‘Few Good Men’ part of final field revealed for $2 million basketball tournament
The Basketball Tournament, a $2 million winner-take-all event that features 64 teams of mostly current or former professional basketball players, revealed 24 more teams chosen at large on Tuesday.
Nine teams from each of the four regions had already received an automatic bid to the tournament last week after collecting the highest number of votes from fans online.
When the 7-foot kid from Torun, Poland, arrived at Gonzaga University to play basketball in 2012, he made an immediate impact. The previous season wasn’t bad, with a 25-10 record behind a talented squad that included Robert Sacre, Elias Harris and Steven Gray. They beat St. John’s, then lost to Brigham Young University in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
