective from an Iowa paper. They're not at all confident about the game against the AfterShocks

          We like to cut down nets and get sized for championship rings.

          • Cle was a difference maker. Not having him is a big blow.

              T. Eldridge says Cle and Rags will be there unless that has changed since yesterday. Not sure why the roster isn't right on the tbt site.

          • Here are ESPN's Rankings and Summary Write-ups:

            5. Golden Eagles (Marquette alumni), No. 1 seed (Wichita region)
            The Golden Eagles reached the semifinals in 2018 before suffering a 25-point loss to the eventual champions. Marquette's alumni team returns Jamil Wilson and adds Dwight Buycks and Andrew Rowsey, creating a big three that could be nearly impossible to stop.

            9. Self Made (Kansas alumni), No. 3 seed (Wichita region)
            Self Made is a blast from the past featuring four players -- Elijah Johnson, Tyshawn Taylor, Travis Releford and Kevin Young -- from Kansas' 2012 national runner-up team. With Perry Ellis, Landen Lucas and former nine-year NBA veteran Darrell Arthur (surprise!) making up the rest of the roster, Self Made could morph into one of the elite alumni teams.

            15. AfterShocks (Wichita State alumni), No. 2 seed (Wichita region)
            Wichita State was the class of mid-major basketball before moving up to the AAC two years ago. Now, the alumni team will compete in TBT with the likes of big man Shaq Morris, sharpshooter Conner Frankamp and ex-New York Knicks and Washington Wizards guard Toure' Murry leading the way.

            20. Team Colorado (Colorado alumni), No. 4 seed (Wichita region)
            Team Colorado has underperformed since its impressive run to the 2016 TBT championship game, and it is seeded fourth in the Wichita region. However, any roster that includes ex-New York Knicks forward Chris Copeland and Marcus Hall (24 PPG in 2016) should be recognized in the top 20.

            28. Purple & Black (Kansas State alumni), No. 5 seed (Wichita region)
            Marcus Foster might have transferred to Creighton as a collegian, but he is resurfacing with other Kansas State alumni on Purple & Black. DJ Johnson, Justin Edwards and Thomas Gipson III will join forces with Foster in the Wichita region.

            44. Sideline Cancer, No. 6 seed (Wichita region)
            Sideline Cancer will have to bring more energy on the defensive end after allowing 100 points to Gael Nation in the first round of last summer's tournament. Remy Abell and Maurice Creek are two former Big Ten talents who could flip the switch for this roster in 2019.

            50. Iowa United, No. 7 seed (Wichita region)
            Iowa, Iowa State and Drake alumni represent the core of Iowa United. While former Cyclones star Marcus Fizer, Drake's all-time leading scorer Reed Timmer and recent Iowa graduates Peter Jok and Nicholas Baer are notable names, 2019 national women's college player of the year Megan Gustafson becomes the first active professional women's player to participate in TBT.

            62. Fort Hood Wounded Warriors, No. 8 seed (Wichita region)
            After just completing his career at Oklahoma, Rashard Odomes is the most notable name on Fort Hood. More importantly, this team will donate a portion of its winnings to the Wounded Warriors.

                    • Will be interesting to watch how guys like Stutz' and murry's game has evolved after playing professionally.
